holes in front yard and field
Hi, I am trying to figure out what has made hundreds of small holes in our front yard and front and back fields. I talked to the forestry person and he said it would prob. be moles or shrew. I was told to contact PA State Extension for York County.
York County Pennsylvania
This could be from crows or grackles probing for white grubs (beetle larvae) or possibly nightcrawlers. It is actually aerating the soil, which is a good thing.
That big of a hole is birds?
Crows can make nice holes in turf. You can check in the worst area for grubs. Cut back 3 sides of a square foot so that it peels back and dig down into the soil. Grubs may be down a few inches.
