Mysterious Mounds of Dirt????
This is more curiosity that anything... Lately in our yard (and serveral yards around us) we have had a few mounds of dirt show up overnight. We have several theories as to what could be causing them...armadillos, moles, ants, termites? The dirt is really loose and can be raked down rather easily. When we rake it out, there aren't any critters that are trying to escape (i.e. ants or termites). There doesn't seem to be a distinct tunnel like you'd expect with a snake or a gopher. I've never seen an armadillo, but I've seen the blogs from all the people who "love" them so much... Could this be our noctural landscaper? Any ideas? It's not a nusiance, we don't plan to try to poison them or eradicate them in anyway, DH and I are not familiar with the local critters and I was hoping someone here might have some ideas... Thanks!!
PS... Anyone else itching to start digging in the dirt??? hehehe... DH has kept me busy putting up stockade fencing for the last week, I envy those of you that have had time to prepare your planting beds!!
