As the snow melts each spring, Vole damage reveals itself revealing all the fun our little rodents had over the last 6 months.  This year the damage has been off the charts in western Wyoming.

Here's what you SHOULD NOT do!

  1. Don't De-Thatch
  2. Don't Power Rake
  3. Don't Reseed

In the spring "Root Growing Window" the  plant either grows deep roots or it repairs damaged roots.  If you power rakr or do anything mechinical to rip and tear on the roots, the plant puts any of its extra stored up food from last season into fixing the root damage.

If you received all five (5) fertilizer applications of the Regular Program or the Four fertilizer applications from the Economy Program PLUS you also took the optional Winterizer Fertilizer you're in luck.  Bluegrass varieties throughout the USA require five applications of nitrogen to "Be All it Can Be"!  High maintenance Kentucky bluegrass requires 5 pounds to 5 ½ pounds of actual Nitrogen / 1000 ft² /season.   In otherwords, the plant will uses the excess energy stored in its root system as carbs from last season to push more blades of grass and your lawn will recover  having all the nibbled down tunnels created by the vole activity, filled in during the middle of your second application this season.

 If your lawn received less than 4 applications last season, it may recover by October only to start to happen all over again in December.
