Frequently Asked Questions

What are voles?

Voles are small, burrowing rodents often found in yards and gardens. They are known for creating extensive tunnel systems underground, which can damage plant roots, grass, and landscaping.

How do I know if I have a vole problem?

Signs of vole activity include the presence of small, round tunnels across your lawn, unexplained plant damage, and the sighting of the rodents themselves, which resemble mice but with shorter tails.

Are voles dangerous?

Voles are not typically dangerous to humans or pets. However, their burrowing can weaken the structure of your yard or garden, leading to uneven ground and potential injury risks.

What methods do you use to control voles?

We use various methods tailored to your specific situation, including habitat modification to make your property less attractive to voles, direct burrow baiting, and using other stations around the property to monitor for ongoing or new activity.

Can I prevent voles from invading my property?

Yes, proactive measures such as maintaining a tidy yard, reducing dense ground cover, and installing physical barriers can significantly reduce the likelihood of a vole infestation.

How often should I seek professional pest control for voles?

The frequency of professional pest control depends on the severity of the vole problem and the effectiveness of implemented control measures. We recommend seasonal inspections to monitor vole activity and adjust control strategies as needed.
