Vole Damage This Winter

September 26th, 2014 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Vole damage usually peaks in the winter months, as voles can run around under the snow unchecked by their natural predators. The most common damage we see is holes in the turf, peeled bark around shrubs/young trees and tracks all throughout the yard.  Below is a few examples:

Vole Damage

March 13th, 2013 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Voles have been hard at work this winter. As the snow melts you may see the damage they have created. Many people confuse this for mole damage, but voles are to blame for this.


Seeing holes in your lawn and bark beds?

February 24th, 2012 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Voles are field mice and can cause problems by damaging lawns, gardens, tree plantings and other plants. Voles occasionally will use tunnels developed by moles to gain access to flower bulbs and other plant roots. This damage often is blamed on moles by mistake. Moles feed on insects and earthworms and rarely consume plant materials.

Probably the most extensive and costly damage caused by voles occurs to woody plants in winter. At times voles severely damage or kill many young trees and shrubs, including orchard, windbreak and landscape plantings. Voles will eat the green inner bark layer of trees and shrubs when preferred foods are unavailable.

They survive quite well under the snow 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 the bark.  They leave holes the size of quarters in the bark.

We offer a granular repellent application to deter their digging in your bark beds.  One application in your foundational beds is only $50.00.  Contact us for a price to treat your entire lawn and other non-foundational beds.
