Holes in the Lawn

Asked July 10, 2017, 12:21 PM EDT

Dear Experts, Can you tell us what is causing the holes on the edges of our lawn? I have attached pictures. We have no idea how to stop this problem. Do you have any advice? Thanks,

Howard County Maryland

This looks like a hole made by a cicada killer wasp. They are beneficial as they keep the cicada population down. Here is more information about them on our website
