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.

  • Ok I see so nothing to worry about then 

    Thank you Fleurisa and Dove
