bugs in the lawn
10 Months ago I purchased an older home that used to be a rental. The lawn was in horrible condition, lots of weeds and brown dead areas. Lots of water, overseeding and weed pulling and it is now reasonably presentable. However, now I find when I walk on the lawn, particularly in shadier areas, I seem to disturb a cloud of white flying bugs. They are fairly small and remind me of dandelion seeds blowing in the wind. They don't seem to be disturbing my ornamentals very much, mostly just the lawn. Can you tell me what they are and do I need to take any steps to get rid of them or just let nature take care of it. They are rather a pain, particularly when I'm trying to work in the hosta area. Thank you for any help.
