Meadow voles – also known as meadow mice or field mice – can cause significant damage to your home landscapes. They’re active year round and will even tunnel through snow. They are mostly herbivores (plant eaters) and feed on a variety of garden and ornamental plants, seeds, and grasses.
Meadow voles are not good climbers and are typically restricted to near ground level. They usually do not enter homes or other buildings.
Typical signs of a vole problem include:
By girdling (gnawing completely around) a tree or roots, meadow voles can kill trees.
Voles need vegetation for protection from the elements and predators. Reducing their cover will help prevent Meadow Voles.
