Moles and voles are common garden pests that can cause damage to lawns and landscapes. Moles are burrowing mammals with specialized limbs for digging, creating extensive tunnel systems as they search for insects and earthworms. While they primarily feed on soil-dwelling pests, their tunnels can disrupt plant roots and lead to unsightly mounds. Voles, on the other hand, are small rodents that gnaw on the bark and roots of plants, often causing significant damage to gardens and orchards. Understanding their habits is crucial for effective control. Physical barriers, repellents, and traps are commonly used to manage these pests. Regular lawn maintenance and reducing attractive habitats can also contribute to a more pest-resistant outdoor space. Professional pest control services can provide tailored solutions for addressing mole and vole infestations, ensuring the health and aesthetics of your garden.

Moles Vs. Voles


Moles are solitary creatures that prefer to live in moist soil. They construct feeding tunnels and nesting burrows in dry, warmer soil under trees or solid structures. They are known for their raised tunnel system in lawns, which can be unsightly and cause damage to the roots of plants.


Voles have underground tunnel systems and prefer areas with heavy ground cover, such as natural environments, orchards, fields, and gardens. They produce more offspring than moles and breed throughout the year. Voles have a high reproductive potential, and their populations tend to peak every 2 to 5 years. They can cause damage to garden plants, including vegetables and fruit trees.
