|I recently purchased a home in Liberty county Texas. These mounds started appearing in my yard late last summer. Can someone tell me what they are? There is no insect or any living thing evident around them or after knocking over. |

|could be crayfish--crawdads---mudbugs, whatever ya'all call 'em down there! I call them crawdads. |

|Yep! Crawfish hole. When they dig their holes, they bring the mud up and build those little chimneys. |

|Thank you very much. I would never have guessed crawfish. My yard in Michigan has 4 feet of snow. Can't wait to move!|

|We have these all over our bottomland. I wish I knew a way to catch all the crawdads. We could have dinner!|

|I'm just relieved they aren't termites. When I googled dirt mounds - that is what comes up. I doubt a crawdad is going to eat my new house. I love this site. Thank you for your vision and drive to make it all happen.|

Not to worry on this front: termites don't like the light of day.
You will only see the "evidence", wood full of pinholes.
At our ranchiito we do NOT keep bees.
They and other critters grace us with their presence, and we provide for their need to the best of our abilities.
