As snow melts in spring, it’s not uncommon to spot this type of lawn damage. These aren’t the lawn equivalent of crop circles; they’re pathways created by voles, which are small rodents. These critters chew their way through grass and then literally beat a path through those areas. Hidden beneath snow, voles roam freely across lawns in open areas. After snow melts, they retreat to brush and long grass, cover that hides them from predators like hawks and cats. Fill in vole trails with quality potting soil or compost. Grass should mend itself. Before snow arrives, treat areas prone to vole activity with castor oil to help repel these munchers.
