Vole Damage

Those random tracks through the grass? Those are pathways left by voles during their winter adventures on the Cedar Bluff lawn. The biggest snowbanks seem to attract the voles who eat their way through the sod and set up shop for the winter under a cozy drift of snow.

This set of tracks almost looks like their Main Street. Maybe there was a barber shop and a post office. Anyway, now that the sun is melting the snow, the voles have had to pack up their rollabouts and truck off to somewhere else.

Can't you just see them, trailing through their little migration airport, saying, "Wow, that was a fun time. We had lots of good sod to eat and the snow was fantastic!"
