Vole repellent


A recent study found that the bird repellent, anthraquinone, was highly effective at reducing girdling damage (>90% reduction in damage) from voles to stems of young trees. The repellent also exhibited substantial longevity (likely several months and potentially longer).  We are interested in grower feedback on the potential for using this repellent for minimizing vole damage to orchard and vine crops.  We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to answer the following survey questions to assist our efforts.  The survey is very short and should take less than 3 minutes.  Thanks you!
