Voles are ground-dwelling rodents measuring up to seven inches long. This small creature is considered an expert in making underground tunnels that extend quite a long distance.
Voles can also create such tunnels under the grass. They can create problems for your garden, lawn, kitchen garden, and fruit-bearing plants as they eat almost all kinds of vegetation. Voles stay active throughout the year.
They can breed fast and young voles will foray into vegetation and fruits as soon as they grow up. Thus, your garden plants and fruits in the trees run the risk of being eaten away by these little creatures.
If their numbers grow, this directly means they require more food. You have to take proactive measures to control their population. You can call Rove Pest Control agency for professional assistance.
Voles are primarily active during the winter season. But they can create havoc throughout the year. During the cold season, voles need more food to consume to remain warm. As a result, your garden may sustain greater damage in winter than in summer.
You must get rid of voles in your home area and garden as soon as possible.
Here are five steps that you should take to eradicate voles from your premises:
Use Live Traps: Trapping voles is one of the steps that you should take to eradicate them. They can be trapped and released in nearby forests.
Create Earthen Barrier: Voles can be prevented from attacking your garden by creating an earthen barrier. Make the earthen wall tall enough to prevent voles from climbing it.
Don’t Throw Vegetables And Fruits: You should not throw peels or other parts of fruits after cutting or slicing them. Voles turn active at night and any fruit or vegetable will attract them. Always use a bin and keep it inside your room with all doors properly closed to prevent the entry of voles.
You Can Poison them: Voles can be eradicated by poisoning them. You can put some poisoned fruits or vegetables for this purpose. Once they eat them, they will die. It is an extreme step and can turn fatal in case of any mistake from your side.
If you are fed up with voles or any other pest, seek professional help. Don’t resort to poisoning them, as it can be harmful to human beings, too.
Voles are considered one of the most destructive kinds of garden pests. They can spoil your kitchen garden and eat the fruits of plants growing there. If you don’t control their movement, they can spoil your entire kitchen garden in no time.
The main problem with voles is the presence of their long underground tunnels. You cannot destroy these underground tunnels. Call a pest control expert who has the experience, expertise, chemicals, and other scientific equipment to destroy these tunnels. Since their food demand grows in the winter, you should stay proactive in the winter months. Call a pest control agency to know more and get rid of them.
