I have 100s of these little mounds in my yard. They look like small ant mounds and they are about 1-2" on diameter. I don't think they are fire ant related. I have broadcast fire ant killer on the entire yard and the large fire ant mounds have disappeared for now. But, these little mounds keep popping up. Any idea what might be creating these?

Extra Terrestrial markings so they know where to land their ship during the invasion. You don't have any crops so they used the next best thing. If you looked at your yard from the air with a thermal imaging device you would see that the piles of crap actually spell "Wickie Ooompf Waght Nag Pui" which roughly translates to "Land mothership here".

Maybee that's how the large fire ant mounds start out.

Look like worm castings to me...if they were grubs it would probably be springtime and you'd find dig marks all over the area from raccoons, possums, skunks, etc. that just LOVE grubby-snacks. [lol]

Pretty fucked up worthless looking lawn. Stomp down the mounds, salt the entiree yard, spray gas on it and ignite. Start over. Grow something else. Good luck.

If it's a sort of granular mound (bb size particles) it worm castings-- a very good thing!! Stop poisoning them!!!! If it's grub- you'd have big dead patches. turn over a shovelful and see if you have big fat grubs - or worms.

Demons are digging up to get you. Get your AR and shoot into the ground while wearing Reynolds Wrap around your head. P.S. Save the brass for me. Danny

Well in light of that completely senseless information... It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression "As pretty as an airport". Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort. This is my apology for the obligitory thread hijack.
