I have moles taking over the back yard. They seem to move from location to location. Like I do when on vacation!
The front yard has tiny holes all over it approximately 1/4 inch round.( like it was airated) The holes are only in my yard not either neighbors.

To be honest I don't think you have moles because they usually leave larger holes and very obvious tunnels throughout the lawn. Perhaps further observation would reveal the culprit. One possibility is that birds or maybe even a skunk are foraging for insects there -- or someone in spiked shoes has been practicing a sport in your yard?
