Those look like mole holes to me...our neighbor hired someone to kill them...apparently that is illegal in my state, but they did it anyway...we have holes all over our acreage, I nearly broke an ankle in one. My husband ran the tractor mower last week, it seemed to help, as our dog is not as berserk to go out & dig around.

BDD, if it were moles, wouldn't there be long raised areas over their tunnels? I'm more inclined to think it's some other sort of rodent.

Perhaps it is illegal to kill them off in some states? But it is not illegal to mow or roll your lawn!

Moles are usually the worse after the Spring thaw. Then the ground is fluffy and no grass to mow. Once you start mowing; especially with the heavier equipment/tractors, then the problem seems to improve.
