Below is one of the paragraphs from that article. Just a regular wood base mouse trap should work just fine. And, for those with chipmunk problems I have successfully used the old-fashioned wood base rat trap baited with pecans. Jerry

/Regular, snap type mouse traps can be very effective in killing voles. When baiting this style of trap, try to cut pea-sized pieces of apple that include some skin. If the skin is slid under the bait bar's hook or teeth, it will be harder for a rodent to steal the bait. Again, drop a couple pieces of apple inside tunnels. Voles often turn cannibalistic and a trap with fragments of skin usually indicates additional voles./
