Birds are great to listen and watch, but they can cause big lawn damage digging up food. Identifying the damage is not hard. If you see birds and find small holes in the lawn it is likely bird related. This leads to the root of the problem, grubs and insects. These bugs will do greater damage to the yard than the small holes from the birds and while annoying; the birds are doing more good than harm. If you would like to avoid the holes however, you will need to get rid of the pests themselves. Simply apply a pesticide to the lawn and the birds’ food source will diminish, and shortly after so will the holes!
