View Full Version : dragonflies

Does anyone know why dragonflies fly all over a lawn for days after it has been cut? There is this one lawn that I maintain and every time I cut it they are out there flying around for a few days. It seems like it is only this one lawn. I assume they are eating gnats or something? Anyone else ever see this?

Yea, dragonflies catch small flying inscaects with their legs
Pretty cool to watch isn't it.

I also have robins that show up at the same lawns every week and work the area that has just been cut-all the bugs are on the move.
Its almost like they are tame, moving 1-2 ft from the mower

For over a week now I've had 100's of them all over my backyard. Everyone just sits and stares in amazement. Hopefully they are eating all the west nile misquitos.

Enjoy them while you can. They are the good insects.
