The other day I was retrieving some seed trays from a friend (over the fence) when I turned around and saw two large clouds about one meter apart of very small fly's hovering over the lawn
I would like to know what they are and how to stop this as it does seem to happen most years
Are they actually damaging the grass? I wouldn't be too bothered about small flies.
It's the time of year for fungus gnats and other small flying objects - they usually disappear when the weather gets colder - or sometimes on very cold days you'll see them hovering above heaps of manure etc where the air is fractionally warmer.
Ok I see so nothing to worry about then
Thank you Fleurisa and Dove
