  • How to get rid of ant hills in my yard?

    But it is probably not ants, it just looks like that. In a place where nothing grows, there are lots of little holes that look like ant hills, except no hills, just holes drilled only down, and where they get the dirt from is distributed further away.

    But I never see a single ant or any other insect anywhere near it!

    I dug up an place with nothing I can see beneath it either. I guess I have to go out at night to see if there is anything there.

    I want to get rid of this, and put better dirt there, but since I don't know what it is, I can't find the best way to stop it.

    Any ideas?

    Could it be a critter of some sort? I know that here in Montana we have a huge problem with prairie dogs or voles. They dig holes everywhere and the dirt makes a pile alongside the hole. Some sort of pepper spray might help this.

    are you sure they aren't earthworm holes?
    Maybe some other bug, or maybe the dug up dirt is blowing away?
