Default Pennsylvania Meadow Vole/Field Mice

Anyone ever have problems with Meadow Voles, or Field Mice? After the amount of snow cover we had this year, we're experiencing a record number of these rodents. They've already gone through 2 of our hostas, and now I'm worried about my hop shoots.

Caught one in a snap-trap, but not too sure if they'll go after the hops, or not.

I have 8-10 kinds of small rodents at my place. My meadow looks like Swiss Cheese. Haven't had problems. Even the gophers and moles ignore the hops. Deer will take a bite occasionally, but never eat much.
