Moles And Voles Bring Damages To KS Properties
If you are looking outside your window and seeing golf ball sized holes, tunnels across the yard, mounds of grass and dirt or disrupted plant roots, you may be victim to a mole or vole infestation. Both of these lawn pests can be detrimental to your landscape and not to mention the cost of repairing and replacing expensive landscaping. But since these pests are hard to avoid all together, it is important to at least be aware of moles and voles so you can find them and get rid of them, fast!
Identify moles and voles in Kansas
Moles are small with long narrow snouts, tiny eyes and very powerful front claws for digging in the dirt. Many people assume that moles are rodents but in fact they are considered insectivores. Voles on the other hand, which are rodents, look a lot like mice but have a blunt nose and more stout body. They appear quite different but they both cause their fair share of problems on properties across Kansas.
Damages they cause
Moles are most known for digging tunnels underground in order to look for earthworms to feed on. They can dig up to 100 feet a day which can clearly cause a lot of damage to your grass and landscape in very little time. Voles are more into eating the plants and vegetation on your property. And what’s worse, they are prolific breeders which means they multiply fast! Damage happens fast with both of these pests.
