The vole is more commonly referred to as a "field mouse" (not the common house mouse) and the Prairie Vole is generally what you will find in our area. The vole prefers to feed on seeds, bulbs and tender roots with a fondness for Hostas and other ornamental plants. The voles will even eat the new bark on young trees and girdle the trunk of the tree leaving it open to disease or insects. A vole feeds both day and night and can eat up to twice its weight each day which can cause extensive damage to flower beds, ornamental shrubs, trees and more. (This damage is sometimes blamed on moles as the vole will use mole tunnels). Voles can breed when they are only 25-30 days old and like the typical mouse, can reproduce very quickly - sometimes producing 50-100 offspring per year. Voles will often use the mole tunnels for traveling and at times you may find numerous holes, generally around 1-2" in diameter, where the voles have broke through the tunnel and created openings. Some describe the vole as looking like a "mini muskrat" and upon close inspection I have found that to be true. Predators like hawks, owls, foxes and skunks prey on voles and may keep the numbers in check. However, if left unchecked, voles can create an extensive amount of damage to your beautiful lawn and garden areas and may need to be trapped to an acceptable level. We trap voles using a variety of poison free methods for the safety of you, your pets and other wildlife.
Voles create holes about the size of a silver dollar. Voles will colonize an old mole tunnel and you may see dozens of holes in a small area.
