ANSWER:
Vole damage to landscaping is often unsightly, but the replacement cost of damaged plants may add up quickly. Once the damage pattern is analyzed during a site inspection, Trutech technicians will recommend a trapping and baiting program to keep the vole population below acceptable levels. Completely eliminating the animals from the landscape may not be possible, but a significant reduction will quickly stop plant damage and allow the vegetation to return to its original luster.
