Meadow voles also known as “meadow mice” or just plain “voles” are blunt-nosed, short-tailed mice that love to eat bulbs, hostas and tree roots, but when those are not available they will eat grass roots. Voles are heavy vegetation eaters and considered the most abundant rodent, with an ability to multiply from two to 100 within a single year.
Meadow voles will move from empty fields or uncultivated areas to adjacent lawns, gardens and landscaping in search of food and shelter.
Voles are not a health risk to humans and pets because they typically are not found indoors, but are considered a nuisance pest when they create trails across yards and destroy expensive landscaping. They can cause severe damage especially in the winter months when they are active under snow cover. The damage is noticeable in the spring after the snow melts.
Voles are a difficult pest to eradicate. Due to the complexity of treatment, voles are generally not a pest many people can eliminate on their own. Our solution includes a thorough inspection, highly effective control measures and active monitoring.
