This last week holes have appeared in my front lawn. No soil on top of the holes, just the grass being tufted out and what looks like someone's finger has scooped out underneath. I must have over a hundred plus of these now. At first Imthought that it was a hedgehog looking for food, but now it may be birds looking for leather jackets, although I really don't have any evidence of either. Anyone got any ideas?

    Another trick I've read about is to lay a bin bag out on the lawn overnight on the worst affected areas . The grubs will come to the surface and next morning you can remove it and dispose of them.

    I suppose it would be a bit tedious Christopher but I've never tried it - just something I read about. I have loads of birds foraging around on the lawn so don't think I'ld use the chemical method.

    Hi there

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll give the bin bag a try first and see what comes up. I'll let you know what happens.
