That's the one I used. There is also a type that uses a small solar panel instead of batteries. It's expensive and it won't work in my garden which has a lot of shade. The cheapest method is to half burry empty bottles at a slight angle in the ground. The wind entering the open bottle will make a sound that is to deter the voles. It’s the sound you make when you blow into an open bottle at an angle. I tried this without much success. But we are in a valley and don’t get much wind.
