String of raised dirt piles

Asked September 18, 2019, 12:38 PM EDT

These dirt mounds have popped up quickly in my front yard. What are they and what should I do?

It will be helpful to know if the plug or little dimple is in the center (mole) or towards the side (gopher) of the dirt mound. For a small area and relatively few mounds (possibly just 1 animal), I would recommend trapping. Trap style and a little bit of the method differs by species however, so please follow up once you have looked at that feature.
