    Moles & Voles Facts

    The most significant difference between moles and voles is the type of damage they cause. Moles are insectivores, and their primary diet is earthworms, with a few grubs and insects tossed in as appetizers. They don’t eat plants, and so their landscape carnage is the incidental damage of tunnels and runways dug in lawns while on the never-ending search for more worms. They’re gray to dark brown, about 6 to 7 inches long and most distinguishable by their long noses and paddled, webbed front feet – perfect for tunnel excavation.

    Unlike moles, voles are rodents that look much like mice, only with shorter tails. They’re dark brown, about 5 inches in length and have eyes and ears that you can readily notice. They feed on grass and perennial-flower roots, they’ll eat seeds and bulbs, and especially in winter when other foods are scarce, they’ll even eat the bark of trees and shrubs.
