The process for pest control treatment typically begins with a thorough inspection to identify the extent and type of pest infestation. Based on the findings, a customized treatment plan is developed, taking into account the specific pest problem and location. Prior to the treatment, necessary preparations are made, such as clearing clutter and ensuring the safety of people and pets. The treatment itself involves the targeted application of chosen methods, such as sprays, baits, or traps. Follow-up visits may be conducted to monitor progress and make adjustments if needed. The pest control professional may also provide recommendations for preventive measures to minimize the risk of future infestations.
Pest control treatment offers several benefits that contribute to the overall well-being and comfort of a space. Some key benefits include:

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.
The best time to control voles is during late fall and early winter. During this period, vegetation is beginning to die back, and snow hasn’t yet fallen in many regions, making it easier to spot signs of vole activity and to apply control measures. Voles are active year-round, but in the late fall and early winter, they begin to establish the under-snow tunnels and pathways that they will use all winter. Implementing control measures, such as placing traps or baits, clearing away vegetation near the garden, or installing physical barriers, during this time can prevent a population explosion in the spring. Additionally, controlling voles before the breeding season in the spring can help minimize the damage they cause to plants and trees throughout the year.
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.
