What’s Making Pits in My Lawn?

Lawn Pest Control | November 13, 2017

What's Making Pits in My Lawn

Most of the time when you have pit in your lawn it is the past tunneling of a rodent – gopher of vole – that has collapsed. Pits around your lawn, trees, patios, and even foundations may not be the result of gophers or voles. They might be from a large wasp known as the Cicada Killer.

Cicada Killers are “Digger” Wasps

It is not just the cicada killer that digs and causes pits. There are many species bees and wasps that all dig burrows. For the most part, these are not an issue except when they occur in large numbers in a small area. The damage that these wasp and bees can cause can be very expensive. If it is just your lawn they have damaged, consider yourself lucky as their burrows are well known to damage patio supports, foundation supports, and other structural supports that meet the ground.

Cicada Killers or Native Bees

Most everyone is concerned over native bees but the difference between cicada killers, sand loving wasps, and other digging wasps and native bees is that native bees are usually very small, and their burrows are tiny. They also tend to make their burrows in undisturbed locations such as under shrubs. These are also solitary bees and not aggressive like honey bees can be. In short, a pest control specialist can target the wasps without damaging the bees.
