Re: Some Sort Of Rodents Making Lawn Holes


My back yard is a criss-cross of lumpy lines made by moles/voles/whatever.

Cannot take a step without landing on a soft spot.

It is comforting to know that occasionally, one of my tractor tires may crush an unfortunate tunnel rat.

Re: Some Sort Of Rodents Making Lawn Holes


I have squirrels, moles and chipmunks. Squirrels just make a mess with nuts, mole leave runs and mounds of dirt, chipmunks leave holes.

I quit using grub control because I never figured out if it was safe for my dog. I've only killed one while drinking a beer with a pitchfork in my other hand. Chipmunks I used to trap but that's a full time job.

Thinking of cutting down a hickory tree but these might not hang around any longer.

Looks like gentrification has come to the hickory tree , expect higher property taxes
