in my yard...any ideas? I live in SC. I mowed the lawn yesterday and couldn't get over how many holes there are now. We have had alot of rain this year. What do I have living in my yard? It looks like swiss cheese across my yard. When I first pointed them out, my husband thought maybe it was from roots rotting from a previously removed tree. All the holes are all same...nickel sized round holes.

hi Cat,

Are you sure you didn't have your lawn aerated? They have a machine that rolls over the lawn and plugs hundreds of holes in the soil to let the soil breath. And the plugs are usually about "nickel-size".

If you have random "plugs" of soil in your yard, they look like dirt corks. Then your lawn has been aerated.

Locusts? we had holes all over our yard from them in 2003 & 2004.

I know it is too late, but I thought I would chime in.
