My lawn is absolutely ruined with the birds pecking like crazy on it. At first I ignored and left nature to take its course as the birds are obviously after some sort of Grub but at the same time I felt they were aerating the soil as there are now lots of tiny holes all over it. But it is getting out of hand and is now looking a mess. I have purchased 'Provado Lawn Grub Killer'. The instructions are quite simple but I have seen these 'Chafer Grubs' in my borders if I have been digging, so its one thing applying the treatment to the lawn but surely the grubs will just come back to the lawn if they are in borders. Does anyone have any further suggestions as this stuff is quite expensive so I dont want to have to be buying all the time. I have read something about washing up liquid but dont know if this would work or cause further damage. All suggestions very welcome.
