A digger is any outside underground animal that creates their home by digging. 

Some diggers, such as gophers, can create anywhere from 10-30 mounds of dirt a month with no visible holes or entrances. Such mounds, underground hollows and burrows are hazardous to people and animals, they can cause ankle sprains and other leg injury, as well as cause costly ground damage.

Diggers are a menace to lawns and vegetation. They leave trails, mounds of dirt, holes, and destroyed root systems. When they dig their tunnels next to or underneath a building or structure, they can seriously weaken the strength of it. They disrupt and break underground utility pipes and cables.
