Vole Control

Vole Control Riverside, Corona, Norco, Eastvale CAVoles, also called meadow mice, are typically gray or brown in color and are pretty compact rodents.  They have short tails, compressed legs, and stocky bodies.  They flaunt eyes that are extremely small and have ears that are partially hidden.  They have a layer of underfur that is generally dense and covered with longer, thicker guard hairs.

Voles do not have set times that they are active so they can be found scurrying about all year round in the day or night.  Voles dig many shallow burrows and make underground nests that are comprised of leaves, grass, and stems.  They have no problem burrowing through snow in the winter.

Although vole numbers fluctuate from year to year, their populations often increase unexpectedly and rapidly.  This is often when wildlife control services are needed.  Not many homeowners know how to get rid of voles and require trained specialists.

Voles are extremely poor climbers and do not usually enter homes.  However, vole control is often needed for the exterior of the property.  This is primarily due to the amount of damage a vole can cause.

Voles feed on a wide range of garden plants.  Some of these include carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, Brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and turnips.  They also damage landscape plantings such as lilies.  These unwanted pests will gnaw the bark of fruit trees and damage tree trunks.  This damage will disrupt the flow of nutrients and water to the trees and can kill them altogether.

For these reasons, wildlife control services are needed to protect and maintain the vegetation and plants that reside on your property.  Trained specialists understand vole behavior and know how to get rid of voles.  Some of the most common vole control practices include:

  • Baiting — Toxic baits can be the fastest and most practical way to get rid of a vole infestation over a large area. Anticoagulants interfere with the blood-clotting mechanisms inside the body and essentially cause them to bleed to death.
  • Trapping — Trapping is effective when vole control is needed in a small area. Trap placement is vital since voles do not like to stray.
  • Exclusion — Wire mesh fences are often used to keep voles completely out of gardens. It is recommended that they be placed 3-5 inches in the ground and stand as high as 12-18 inches above the ground.
  • Habitat Modification — A wildlife control specialist may recommend that you modify your property to make it less attractive for voles. This may include getting rid of weeds and heavy mulch.
