Vole Extermination In Collierville TN

Vole Control In Collierville TN - Vole Damage

We receive calls about rats or mice outside our clients’ homes, and very often they have a vole infestation instead.  Voles are also known as field mice and although you will rarely see an actual vole, their damage is easily recognizable.

Vole holes are roughly 2 inches around and found in groupings of several holes close together.   These rodents will tunnel through your yard in search of roots and plants.  As these animals eat the roots of your grass, your grass will die and leave an ugly path approximately two inches wide across your lawn.  You will also notice chew marks at the bottom of younger trees and saplings, and even missing bark at the bottom of mature trees.

 

Vole Extermination In Collierville TN - Do I Have Voles Or Moles?

We love our gardens in Collierville TN, and this kind of damage to unseen animals can be so frustrating!  But how to tell if you have moles or voles?  Easy.

Voles will create small holes around 2 inches in diameter while digging nesting sites.  Their tunnels are around 2 inches wide, flat and usually sunken.

Moles will create hills from the dirt they excavate while digging nesting sites.  Their feeder tunnels are raised ridges and much larger than vole tunnels.  Voles will often use old abandoned mole tunnels as well.

Vole Control In Collierville TN - Vole Reproduction

Like all rodents, voles can multiple and spread incredibly fast!  These animals will reproduce throughout the entire year, with peak rates in the spring and summer.  A female vole will reach sexual maturity in about 13 days — that’s less than two weeks! Add to that the fact that voles’ gestation period is 16-24 days, and a female vole can have her first litter as early as the end of her first month of life. 

A typical vole litter has 5 to 8 baby voles, but it could have more. Unfortunately, rodents are excellent mothers and raise their litters effectively.  Because so many babies survive, the next generations become larger and larger until before you know it, you have a vole infestation on your hands.

Humane Vole Control In Collierville TN - Cutting Edge Technology!

At Apex Wildlife Control, we stay on the cutting edge of vole control and maintenance technology for our clients!

Using a special compressor made just for this purpose, our technician will inject Carbon Monoxide into the ground which will quickly fill a 200 foot long vole tunnel. Any voles in those tunnels will be humanely euthanized within 2 to 3 minutes. By injecting this gas underground, there is no danger for children or pets, and no damage to your lawn or garden.  We do not utilize any poisons or pesticides.

If you are sick and tired of seeing ugly tunnels and holes in your beautiful lawn, give Apex Wildlife Control a call today!  Our skilled technicians are ready to help!

We also perform wildlife trapping in Collierville TN for rats, mice, squirrels, skunks, 

moles, opossums, raccoons,  armadillos, and much more. 

So if you have some little visitors you need evicted from your home or property, 

give Apex Wildlife Control a call today. 

We are happy to help!
