Apex Pest and Lawn is your Professional Vole Exterminators along the Wasatch Front.
A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter hairy tail, a slightly rounder head, and smaller ears and eyes. There are approximately 70 species of voles; they are sometimes known as meadow mice or field mice in North America.
DO THEY POSE A THREAT?
Voles are active day and night, year-round. You’ll normally find them in areas with dense vegetation. Voles dig many short, shallow burrows and make underground nests of grass, stems, and leaves. Voles make nest in the winter and in the spring it’s easy to see their trails in the lawn.
They do not pose any know health risks to humans or pets, however the can cause significant and expensive damage to landscaping.
WHY DO I HAVE THEM?
No real reason. Voles are native to Colorado and sometimes make their way onto residential and commercial properties throughout the West and into Utah.
HOW WOULD YOU GET RID OF THEM?
Getting rid of voles can be a tricky task as they are elusive creatures and their numbers are large. That’s why our service includes the necessary treatments and follow ups needed, for one fee. Our treatment method consists of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the entire landscape activity. Rodent bait is used and placed directly in the burrow openings and also in tamper resistant stations that are anchored to the ground.
Follow up - A follow up is included to evaluate the success of the baiting and to determine if additional treatments are necessary.
