Animal Diggings Holes In Lawn

Most Lawn Digging is Caused by Armadillo or Moles
Armadillos dig 2 types of holes. They create burrows to shelter themselves from the hot sun during the day. And they dig shallow, conical holes as they graze for grubs. Wildlife Patrol does not currently trap for moles.

Armadillo burrows are all large enough for a person to easily stick their hand into.  Blindly sticking your hand into a hole, however, is a very bad idea - as snakes love to move into old dillow burrows.  If you come across an armadillo burrow on your property, the first thing to do is to see if the hole is active.  Do this by filling the hole back up with soil.  If the hole has been abandoned, it will stay shut.  If its an active burrow, the hole will be redug over the next few days. If the digging is troublesome, your best bet is to trap for the critters.


Armadillos inhabit a home range of about 6-8 residential yards and have many burrows throughout this range.  They make dig and use many burrows.  Consequently the animal will probably not be in 'your' burrow.  And it may not return for a few days.

Armadillos eat insects in the earth. They are nocturnal animals that put their nose down to the ground and sniff out their food.
