So what makes the holes in the ground??
I'm noticing a good number of holes in the clay earth (otherwise known as 'my yard').
So I understand that Voles/Moles dig tunnels, but is that it? Aren't there other critters that dig tunnels.
These are basically holes that are slightly larger around than a golf ball. There isn't one of those tell tale tunnel trails that travel along just under the turf... I've seen those before, but not in my yard. The hole seems to go more or less straight into the earth.
Some of the holes are a bit bigger, maybe even 3x bigger than those golf ball holes.
So here are the questions:
1. What are the probable species that are doing this? (I'm in Holston Hills)
2. Does the digging cause any sort of havoc ... I mean, what sort of damage can the digging do? I haven't noticed any problem with it.
3. So, in looking at the holes I can't see where the animals are putting the excess dirt. There is no mound of dirt, nor does any dirt seem to be slung anywhere. So how do they do it? Do they have the strength to simply crush the earth out of the way??
I don't recall any burrowing animal issues in Florida.. I've been in Tn for a year now.
