It is very common for us to receive calls from concerned homeowners about vole damage this time of year. This is typical vole damage seen in the Spring after
the snow has melted away. Vole damage looks like little trails or tunnels throughout the lawn. These trails are lined with dead grass.
Voles create these tunnel systems under the blanket of snow throughout the winter. As the snow melts, their little kingdoms become uncovered.
Vole damage is temporary. Just rake the affected areas and the grass will come back when your lawn starts to grow again. This year we expect that there will be minimal damage from voles due to the lack of snow.
