Since voles are not the only animal pests responsible for runways in lawn and garden areas, they are often confused with
these other pests you'd like to get rid of – namely, moles.
Because both moles and voles are rarely seen, it makes more
sense to base identification on the signs they leave behind,
Moles produce two types of runways in your yard. One runway
runs just beneath the surface. These are feeding tunnels and
appear as raised ridges running across your lawn. The second
type of runway runs deeper and enables the moles to unite the
feeding tunnels in a network. It is the soil excavated from
the deep tunnels that homeowners find on their lawns, piled up
in mounds that resemble little volcanoes. These mounds are a
dead giveaway that your problem is not voles, but moles. Voles
leave no mounds at all behind.
