Mole And Vole Identification
What are moles and voles?
Moles are small mammals that have long narrow snouts, small eyes, rounded bodies and front claws that they use for digging and tunneling. A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter hairy tail, a slightly rounder head and smaller ears and eyes. There are approximately 70 species of voles; they are sometimes known as meadow mice or field mice in North America. Both moles and voles are common in Denver, Fort Collins and throughout Colorado.
Are they dangerous?
They do not pose any known health risks to humans or pets; however, they can cause significant and expensive damage to landscaping.
So why do I have them?
No real reason. Moles and voles are native to Colorado and sometimes make their way onto residential and commercial properties.
How do you get rid of them?
Getting rid of moles and voles can be a tricky task as they are elusive creatures and their numbers are large. That's why our wildlife control service includes the necessary treatments and follow-ups needed, for one fee. Our treatment method consists of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the entire landscape activity. Rodent bait is used and placed directly in the burrow openings and also in tamper resistant stations that are anchored to the ground.
Follow-up - A follow-up is included to evaluate the success of the baiting and to determine if additional treatments are necessary.
Is the treatment safe?
EnviroPest uses the least amount of material possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible.

Our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken before performing your service.
