The best bet with keeping them from digging in the yard is mixing coyote urine in a spray bottle with a little water and spraying the yard. You can get the urine at most hunting/fishing specialty stores. You do have to respray after a rain though.

Squirrels dig holes in lawns because they are looking for or hiding food. If squirrels are looking for food, you can stop them by no longer planting food plants. For example, planting daffodils will prevent squirrels from digging up your yard, since they do not eat daffodils. If this doesn't work, use mesh in your yard.

Maybe you should try putting out corn on the cob feeders. They may be digging looking for food. If thats not an option or desire you could call your local game warden and request they set out traps to catch them. The animal is not hurt and can be released elsewhere.
