VOLES

HOW TO IDENTIFY VOLES IN NEWFOUNDLAND

Voles, not to be confused with moles, are pesky and unwelcome visitors in any garden. This rodent has a short tail, small eyes and tiny ears that are partially hidden by its fur. Voles’ underfur is typically thick and covered with longer guard hairs. There are as many as 23 different species of voles discoverable across North America.
Voles don’t hibernate. They are very active creatures year-round. Burrowing themselves into root systems of shrubs and trees, burrow systems can house several adult and young voles at a time.


ORDER/FAMILY

Rodentia/ Cricetidae

SCIENTIFIC NAME

Microtus

BIOLOGY

Voles are prolific breeders. Reproducing young year-round, some voles are capable of producing 5 to 10 litters a year with 3 to 6 young voles per litter.

BEHAVIOUR

While voles don’t pose any serious threat to humans, they cause extensive damage to fields, crops, gardens and plantings. Voles are discovered in fields and lawns with ample vegetation and coverage. Mulch and weeds provide voles both a food source as well as a hiding spot. Bulbs, root vegetables, shrubs and trees aren’t safe when voles have infested your garden.

PREVENTING A VOLE INFESTATION

Preventing a vole infestation is a difficult task. Minimizing the chance of an infestation is achieved by reducing the amount of vegetation in your garden. This means cutting back brush and weeds to create a clean environment. Regularly mowing your lawn and removing woodpiles can help too.

GETTING RID OF VOLES

If you’ve noticed voles inhabiting your lawn, baiting and trapping are two methods for eliminating them. Mouse snap traps can be used to trap voles. Did you know peanut butter is excellent bait for trapping voles too? Rather than complete this challenging task yourself, contact a professional vole exterminator instead. Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch utilizes industry-leading methods to complete Vole Removal for you.

I called these guys at about 7pm on a Sunday night and by 11pm the ant nest in the wall of my house was dead and no ants have been seen since. I didn't meet the tech personally but he was very professional on the phone and easy to deal with.
