Is your ground buzzing with excitement for spring? It may not be what you think it is. Maybe the past few months and more recently you’ve noticed your dogs racing all over the yard chasing something that isn’t there. Now that the snow has melted and the temperatures are rising you’ve noticed new designs etched into your yard.
Do they look a little like this?
If they look similar to these pictures, it's likely you have voles in your yard.
Voles create a golf ball sized tunnel like runways ranging about two inches wide. They look similar to a common house mouse. Don’t let them confuse you, voles have a shorter tail and a rounder body. They are unlikely to come into your home. Their diet consists mainly of grass blades, garden crops, roots, bulbs, and seeds. Understanding what they like to eat will help you understand why they’ve likely taken up residence in your yard.
We highly encourage having your yard treated at least twice yearly once in spring and once in the fall. If left untreated you may face more damage and unplanned etched tunnels in your yard.
