keep in mind.

It has been 80 degrees all week. Last week it was 75 degrees all week and the lows are in the 50s. I wiped out my short already.

Yes, they would make a series of holes in that kind of pattern, however I do not believe that cicada killers will dig in established turf, as it appears in the pictures. They need a patch of bare ground (even if it is the size of a quarter) to start digging in.

Also, that mud tube shown in the second picture does not appear to be related to cicada killers.

Im not sure about that mud tube but the mounds look similar to mining bees.

I'm split.

I was reading up on bees and They like sandy soil for the nest. that part of the lawn seems very sandy. The fact that this is happening in sandy part of the soil makes me lean toward bees. Crickets wouldn't discriminate on soil would they? one way or the other I'm going to let it go and see what comes of it.

I had originally thought it was digger wasps but did not say so because of the pic of the tube you had....

I just got an update from Cornell U. and I believe you have plasterer bees (Colletes inaequalis)
