Mysterious Piles of Dirt

Asked March 28, 2019, 11:22 AM EDT

So, recently piles of dirt are appearing in my front yard. I live in Southern California and I'm wondering what kind of animal could be doing this. The strange thing about these piles is the fact that there are no holes from which an animal could have entered or exited or just any holes in general. I can't consult any neighbors because we are the only ones with this issue.

Thank you for your question. I suspect those in your county Extension office will be more familiar with your region's burrowing mammals (if that is what is causing this) than will we in Oregon. I suggest you contact them directly:

Good luck!
