We can rid you of Vole problems safely and efficiently

There are more than 20 species of voles found in the U.S. These pests are active all year and are often found on private properties. While their habits vary slightly from species to species, most voles tunnel just under the earth’s surface as well as further underground. Their lengthy tunnel systems allow them to nest and feed undisturbed.

APPEARANCE

Voles are small, stocky, and resemble field mice. Species vary in length but are between four and eight inches long on average. They have short tails and legs, thick fur, and small eyes. Their fur is either brown or gray.

DIET

As omnivores, vole diets most often consist of plants, grass, seeds, and bulbs. The pests also eat bark from trees, and some species prey on insects. Crop fields and gardens are at high risk of becoming infested with voles.

HABITAT

Voles are adaptable when it comes to their living environment, though they prefer to have some kind of coverage in the form of tall grass. As such, lawns, farms, gardens, fields, and meadows are common nesting grounds.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

While voles do not usually enter homes, they do frequently gather in yards. Their tendency to burrow underground creates problems for landowners as this behavior overturns soil and uproots plants. Also, the pests can cause structural damage to homes when they dig under buildings.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Since voles eat tree bark, plant seeds, and bulbs, their presence in yards is detrimental to the health of vegetation. Additionally, their burrowing ruins landscaping and can make lawn maintenance difficult or dangerous. Voles sometimes carry diseases such as tularemia and plague, as well.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Homeowners can reduce the possibility of finding voles in their yards by removing weeds and other debris that serve as hiding spots. Mowing lawns and maintaining gardens also deters the pests. Finally, erecting fences buried at least six inches into the ground around plants limits their access to food and makes yards less favorable to voles.
