The Meadow Vole can adapt to human environments easily and usually by choice. In human environments Meadow Voles can adapt easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Urban landscapes provide attractive feeding areas, such as flower gardens, healthy green lawns, and vegetable gardens. Meadow Voles are often confused with Eastern Moles just because they have similar names and biological habits. Meadow Voles are herbivores, which means that they eat only plant matter. Eastern Moles are insectivores, which means that they eat insects. Their biological physical features are very distinguishable and when side by side the two species cannot be confused. Evidence that Meadow Voles are present in your lawn or landscape is when plants start to die in rows and the root structure is missing or your grass is eaten down to the root with visible surface trails. These urban feeding areas also have close or nearby shelters that the Meadow Vole can build a chamber under to sleep in or raise a family. Any side walk, stone wall, stepping stone, log pile, or just an old rotting stump will provide enough cover for their chamber. Landscapes that have low growing plants or ground cover plants are favorable habits that the Meadow Vole will thrive in.
There is a science to Meadow Vole removal. Trap and pesticide placement is the key to effective Meadow Vole removal. Knowing their biological habits and the use of sub-surface snap traps and pesticide bait stations will solve or control most vole problems. Intensive trapping or placing pesticide bait stations in a landscape for 2 to 3 weeks straight is our method along with pesticide bait stations through the season. Typical capture and removal rates in yards are anywhere from 6 – 40 Meadow Voles.
