Vole Control We've Got You Covered

Utah Vole Control

That’s No Mouse or Mole…It’s a Vole!

There are 155 different species of voles. If you’ve seen one of these running around, you've probably referred to it as a mouse. Australians sometimes call them field mice, but they’re actually the stouter, round-headed, furry-tailed cousin of lemmings, hamsters, and muskrats.

Voles are small, stout rodents with a blunt-nose and a short tail—and actually they’re just a bit larger than a mouse. They grow to be four to six inches long with brown or gray hair, and a pair of distinctly large front teeth they use to chew through bark and roots.

Voles Can Inflict Significant Damage to Yards—Seemingly Overnight

So why the detailed definition and description? Why do voles merit their own pest page?

These little rodents, quirky and innocent at first glance, are among the most infestation-prone and destructive creatures in the state. They may be small, but if left to their own devices, a cluster of voles can multiply within your yard and annihilate your landscaping.

Are They Known for Indoor Infestations?

The good news is they don’t particularly care to invade homes or structures. When they do, it is usually by accident. The bad news is that voles feed on greens above ground and, like gophers, will dig and tunnel their way across your property, chewing up roots as they go.

Voles are one of Utah’s most prolific rodents, with the ability to multiply from two to over a hundred in a single year. Because voles forage on grasses, flowers, vegetables, fruits, bulbs, and plant roots, they’ll have no regard for your garden or landscaping as they spread, expand, and devour your vegetation.

Adding Insult to Injury...Voles Don’t Take a Winter Break

Voles are so sneaky and resilient to the elements that you may not even know you have a problem until after the winter snow melts. All you know is that your landscaping was looking pretty good before the snow came, and now it looks like a shredded mess.

Voles remain active year-round. Rather than hibernate, they continue to dig tunnels beneath the snow, feed on grass blades, the roots of grass blades, and any shrubbery or tree bark they happen to come across.

How to Identify the Presence of Voles

Except in cases of heavy infestation, voles are rarely seen. They spend the bulk of their time cruising underground in their extensive network of tunnels and runways. These are one inch to two-inch openings that can be difficult to spot and, much like gopher tunnels, frequently siphon away the irrigation water away your yard relies on to flourish.

Ridding Your Property of Voles

Depending on the size and severity of your infestation, our Utah vole control technicians offer several options for extermination—each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Every situation is unique and is assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine the best method and strategy for eliminating these pests and insuring they’re removed for good.
