    I "think" its a mole... but not seeing the mounds or "trails". But I do see holes all over. Little ones. And one larger one that might be his house?

    Could it be a chipmunk with this much damage?

    A friend suggested a mole AND a skunk working together. Is that common?

    I just aerated and seeded/fertilized recently... so either the seed or holes I plugged has brought on animal. Or animals.

    And its mainly at night... each morning I come out it appears it was busy that night. And the area seems to be spreading.

    In one of the pictures has a larger hole... is this his home?

    That either a skunk or coon looking for grubs. Get rid of the grubs and you will get rid of your problem
