When mowing your lawn, avoid mowing the grass too short. If you leave your grass a bit longer, the roots can grow deeper. This results in a lawn that is stronger and less likely to dry out. If the grass is too short, it produces shallow roots and that leads to a lawn with brown spots and dried-out patches.

In fact, beneficial insects are more likely to die than pests if you spray these types of pesticides. As the population of “good” bugs dwindles, your garden may become overrun with pests. Your problem will only get worse and you will find yourself using more pesticides.
