The Vigorous Vole

Mary D. MartinIn Eastern Idaho this year, we have been inundated with an overabundance of voles in the fields, pastures and yards. Their population was so numerous that I was actually seeing them in broad daylight. Because of their excessive numbers this year, I thought they should inspire me to something, so this little jiggle is what transpired. A word to the wise for others with vole problems, keep grass killed from the base of young trees this summer; in return the voles will be less likely to eat the tender bark off your trees next winter. A girdled tree will die.

 

The Vigorous Vole

It’s a little gray vole.

Nope, not a mole.
