Rodents can cause damage to your home and yard. Rats and mice are more likely to enter your home to acquire food, while voles will create unsightly tunnels in your lawn and garden areas.
Voles are 3 to 8 inches long with grayish brown fur and short tails. They are sometimes confused with moles; however, voles have different eyes, feet and ears. Moles appear to be lacking eyes and ears, but they have large feet that are close to their bodies. If you see a vole, then its eyes, ears and feet will be similar to a field mouse. In addition, their underground burrows will mimic a tree shape if you’re able to view your yard’s damage from the upper level of your home.

Damaged wires can also create a fire. The pests destroy wood, sheetrock and insulation. Rats can even weaken your home’s foundation as they dig tunnels underneath the cement base.
