Voles, also known as meadow mice or field mice, damage trees and lawns due to their chewing, tunneling, and digging habits. Voles may feed on or contaminate food, grains, and animal feed. Voles can spread germs to other animals and humans (e.g., salmonella). If you think you have a vole problem, talk to a pest management professional to control vole populations.
Vole runways commonly appear when the snow melts. If left unmanaged, prairie voles can cause extensive damage to young trees, garden beds, garden plants, and lawns. Prevent vole damage on your property. Birch Fumigators can remove voles and prevent voles.
Voles are small animals with bulky bodies, bushy tails, and round heads with tiny eyes. They are most commonly seen in woodlands, fields, prairies, or cultivated areas with thick ground cover such as farms. Voles primarily consume grass shoots, roots, and leaves from plants.
There are many different types of voles, including the prairie vole or meadow vole. Voles have tiny ears and eyes, as well as short tails; these characteristics distinguish the vole species from house mice or deer mice. They’re active during the day and night all year round. They cut grass runways and maintain them short. These runways lead to a variety of burrow entrances between 1-1/2 and 2 inches in diameter.
