Keep­ing grass short leaves few hid­ing places for smaller mi­cro­scopic pests, such as par­a­sitic worm eggs, which don’t sur­vive well when ex­posed to UV light rays. It also means that the area is a lit­tle more ex­posed and less wel­com­ing to larger preda­tors. Don’t de­nude the run, but keep­ing some of the grass and scrub in check will help to con­trol pests and preda­tors on a num­ber of counts.
