Watch for anthills

 Ants are starting to appear, creating small piles of earth in lawns which will catch the mower blades and smear over the grass. Brush the soil away before you mow - ants aren't really a pest except when they build nests inside containers and disrupt plant roots. You can buy pathogenic nematodes, but don't use commercial antkiller powders designed for paving on a lawn.
