The Mighty Vole

When you talk about a pest, you might mean an irritating relative that asks incessant questions while following you around your kitchen. When we talk about pests, we mean an organism that is a nuisance usually in the home. Voles are definitely a pest. If you value your yard and have spent a great deal of time transforming it into a paradise, voles will definitely be a pest. If you have voles causing problems in your yard, you can count on Pointe Pest Control to provide real solutions to any vole infestation issue.

General Information

Voles are also referred to as field mice or even meadow mice. Unlike the house mouse, voles will not invade your home because they prefer the outside. Voles have far shorter tails than mice, with longer fur. As far as food choices go, voles are vegetarians. They enjoy plants, bulbs, roots, grasses, tree bark, fruits and nuts. Since they love to eat, voles will easily consume their own body weight every day. Since they burrow underground, they are able to get to and destroy sensitive bulbs and roots throughout your yard and garden. Voles get most of their water needs from the foods they eat. Voles are rapid reproducers. Under ideal conditions, a female vole can produce a little over 100 offspring in a single year.

The Signs of an Infestation

There are a few signs that you have a vole situation. One of the easiest ways to know if your yard is infested with voles is to look for pathways. To make things easier, voles create pathways through grass. These pathways act as roads that enable a vole to get to food sources quickly. These pathways are most prevalent after the snows melt. Voles love using these pathways to travel under the snow. Another sign will be the damage to your vegetation. Voles love to eat bulbs. If you have any bulbs in your landscape, they will find them and eat them. They also love to eat the bark off of trees. If you notice the bottom of your tree is missing the bark, there is a good chance that you can blame the voles. Eating all the bark from a tree will girdle it and can easily kill your favorite shade tree.
