Delaware Vole Control
You’ve got voles! No, that’s not a good thing. Voles are a destructive rodent that loves to chow down on plants, trees, and grass. Imagine what a family can do to your Delaware home or business! To avoid this problem, learn about vole behavior, effective prevention techniques, and when to call in a pest management professional.
What Are Voles?
Voles, also called meadow mice, resemble their rodent cousins but are a bit larger and have shorter tails. Unlike mice, they tend to stay outdoors because their primary foods are plants, trees, and grass, explain the local Delaware vole control experts at Viking Pest.
How to Identify Voles
Voles are shy and quite fast, skittering into shelter at the slightest hint of company. For this reason, you may not spot the voles hanging around your garden. You will spot the destruction, however. Voles don’t dig completely underground tunnels like moles, but they do dig little tracks or runways around in the dirt, explain the vole control experts at Viking Pest. If you have vole neighbors, you’ll notice these as well as wilted plants whose root systems have been destroyed. Also, inspect trees around the base for signs of nibbling.
What Problems Can Voles Cause for Delaware Home and Business Owners?
The biggest issue with voles is all the destruction that they cause. Their little runways tear up the ground and their hunger destroy all your favorite plants. Additionally, their presence has the potential to attract larger, more dangerous predators that like to eat them to your yard. These include raccoons, foxes, coyotes, and snakes, state the wildlife control experts at Viking Pest.
When Are Voles Active in Delaware?
Voles are active year-round. They don’t live very long lives. Most voles only live between 3 and 6 months, explain the wildlife control experts at Viking Pest.
How to Control Voles in Delaware
Getting rid of a vole infestation in Delaware is no small feat, so avoiding it before it begins is a better strategy. Wildlife control experts in Delaware suggest putting decorative (but practical) fences around your gardens and trees to make it difficult for the voles to access food. They also recommend not leaving piles of firewood or junk lying around, offering them the perfect place to build their nests.
