Vole Control

CATS
You bet. They really go after the voles. In winter they dig through the
snow to find and eat them.
Get kittens and let them grow up out of doors, feed adequately too. They
will take to hunting for real food very quickly. You don;t need a Mother
cat around to teach them but that helps.
BLACK SNAKES
they will eat mammals from rabbits to voles
have some brought in to your property
make sure they have a good place to nest in winter, warm and protected from
the elements and that it is within the area you want  them to catch voles
they nest in the insulated roof of my well house during hibernation
I have seen them sandwich themselves between the ends of tightly packed hay
roundbales in a field
