Hi... I'm trying to figure out what is invading my yard. I haven't seen these insects, but they
leave what looks like a small pile of oval shaped mud balls, pushed up out of the ground,
sort of like a tiny gopher mound. The mud balls are perhaps 1/8" in size, stuck together
in a little pile up to an inch in size. These little things are all over my yard and planters.
Had a termite inspector out to look, he didn't know what they were, but he said they
weren't subterranean termites. I've treated the lawn by sprinkling granulated 1% Dursban,
this apparently had no effect. Does anyone have a clue? Please email RobertM782@aol.com,
and thanks a bunch for any info! -Robert
