Birds are the C.I.A. of insect detective work. Since birds are very intelligent,
scraping up evidence, probing the surfac and locating pests is as easy
as booking a pickpocket. Birds can remember when and where they last captured
scoundrels, such as crane flies, and will return there frequently to make
feathered forces have big appetites, so set up a fast-food seed shop,
a.k.a. birdfeeder, where they can get some grub when theyre not
on the scene of a crime.
real estate like trees and bushes will keep birds working for your division.
Add special attractions for your beaked community like birdbaths and
bells on cats to make birds lives more enjoyable.
birds are outstanding insect detectives, they are terrible pesticide
detectives. Crane fly larvae poisoned with pesticide often wriggle to
the lawns surface and birds gobble them up because they dont
detect any poison. Many pesticides registered for weeds and insects
are poisonous to birds and other wildlife too. So try not to use these
on your property.
