    One of the lawns I cut has gotten numerous small mounds over the past week and they are definitely not caused by ants. The mounds consist of either small looking pellets or look round and flat almost like dog crap that has been flattened. What are they?

    Provided you post a picture, I will feel better about my response.
    That said, are their a bunch of mounds, say 6 in one yard and widely separated or are the mounds closer together? Also, is your soil real sandy or is it mostly clay based?
    Sandy soil with wide spread mounds means mole crickets to me.
    Clay based soil with larger mounds of greater quantity means at least one generation of scarab grubs have matured and emerged.

    The soil here is clay based. The mounds are of great quantity. Is there a particular product that you recommend?
