critter in lawn

Asked July 19, 2018, 1:40 PM EDT

What can I do to eliminate a critter who is tunneling in my lawn? The lawn is slightly raised above the tunnel and is soft and sponge-like. I've noticed a couple of different entry or exit holes approx. 1-2 inches in diameter.

What you are most likely dealing with is moles (eastern moles). They eat worms and grubs and other insects but can damage lawn in the process. Check out the following links for additional information and control methods:
