People often mistake voles for moles, but these are not the same animals. Voles travel along the surface while moles travel underground. A Vole looks much more like a mouse, while a mole’s ears and eyes are difficult even to spot. While moles eat grubs and insects, voles are much more likely to compete with humans for edibles. They like to dine on vegetables, and they can also cause damage to bushes, grass and trees in their search for food. If you have a vole problem, it makes sense to address it right away, before they have caused extensive damage to your plantings or lawns.
Signs of a vole infestation
You can see vole paths throughout the ground all over the yard. If you haven’t seen any animals yet, a sure sign it’s a vole and not a mole is if your vegetables and grass are being eaten. The paths that voles dig are at the top of the dirt and are generally a couple of inches across. Yellow plants, droppings, and burrows are the primary signs that voles are at work on your property.
Occasionally you may see shrubs or small bushes that are leaning or look ill, and this can also be a sign that voles are tunneling around. Depending on how many you have, they can cause a significant amount of damage to your plants.
