Ever walked outside to find that your yard torn up? Do you see multiple tunnels and mounds of dirt? If this is a constant issue, you might have voles in your yard. There’s nothing worse than trying day after day to get rid of voles with no luck. Luckily, you don’t have to do it yourself. Fox Pest Control can help.
You might already know for sure that you have a vole problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a vole problem in McAllen.
