vole

Common throughout Europe rodent with a body length between 12 and 24 centimeters (also Schermaus, Mollmaus, dry rat, Erdratte). The family also includes the field mouse, which, however, plays no role in viticulture. The vole lives underground in corridors up to one meter deep in meadows, gardens and farmland. It also gnaws the roots and root rod from vines, resulting in bad sprouting, sudden wilting of the leaves leading to death. The population density is very high, so the damage can be considerable. The pest is combated with traps or the creation of colonization places of natural antagonists such as weasels and other small mammals. See also below Vine enemies,
