Just moved to Ellijay and we have the holes showing up. They are 2-3″ deep and 2-3″ perfectly round. They go through the pine straw and down into hard soil. Not noticing any mounding or soil left around the holes. They seem to appear out of nowhere!

    Actually I think it is a bug colony I have those too and looked into it and found what looked like a bunch of spiders

    squirrels. I’ve seen them in action more than once. Those little boogers are either looking for something previously buried or burying new items.

    Yeah, not crayfish. They show up in very wet soil… Raccoon seems likely… Try a havahart trap…. Bait with cat food or marshmallows. Or one of these options:

    My first thought was crayfish (do you have a stream nearby?) but they usually mound. Could be voles.
