Let’s learn a little bit more about our little rodent friends. Just to see what we’re dealing with here, and why it’s a problem.
Voles on the other hand are herbivores. They are small rodents with small partially visible ears who love to gnaw away at plant roots, stems, and crowns. These rodents also have a taste for the seeds and bulbs of flowering plants. This is normally why they pose such a threat to garden and lawn owners. No plant is safe when a vole is nearby. They also reproduce quickly, with the average female giving birth to several litters a year. So, if you have a few to deal with now, soon there will be too many to handle.

The structural damage to your property means that the plants that grow there.
