I just thought of something. Do many of you live where people are obsessed with perfect lawns and hire companies to spread whatever it is that require
the little signs that say. "caution, spraying, do not allow children or pets to walk on for 24 hours"? I do. I hate that stuff. Why spray crap that
renders your yard unsafe to walk on for twenty four hours? I am not sure if it is weed killer or pesticide they use or a mix of both. I don't use
that junk and have interesting bugs you can't really see anywhere else in the neighborhood, so I also have kids come over to see the bugs. I have
birds in the hot summer months and bats who eat the bugs. I have clover and dandelions and thistles that I have to clear by hand. But my lawn looks
as good as anybody else's around here and possibly better, if you don't minds some clover mixed in with the grass.
Anyway I can't help wondering if the mass suburbanite obsession with perfect lawns is starving out the insect eating birds and the weed spraying is
also making the seed and berry eating birds sick or reluctant to put in a showing. Those chemicals stink. I won't go outside after that junk is
sprayed around here.
