Voles do not hibernate and are active both during the day and night. They burrow and have tunnel systems with multiple entrances. Their tunnel entrances are small holes, just about an inch in size. A voles diet consists of seeds, plants, crops, grasses, bark as well as insects and animal remains. Between their tunnel systems and their diets, they can cause lost of damage to lawns, golf courses, crops, orchard and trees. In addition, they can have up to 25 babies every year, which can make a small vole problem become a large problem very quickly.
