VOLES? DON'T YOU MEAN MOLES?
Most homeowners have heard of moles, the small rodent like creatures who live in tunnels underground, but most have never heard of voles until they become a problem. The vole is a small rodent also referred to as a meadow mouse or field mouse. They feed on grass, roots of shrubs, flower bulbs and small tree roots. They can quickly wipe out your entire landscaping if left uncontrolled.
How do I know if I have voles?
Voles construct well-defined, visible tunnels, or "runways" at or near the surface, about two inches wide. Vole runways result from the voles eating the grass blades, as well as from the constant traffic of numerous little feet beating over the same path. Voles are just as active in the winter as in warmer weather, especially when there is snow covering the ground. They love to burrow through the grass making tunnels under the snow, eating grass and the roots of your bushes. Often the first indication the homeowner has of a vole infestation is when the snow starts to melt and they see the paths made by the pitter patter of tiny feet.
What can I do?
If you suspect you have a vole problem, contact us. We will place tamper resistant boxes containing poisonous bait in the landscaping around the exterior perimeter of your home. Depending on the severity of the problem you may be able to get by with one treatment and a follow-up although many of our customers need a year round monthly maintenance program to control these prolific creatures.
