Lawn Pest

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. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Ok I see so nothing to worry about then 

    Thank you Fleurisa and Dove
