    I live in Eastern PA. I have a customer's lawn that is being torn up by she thinks an animal.Something is digging up the grass and burrowing under leaving holes. She has a lot of dead patches of grass and the grass peels up like moss. Any ideas what could be doing the damage? Any help would be appreciated!

    Do a search with my name find the thread and look at the pictures and see if it looks like what you have if it is then you may have skunks looking for grubs at night, they really tear up a lawn overnight, it shouldn't take that long seeing how i haven't started to may threads.

    Most likely grubs and the skunks are digging up looking for them. Try looking under the grass ( use a small trowel to peel back)see if you can find a few if so then apply grub killer fast before your customers lawn is gone.
