Vole Extermination In Germantown TN

Vole Control In Germantown TN - Vole Damage

Just like moles, voles can be the most aggravating little creatures homeowners ever face.  Voles are also known as field mice, but unlike their rodent cousins, these little herbivores only eat plants and bark from trees and bushes. 

Even though voles spend quite a lot of time above ground, you will rarely see an actual vole.  However, their damage is easily recognizable.   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 bark missing from the bottom of trees and bushes.  Voles will often use existing mole tunnels to travel across your yard. 

 

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

This is a common question we get from homeowners on a regular basis.  Once you see the difference in vole damage vs mole damage, it is easy to tell what you may have.

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 Germantown TN - Vole Reproduction

Voles reproduce throughout the entire year, with peak rates in the spring and summer. If you feel like your vole problem just keeps getting worse, you’re probably right! These little things can reproduce at an amazing rate!  Just like rat and mice, 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.  Within a month, another generation is born, and another after that.  Suddenly, it seems like your whole yard is full of these little pests!

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.
