Calgary Pest Control – Voles Impacting Calgary Homes

Our previous blogs have addressed the annoyances of mice and bed bugs – but right now there’s a new kid in town who’s causing quite a stir – the common Vole.  Voles are mouse-like rodents who are also referred to as meadow mice.  Active both during the day and night; these compact, short-tailed pests that are grey to chestnut brown in color (depending on the species) have being prompting homeowners to contact Calgary Pest Control Services for help in removing these destructive creatures.

Unlike mice, Voles tend not to invade homes, but spend their time making numerous shallow burrows in lawns and other vegetative areas.  They can literally destroy a yard by creating an extensive burrow system and by gnawing on tree bark and roots and feeding off grasses, plants and bulbs.  Early spring, when snow is finally melting from Calgary yards, can be a very revealing time – as pest activity that has gone on during the winter months becomes all too visible in the warmer weather.
