Yellow Jacket Nest – What Dug It Up?

Q: We had a yellow jacket nest in our back yard. Something dug up the nest and left a three inch hole there. Any idea what would do that?

A: I’ll give four guesses: raccoon, fox, armadillo, or skunk. All are known to dig up nests when they are full of brood in autumn. There’s no need to do anything except fill the hole with dirt.
