Moles and Voles Control

Creating a beautiful and well-maintained landscape, park, or sports field is a challenging feat that not only improves your real estate’s value but is also visually impressive to guests and those passing by. Unfortunately, a type of small but persistent pest can create a maze of tunnels and dirt mounds that can disrupt your luscious landscape – moles and voles.

Moles and voles are quite different despite the similarity in name. Schendel Pest Services identifies what’s disrupting your landscape and solves the problem so you again can be proud of your outdoor area. Take back your property from these lawn and garden pests.

No matter the size of your property, we have the perfect plan for you to solve your vole, mole, and other outdoor pest problem. 

What’s the Difference Between Moles and Voles?

Besides their rhyming names, moles and voles look entirely different. These pests create intricate tunnels and dens throughout your landscape where they live and breed. 

The herbivore voles feed on available vegetables and flowers in gardens, and even damage trees. Voles appear similar to field mice and shrews with shorter tails. These small creatures weigh between one to two ounces with brown or gray fur.  

Moles are short and stocky, between 6 to 7 inches in length, a short bare tail with brownish-black fur, a round head, and a pointed snout. One unmissable feature of moles is their large and rounded front feet with large claws used to expertly and fluidly dig through the soil to create tunnels and nesting areas. Moles are insectivores that live their entire life under your sizable open yard, golf course, or park, avoiding humans when they can.

What Attracts Them to Your Property

Both pests are attracted to large open spaces like vast yards, open parks, playing fields, and golf courses. Moles use their large paws to glide through loose sandy soils in search of insects. 

Voles live in colonies with several dens connected to a network of tunnels. Since they do not hibernate, a minor issue with moles and voles can grow into a significant infestation and ruined landscape if left unabated.

Voles attack gardens and devour plants and vegetables that you worked so hard to grow. They also gnaw on young trees and damage flower bulbs.

Will They Attack Humans and Pets?

Moles seek to avoid humans and tend to stay underground. Rather than attacking humans, the damage you can expect are to your yards and fields with their aggressive tunneling.  Moles can create mounds that create a tripping hazard in your lawn.

Voles tend to stay outdoors, unlike field mice who will enter structures. They’ll damage your landscape rather than causing harm to your building or physically attacking humans and pets. These pests are looking for attainable food sources rather than searching for prey.

Leave Your Mole and Vole Pest Problem to the Professionals

Once you see the first sign of a mole or vole, you have no idea how many there can be, how long they have been there, and how extensive the infestation is. Finding each tunnel and its hidden habitat is difficult for someone not thoroughly trained to find and remove these invasive creatures. Attempting to solve your mole or vole pest problem may lead to reinfestation, regrowth of the colony, or potentially harming your property with unapproved chemicals.

Avoid any attempt to take care of these pests on your own. Rely on the trained professionals from Schendel Pest Services at the first sign of disturbed landscape in your lawn, sports field, gardens, or grassy area. We can also offer suggestions to make your property uninviting to moles, voles, and other pests.

    I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the courtesy always displayed when Derrick visits our office and showroom. He is polite and friendly and does his job efficiently. Today he even asked if he might assist us in tuning in our staticy radio we have at our front door. It took him less than a minute to see that we had wires miswired and corrected it. It was a small effort but greatly appreciated. He is a wonderful asset to your staff.
