Voles are becoming a larger pest issue for many cities in Summit, Salt Lake, Utah, and Wasatch counties, although many homeowners may not know that voles are the problem. Voles look like mice and are often mislabeled as such. Additionally, if you haven’t seen the offenders for yourself, it can be difficult to know if the lines left in your yard are caused by moles, gophers, or voles. Pest control treatments vary depending on the pest, so it’s important to know which animal you’re dealing with before calling for pest control.
Voles are small rodents that are similar to mice but are larger with a thicker build and very short tail. Their coats are typically a brown or gray color, allowing them to blend in well with brush and dirt where they spend most of their time burrowing. Whereas gophers and moles live alone, voles live in vast colonies. If you’ve seen multiple critters, chances are that you have voles.
The best way to tell if you have voles is to look at the trails left behind in your yard. Voles live underground and burrow in large networks that will leave trails in the grass. While gophers and moles leave raised ridges or mounds on the surface of the ground, vole trails leave rivets or cracks in the ground because they are closer to the surface. Voles also leave behind small holes, about the size of a golf ball, instead of large holes like gophers and moles make.
Voles are vegetarians and will feast on grass, flower bulbs, root vegetables, and shrubs, leaving your landscape in turmoil. Additionally, voles are prolific breeders and since they don’t hibernate, their populations can get out of hand very quickly.
A single vole may not seem like much to worry about, but voles can spiral into a big problem in no time. Voles are active all year, which means you can’t wait them out before treating them.
