Voles have similar-sounding names and both create havoc in yards, but they are two totally distinct pests that are sometimes mistaken. Moles appear to be more well-known, yet voles are responsible for much of the harm attributed to moles. It’s critical to identify which pest you’re dealing with since efficient mole and vole management is dependent on directing the correct action to the right animal. We treat voles using exterior bait stations as well as chemical bait injected into the holes and provide the best mole and vole treatment in Edmonton. We utilize mole traps and/or fumigate the tunnels to control moles. There is no assurance for moles; voles, on the other hand, can be managed.
The biggest difference between moles and voles is the type of damage they cause. Moles are insectivores, and their primary diet is earthworms with a few grubs and insects tossed in as appetizers.
They don’t eat plants, and so their landscape carnage is really the incidental damage of tunnels and runways dug in lawns while on the never-ending search for more worms. They’re gray to dark brown in color, about 6 to 7 inches long and most distinguishable by their long noses and paddled, webbed front feet – perfect for tunnel excavation.
Unlike moles, voles are rodents that look much like mice, only with shorter tails. They’re dark brown in color, about 5 inches in length and have eyes and ears that you can readily notice. They feed on grass and perennial-flower roots, they’ll eat seeds and bulbs, and especially in winter when other foods are scarce, they’ll even girdle the bark off trees and shrubs.
While voles have similar-sounding names and both wreak disaster in the yards, these two completely distinct pests are sometimes mistaken. They are quite different. Moles seem to be much better recognized, yet they are indeed stupid, causing a great deal of damage to moles.
It is vital to identify which pest you have since efficient management of the mole and of the volley depends on the correct action for the specific animal. Mole and vole treatment indoor invasions when outside conditions support large numbers of these crustaceans. Treatments can provide short-term relief, but for long–term success.
We treat voles with external bait stations and also apply chemical bait into the holes. Whereas moles we use mole traps and/or fumigate the tunnels. There is no guarantee for moles; voles can be controlled.
