|Earthworms leave quarter inch holes in lawns not 2-3" holes. The problem is more likely voles or possibly raccoons have been digging for grubs or squirrels for buried nuts. I'd fill in the holes by knowing the mounds down (use a 6' long 2X4 and scrape it over the top of your lawn). Hope you find who is responsible - I'm intrigued!
