Meadow Vole Eating Garden Vegetables: Video — 6 Comments

  1. Several years ago my beet crop was destroyed by Voles. It wasn’t until I started to pull the beets out of the ground that I saw they had been eaten right through the middle. I never saw any activity and the only reason I knew the damage was caused by Voles is because I contacted our local county extension office and they identified the cause. Before your video I didn’t even know what they looked like.

    • Yeah, they definitely do go after roots. They love Jerusalem artichokes and will cache lots of them for future consumption.

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Bob. As much as I hated to lose some of our vegetables, I couldn’t help but be amused and fascinated by these diminutive dynamos!
