Voles are mouse-like rodents somewhat similar in appearance to pocket gophers. They have a compact, heavy body, short legs, a short-furred tail, small eyes, and partially hidden ears. Their long, coarse fur is blackish brown to grayish brown. When fully grown they can measure 5 to 8 inches long, including the tail.
Populations regularly go through cycles of low to high numbers with occasional sudden increases that can send numbers soaring up to several thousand per acre.
Damage Voles Cause
Voles directly kill plants by eating the roots and other vegetation in the area. Voles can destroy lawns, gardens, and generally make your once beautiful landscaped property into a barren crater pocketed nightmare!
Options for Vole Removal
Trapping: We place traps in the Vole runways near the burrow entrances. We return to remove the trap and captured Vole.
Gassing: We locate a burrow and pump Carbon Monoxide gas into the tunnel(s). The effectiveness varies with this as we do not physically remove the Vole at the time.
Poisoning: We locate a burrow and place a secured poison bait station that is both child and pet safe.
Exclusion: We use special stainless steel (non-rusting) material which prevents the intrusion of Voles into a sealed area.
