Holes in bare dirt

Asked August 23, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

I have 3 large oaks in m backyard, and therefore no grass, other than the ivies, ferns and ornamentals in beds around the trees. . The rest of the yard is bare dirt . Each morning I find numerous perfectly round "holes" in the dirt about big around as a quarter, and 4 to 6 inches deep. If I rake over these holes and cover them up, the next morning they are there again, larger and deeper. What is living down there???

Good Morning,
For some reason your question ended up being sent to the Clarke County Extension Office in Athens Georgia. I apologize for the error and delay, and recommend you contact your local Orleans Parrish Extension Service. Here is their website and contact information.
Please contact them and I am sure they will be very willing to help you answer your question and solve your mystery.
