Are You Struggling To Deal With Voles On Your Reno Property?
December 05, 2022
You would only go out and dig a hole in the middle of your yard for a good reason. Voles are the same way. They dig holes in local yards for a good reason, at least in their own minds. These pests need a place to live. What they need to understand is that your property is not the right place. Here is why voles might invade your Reno property and how to get rid of these burrowing pests. Call Celtic Pest Control if you need direct help combatting an active infestation on your property, and find out what pest control in Reno could look like in your yard.
How To Identify Voles
Voles look like field mice that have tails. Their compact heavy bodies, partially hidden ears, durable paws, and small eyes allow them to burrow underground. One way to identify these pests is by the runways they create just under the surface of lawns. These runways can become impacted, causing trenches of dead grass that spiderweb across lawns. Another way to spot voles is by their entry tunnels. A vole hole lacks the soil mounding that other common pests like moles create. You might, however, find some fine dirt around the exterior of these 1 to 2-inch wide holes. If all else fails, trust our team to identify these ground pests for you. We have the experience and advanced equipment needed to spot yard pests like voles early and would be happy to pay you a visit.
The Problems Voles On Your Property Can Create
Voles are not complicated pests. They dig tunnels under yards and nibble on the roots of plants. This causes obvious damage. Tunnels often fall in on themselves, which creates impacted pathways of dead grass that sprawl across lawns. These pests also chew at the base of stems, causing girdling and the risk of plant death. No garden is safe when these pests are around. The good news is that there are methods to get and keep voles off your property.
Natural Ways To Prevent Voles On Your Property
Controlling voles is not an easy task. These pests establish sprawling nests under yards and are elusive to many conventional pest control strategies. If you are not yet dealing with these pests on your property, however, DIY prevention is an excellent option to keep these ground rodents at bay. Here is how to control voles with a few simple strategies.
- Install a fence around your yard and garden. Make sure this fence extends into the ground, at least a foot.
- Remove woodpiles, sticks, leaves, and other debris from your yard.
- Consider removing bird feeders from your property or investing in rodent-proof ones.
- Trim your grass regularly and keep up with other landscaping needs.
