Hi all, has any other members had the problem of holes appearing overnight in the vege garden.
They're about 25 to 30mm wide and some go down up to 25cm and they are completely cylindrical, but they seem to be empty. I have dug a few, but nothing there.
They are heaped up like little volcano.
They look like yabbie holes. I've filled them with water many times at once and the water all soaks in, but nothing surfaces. I know yabbies do get in soil but we're not close to a water source.
I thought maybe mole crickets, but as yet haven't been able to find any.
Any other suggestions??
Any change they could be Cicada holes? Only suggesting this as we had similar and are in an area where there are plenty of Cicadas.
Or possibly spider holes? my mother had holes like this around her garden once and there were always 'Orb' spiders in her plants.
Could they be from bandicoots @bergs?
I remember last year @Flo54 was having an issue with bandicoots digging out her plants.
Hello All,I have found out what it is!
African Black Beetle.
Check this site out as it gives you some info on trying to eradicate them before they become plague proportion.
Do you have lawn @bergs? I know that curl grubs can be a big problem and destroy your lawn.
Are you going to use something like this? https://www.bunnings.com.au/yates-500ml-baythroid-laawn-grub-and-garden-insecticide_p2961216
