A vole infestation on your property can mean a host of major problems. Indoors, voles can chew through structures such as walls, wires, and cabinetry and spread diseases such as babesiosis, Hantavirus, and salmonella. Outdoors, voles will eat roots and bulbs from most types of garden plants, causing major devastation for home yards, commercial properties, and farms alike. When choosing a solution for your vole problem, you want to pick a product that works as advertised without causing auxiliary damage to your property or those on it. Eco-friendly and highly-effective VoleX™ is the perfect product for you. Learn more about the many benefits of vole control and prevention with VoleX™ below.
What Are Voles? Why Are They Bad for Your Property?
Voles are small, mouse-like rodents found in both North America and Eurasia. Like mice, voles are omnivorous. Their preferred sources of food are small plants and plant bulbs, making them a particular problem in outdoor environments such as gardens and farms. Voles will consume the succulent root systems of plants and burrow under plants or ground cover to eat away at roots until the plant itself is dead. Voles are adept burrowers and tunnelers, which means they can access plants without easily being noticed.
Voles can also bring a number of hazards to indoor spaces. Though these rodents do not typically make their homes indoors, they do often burrow and feed under porches and in sheds, garages, and greenhouses. Not only do voles pose structural risks to these buildings – they also pose health risks to those within them. Voles can carry and transmit a number of diseases, including babesiosis, Hantavirus, and salmonella, They can also harbor disease-carrying ticks.
Controlling and Preventing Voles
When a vole infestation strikes your property, you want to prepared with a solution that not only takes care of voles, but also keeps your property safe in the process. As vole infestations commonly occur outdoors near trees and plants, it’s important to pick a vole control solution that is not damaging to the soil or the flora that grow in it. Of course, you’ll also want to settle on a solution that actually works, preferably both in the areas of control and prevention. VoleX™ is that solution.

Using VoleX™ on Your Property
To use VoleX™ on your property, first, locate vole runs or other areas where you believe voles may be present. Make 1-inch holes every 8-10 inches and place the recommended amount of VoleX™ (½ – ⅓ oz. or 10 – 15 gm. Or ⅔ – 1 tbsp. Per hole) into each hole. Wrap in pellets in cling film if you believe they may be exposed to moisture, as exposure to moisture can reduce effectiveness.
