Voles, also known as Meadow mice, burrow under vegetation in lawns and gardens, girdle forest, landscape and agricultural trees, and damage field crops.  

These small rodents leave pathways in turf that become noticeable in the spring when the snow melts.  

CSU Extension’s Fact Sheet provides information on how to identify and manage voles.
