Voles Are Damaging to Your Landscaping
If you notice browning top leaves on your shrubs and dead grass spots on the lawn, you may have unwanted tenants called voles. They are mouse-like rodents that are hard to discover as they tunnel underground to damage the roots and vegetation of your perennial plants; moreover, their presence sends invitations to more unwanted predators like coyotes, weasels and snakes. If left unattended, infested property may become a survival challenge for smaller pets.
Moles and Shrews Are Bothersome
Moles appear similar to voles, except they have pointed snouts and oversized teeth to aid in their underground tunneling excavations. Grubs, beetles and earthworms are favorites on their menu. The small mousey shrew reuses tunnels left behind by moles and voles, and they may enter and take up residence in buildings as well. Shrews eat insects, slugs, seeds and the delicate roots of your expensive perennial plants.
