Birds eating lawn seed before it can germinate

After a treatment with granular weed and feed, my lush green lawn all but completely died off! That was back in spring. I have top dressed and spread lawn seed numerous times since but not getting very far...birds (doves) eat the seed before it can germinate. I have tried 'humming tape' but they soon came back. I'm running out of time to get my lawn up and running before winter

Answer: If birds are eating all your lawn seed you might need to try netting the area to exclude them. If you are reseeding a large area you might need to do a portion of the lawn at a time. Net of one area until the grass has established then move the net to another area, keep doing this until your lawn is completely reseeded. If you can’t get it all sown before winter, leave it fallow until spring then clean up any weeds in the remaining areas with Yate’s Zero Weedkiller before sowing the seed.
