    Hi All, just found a some holes (pictures attached) in the garden that are a little larger than you average ant hole. They are about 7 to 8mm in diameter. The collar round the hole is quite hard as though its been glued. I poked around in one and there's no activity.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks.

    Mining bees? We used to get a lot of these in our old garden.
