Holes in my yard.
I'm finding holes in my yard close to a mimosa tree and close to a large cedar/fir. Some are barely dug in and others are deeper. Most are about the diameter of a silver dollar and one I found was large enough to stick the toe of my shoe in. Nowhere else in the yard is bothered except these two places. I'm thinking chipmunks but not sure. How can I determine what is doing the digging and how can I stop them. Thanks for any help.
I actually know that some gardeners set up wildlife cameras to make an id of pests bothering a garden.
It very well could be Chipmunks or Gophers.
Snakes can also leave holes of this size in the soil.
You can try baiting live traps near the base of the tree.
