Vole Extermination In Olive Branch MS

Humane Vole Control In Olive Branch MS - 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!

Vole Extermination In Olive Branch MS - Do I Have Voles Or Moles?

On a regular basis, this is a common question we often get from homeowners. Once you see the difference in vole damage vs. mole damage, it is easy to tell which animal is doing the damage.

Voles will create small holes around 2″ in diameter while digging nesting sites. Their FLAT tunnels are around 2″ wide 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 Olive Branch MS - Vole Reproduction

Voles reproduce throughout the entire year, with peak rates in the Spring and Summer. If you feel like your vole problem just won’t go away, you’re right!  A female vole will reach sexual maturity in about 13 days — that’s less than two weeks! Add to that the fact that the gestation period of a vole is 16-24 days — and you have a female vole with her first litter as early as the end of her first month of life! 

A typical vole litter has 5 to 8 babies, but it could have more. When you consider that any female baby vole in that first litter will also have her first litter in one more month, it becomes clear how fast these rodents can populate an area.

Vole Control In Olive Branch MS - What You Can Do

Voles have an acute sense of smell that they use to locate food. They can smell seeds buried under the soil and often dig them up for a snack. This acute sense of smell is what you can use to help deter them. 

Scents such as peppermint, cedar and rosin have been known to repel voles. Homemade brews of essential oils and water in a spray bottle can be used on areas where you have noticed vole damage. Also, while voles relish hostas and dahlias, they hate certain plants like pachysandra, boxwood, and especially daffodils. Daffodils are definitely on their “DO NOT EAT” plant list!  Including plants they dislike may help diminish vole damage in your lawn and garden.

We also perform wildlife trapping in Olive Branch MS 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!
