Indicators that you have lawn bugs
Too many birds can be a sign of lawn bugs
Birds are wonderful guests to our homes and gardens. It’s a great sign you have done something right in your garden. While birds foraging on lawn is natural they can become a pest when they begin digging and making a mess of the lawn.
The presence of birds digging on the lawn can be a sign something is wrong with your lawn. Birds will flock in numbers if there is a huge amount of bugs to feed on. They can be our friend by removing bugs and weeds, but destructive behaviour begins when bugs are in abundance.
Dealing with the bug problem quickly will ease the amount of bird damage.
