Q.

holes all over the lawn and in garden beds

Zone Darlington western australia | Edward.nastasi added on July 17, 2015 | Answered

What is causing holes all over the lawn and in garden beds (not as much) but causing great deal of lawn damage. Holes appear to be torn from above and resemble some very small animal hole - about one inch wide to some much wider holes that do not go anywhere but am sure that some are catacombed around under soil. Please respond - they are driving us nuts Ted

Rodents and snakes are know to dig small round holes and set up residence.
Identifying the actual culprit is the key in controlling or eliminating them.
I have know many gardeners that set up night cameras to properly identify the problem.
Once you know what your dealing with you can decide the best coarse of action whether it is trapping or chemical treatments.
If you have a large infestation it may need to be dealt with by a professional.
