Do you have holes in your bark after winter?

November 10th, 2011 by Tuff Turf Molebusters


If you answered yes to this question, then you probably have VOLES. Voles are field mice. They spend the winter under the snow eating the bark off bushes and trees. They survive quite well in the winter because the snow cover insulates them from the cold air and predators cannot find them. Voles chew the grass at ground level and build nests with the grass. This creates trails throughout the lawn. Voles are also able to tunnel in bark, and leave holes the size of quarters.

We now offer a granular repellent application to deter their digging in your bark beds. This application should go down prior to any snowfall.  If we have a thaw in the winter, it is a good idea to apply it again. One application in your foundational beds costs $50.00.  We can also treat your entire lawn. Contact us for a price to treat your entire lawn and other non-foundational beds.
