Pest control is the process of identifying, preventing, and eliminating pests from your home or business. Pests can include insects, rodents, birds, and other animals that are harmful to humans or our property.
If the vole infestation is severe or if the damage they are causing is extensive, it is recommended to seek the help of a pest control professional like us at Birch Fumigators. We have the expertise and experience to identify the specific species of voles present and develop an effective treatment plan. Professional pest control services can offer advanced methods of control such as fumigation, which may not be safe or practical for individuals to perform on their own.
While voles are not known to transmit diseases to humans, they may carry ticks, fleas, or other parasites that can transmit diseases to other animals.
The best time to control voles is in the fall or winter when their population is highest and they are actively feeding. Setting traps or modifying their habitat by removing their food sources and habitat can be effective methods. It’s important to remember that some level of vole activity is normal and beneficial for the ecosystem.
Voles are not considered dangerous to humans or pets, but their activity can cause significant damage to vegetation and landscaping.
Voles can cause damage to lawns, gardens, and crops by feeding on vegetation and gnawing on the bark of trees and shrubs. Their burrowing activity can also damage root systems and disrupt soil structures.
Voles are herbivores and primarily feed on plant matter, such as grasses, roots, bulbs, and seeds. They may also feed on bark, fruits, and vegetables.
