Signs of a Vole Infestation in McAllen, TX

You might already know for sure that you have a vole problem. Here are a couple of the most common signs that a McAllen vole exterminator looks for during an inspection: 


Voles are closely related to hamsters, so they like to have defined pathways to follow. These paths snake their way through fields and nearest their favorite plants to eat. Furrows are typically 2 inches wide and may feature many branches over a wide area.

Burrow Holes

Since they like to live underground, you may see a hole a couple of inches in diameter. These burrow entrances are found in the middle of lawns or near tree roots.


Voles are much more willing to appear in the open than mice. You may even see one scurrying through the grass during the day.

What You Need to Know About Voles in McAllen, TX:

  • Voles are tiny, fast animals that are closely related to lemmings and hamsters.
  • Like moles, voles tunnel through the ground and destroy your yard and garden.
  • On top of being bad for your plants and garden, voles carry diseases like rabies and tularemia through their urine and feces.
  • If you come into physical contact with vole waste, consult a doctor.
