Welcome to Vole King.  Vole King was created from over 7 years of trial and error of many prototypes to stop voles from attacking plants in field, crop, and home.  Scott Patten, the owner, grew up in Apex, NC, and spent all of his time outdoors.  Scott graduated from N.C. State University with degrees in horticulture and agri-business.  Upon graduating, he started his own landscape company, Plantenders.  He quickly discovered that voles were a  huge problem, silently attacking clients' turf and shrub beds.  Little did he know, one afternoon while visiting his childhood friends' father's expansive shade garden, his life would change forever.  Scott was shown a hardware cloth basket his friend, Zolt, created to prevent vole damage in his garden.
Happy Clients

Zolt held up the basket and said, "if you can ever figure out how to make these easier, your life will change.”  Scott couldn't stop thinking about it, and spent years researching numerous materials and products to solve this problem. How do you stop this small little “field mouse” from eating all these roots and crowns?  What he found was that everything available to homeowners was only temporary.  Scott wanted something that worked from the start, and lasted throughout the life of the plant.  All existing options were expensive, repetitive, labor intensive, and/or only effective for a short period of time. 

Scott had found that a metal cage was the only sure fire method to keep voles out for good, but that was much easier said than done.  Metal baskets from hardware cloth and other wire are very sharp, require heavy cutting, are difficult to bend, and take a long time to assemble.  Years of frustration finally ended with the creation of Vole King!  Vole King is affordable, light weight, single application, protects the entire root ball and crown, and is very easy to install. 

We have now developed numerous sizes of the roll up baskets, developed a bed liner for under sod/landscape bed installation, created tree wrap trunk protection for above ground rodent control, and a new green series raised pot for heavy-duty protection.  We continue to actively develop new products to protect your landscape from burrowing rodent damage, without introducing toxins into the environment, allowing plants and animals to live in harmony.  Thank you for trusting us to help you protect your landscape investment!
