Mole Biology: There are six species of moles in North America, and three of these may occur in your yard (Eastern Mole, Hairy-tailed Mole, and Star-nosed Mole). Of these, the Eastern Mole (Scalopus aquaticus) is most common in New York.

 

Moles are about the size of chipmunks (6-8 inches in length) and can weigh three to six ounces.

 

Each year a mole can have one litter of two to six young, depending on the health of the female. Gestation lasts about five to six weeks, which means that you can expect litters anywhere from mid-April through May. Believe it or not, young moles have less than a 50% chance of surviving long enough to reproduce.

 

Moles are insectivores (they eat insects), and they may control some insect outbreaks.

 

However, mole activity can also cause considerable damage to lawns. This damage is usually in the form of tunnels and/or mounds in lawn that can be unsightly, disturb root systems, and provide cover or travel lanes for other small mammals.

Treatment Options

 

Mole Treatment: Your technician will assess the damage and determine a treatment strategy best for your specific situation.

 

May use mechanical scissor, guillotine and or snap style traps in active shallow and/or deep tunnels.

 

Moles prefer worms, grubs and other larvae as a primary food source, so traditional rodent baits are not effective.

 

Services will include trapping methods with follow up services and guarantee to be determined by technician and will be outlined in your service agreement.

About Voles

 

Vole Biology: Favored foods are fresh foliage and flowers in the warm months, seeds and grains in cold months, or even the bark of young plants and trees in the winter. Voles may be very destructive to grain and vegetable crops. Nesting is done is burrows in shallow soil or in thick grass and vegetation, and distinct runways are created above ground as the mice travel and forage. Breeding can be done year round, with the highest activity from March until November, and mating takes place immediately following the birth of a litter. There is an average of around 6 young per litter, and the potential exists for a breeding pair beginning in the spring to result in almost 3000 mice by the fall. There can be up to 10 litters per year, and population explosions result about every 4 years.

 

Identification: Color ranges from dark brown to dark reddish brown, with a lighter grayish belly. The tail is very slightly haired and is much shorter than the body length.

 

The ears are small and covered with hair, distinguishing them easily from the House Mouse. Adults can be up to 6 inches long and they are robust, densely haired animals.

 

Outdoor activity is identified by the distinct runways in grassy areas or turf, along with the damage to plantings in landscaped areas.

 

They are prone to invade lush landscape when their natural areas and grassy fields dry out in the summer.

 

Vole Treatment: Voles are treated utilizing a combination of rodenticides and/or trapping.

 

Voles often occupy mole tunnels and are easily trapped using snap or scissor style traps. Because they will accept traditional rodent baits and their potential high populations, we also utilize rodenticides in locked, secured exterior bait stations.

 

Your technician will assess the damage and determine a treatment strategy best for your specific situation.
