    Voles !! Eating rubber liner

    I have a 20' x 24' pond with rubber liner. Had it about 12 years with no trouble. For the last 3 years I've had voles eating holes in the liner. Tried patching the holes and it worked for a year or so, but now I'm losing large amounts of water each day again, so I guess they're back at it. Anyone got a remedy for voles? How about a good patching product? Thanks

    Have had a similar problem with holes chewed in the liner. Discovered it was ants. Yep, ants! Caught them in the act and observed them chewing off small particles of liner and taking them back to the nest. Strange.
