A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter hairy tail, a slightly rounder head, smaller ears and eyes.
The Meadow Vole is an herbivore, feeding mainly on the grasses that are abundant in its environment. The meadow vole can reproduce multiple times each year. Average females have between one and five litters in a year, producing about five pups in each litter. Though meadow voles reproduce very frequently and produce many offspring, they have a relatively short lifespan compared to other mammals.
Absolute Pest Control has two control strategies most commonly used, but we of course can adjust our control methods to the needs of our customer.
If this is the first time you have to deal with this pest problem and it is a very isolated problem, i.e. none of your neighbors have any signs of voles the and there is limited damage of the lawn but you do have holes along drive way sidewalk patio etc. In this case a onetime application of poison bait applied directly into the burrows maybe sufficient.
About 14 days after the application we would ask you to cover the holes from the voles with some dirt, if the holes remain closed we can be certain that they are all dead. If some holes open again you may call us back for one follow-up application at no extra charge.COST: $265 for most city properties.
If the problem is more extensive, we suggest a more preventive approach that has proven very successful over the years in eliminating vole damage to lawns, trees and shrubbery.
As with the onetime service we would bait all the burrows initially to ensure fast control of the population. Then we would install rodent control stations for preventive control. Most commonly we install three stations. The stations baited with a control substance will eliminate any invading voles throughout the year and thus preventing further damage.
The Stations are locked and will be anchored for security. Absolute Pest Control will return before the onset of winter and refill all the stations to ensure that no damage from voles will occur over the winter month.COST: $345.00 included are two exterior bait stations a value of $79.00 and two service visits.
The above descriptions are just samples to give you some idea of cost involved to gain control, and MAINTAIN control of the voles in your yard. Our Technicians however, have the ability to adjust the service details, to exactly what is required for your situations. We don’t believe in Cookie Cutter templates that are suppose to work for every situation. That is why we enable our Technicians to provide you with the service you need.
