    Voles eat shrub roots. Whereas moles usually make raised lumps in lawn, with voles it will look more like cracks or fissures. Then, check with a garden supply company as how to get rid of them.

    Sounds like voles. Trap them with peanut butter and small mouse traps

      Are they around the same size as a mouse? For some reason, I imagined them to be bigger!

    No they are small but mighty when it comes to chewing things up. Kinda look like a black mouse.
