What is a Vole?
While voles are similar to other rodents and are often mistaken for field mice, they have a few characteristics that make them uniquely different. Voles have stockier, rounder bodies, and their ears are noticeably smaller than a mouse’s ears. They are between 5 – 7 inches long and have distinctly orange teeth due to their diet of plants and roots. Adult voles are usually brownish-black in color with a gray underbelly. Baby voles are entirely gray and have less fur than adults.
Voles live in grassy areas such as hillsides, orchards, or pastures. Since voles love grass, they will also invade yards and gardens. Voles also populate very quickly and produce as many as 12 litters each year! Each vole litter has between 3-6 offspring, which means that they can rapidly take over your yard.
Voles are not dangerous animals, but they cause immense damage to yards and gardens over time. If you notice signs of voles, it is essential to act quickly and call the professionals at OMNIS for our Castle Rock vole control service!
Signs of Voles
Voles live underground, so they can be hard to detect. However, they have some visible signs that you can catch. If you notice holes about 1 – 1.5 inches in diameter in your yard, it could be a vole entrance or exit. Piles of dirt can also be an indicator that voles are nearby. If you notice that parts of your yard have become squishy to the step, it could mean that a vole burrow is under the surface. Dying plants are also a sign of voles, as they feed on plants and roots. You might also identify vole runways in your yard. A vole runway is about 1.5 inches wide and typically follows a straight course for a distance.
If you see any of these signs of voles, please call OMNIS today for an inspection!
Our Castle Rock vole control service will rid your property of pesky voles. Our team may use various methods to control voles, such as traps, repellants, and certain yard precautions. While we can often use mechanical methods such as trapping for vole control, the OMNIS team will determine the best removal method for your situation during our inspection process. Call OMNIS today at 720-583-4126 to schedule your inspection!
Residential Vole Control
Our residential pest control services consist of four steps where we seek out any current pest issues, remove pests, and monitor to ensure they do not return to your home.
The first step in our process is to complete a detailed inspection. A certified pest control specialist will visit your property to perform an in-depth assessment, and the specialist will identify any pest issues or potential risk factors at this time.
After inspecting and identifying any pests on your property, our pest control experts will create a strategy to remove them. Once we remove any pests, insects, or unwanted wildlife, we can take the necessary steps to repair any damages and monitor your property to keep them from returning.
If you notice any signs of voles or other pest activity, call OMNIS today for safe and effective pest removal.
