Holes are appearing throughout my lawn (see picture). There isn’t the typical mole-hill around the hole, and I don’t see anything inside it.
I’m a bit surprised because the soil in my garden is very clayish? i was thinking perhaps something like moles or some kind of rodent?
thank you for your help and i’d appreciate a solution if it is indeed an animal, how can i git rid of itMay 10, 2023 at 9:54 am ReplylenniePrivate messageGreenhorn
Hi I think small rodents like mice or field mice make these kinds of holes.
Have you tried following the hle to see if it is deep?May 15, 2023 at 2:56 pm ReplyCarolPrivate messageGreen Thumb (moderator)
I’m thinking of the same culprit – rodents. They’re usually present when there’s a compost for food leftovers. Is it the case? If yes, make sure compost is well covered or instead of composting food leftovers, opt for raw plant matter. This should not attract them in your garden.
