Is it a vole or a mole?

If you’ve got trails of miniature highways running through your yard, chances are, you’ve got a rodent infestation. Identifying whether you’re dealing with a mole or a vole is important for determining how best to tackle the unwelcome guests with a rodent exterminator.

The habits between moles and voles are decidedly different. Both spend time underground, but it’s the moles that spend the most time there – looking for their favorite food: insects and worms. While they aren’t after your garden specifically, the damage they can do hunting their prey can be substantial.

Voles, on the other hand, are herbivores – meaning they’re more likely to be eating your garden and your landscaping. Both moles and voles will use each other’s tunnels interchangeably, making them a double-headache in some cases.
