I woke up to unseasonably warm December day today in NE Ohio (nearly 60 degrees!) and found "something" had dug a hole next to the foundation of the house near the back door. It was not there yesterday. I am adding a link to a picture.
The hole itself is about 1" to 1.5 ". It is not a "neat" hole, it is raised from a lot of loose dirt around the hole. It's kind of hard to tell how much dirt from the picture because a bunch of leaves recently blew there. It reminds me of a large cicada killer hole, but obviously it is not that in December.
BTW, I know to keep the leaves and debris away from the house to deter critters, I had them all raked up but more have come to take their place.
I am just kind of freaked because it's up against the house foundation and I worry about mice getting in every winter.
Is this a mouse hole? What would do this in December, even a warm December day?
Thanks in advance, you have always been so helpful.
