My lawn is covered with holes not of my making. There are 2 or 3 every
square foot, and look like something's been digging from the top down.
I suspect birds pecking for worms but I never see them and there are
hardly any squirrels around. Any ideas?
Likely something going for the grubs that are there now. It is a little
late to kill those grubs, but you may want to check with your local county
extension office to find out when and how to best address the problem before
the next crop show up.
Since it appears you have not actually seen what is digging the holes, I
am going to guess skunks who work at night. I have a friendly one in my
neighborhood. So far no people or dogs have been hit, but it sure goes
after the grubs and mice. I happened on it one night and was about three
feet away before I could see that it was a skunk and not the cat I was
expecting. He just looked at me, but not even the beginning of the warning
Could have animals, like skunks, digging at night for grubs. If you
have grubs treat them and the animals will leave your yard allone.
Just saying this since I too had a bad grub problem years ago, and
I've not been visited much by digging animals.
