Holes in the lawn

Asked June 30, 2018, 3:41 PM EDT

At least 20 or more holes in the yard. If you say they are raccoon or skunk looking for grubs how can they dig a perfectly round hole like there is the my lawn?

The usual culprits are skunks, raccoons, moles, and snakes or even bees. Here is a link to a fact sheet on deciding what is digging in your lawn. Another thing you can try is sprinkling corn starch around the holes to see if they are still active and if there are any recognizable tracks in the morning. You can also install an inexpensive critter camera and see if you can catch the culprit. I recommend filling in the holes as soon as you can because they can become dens to a different creature if the original owner has moved on.
