Chinch bugs are common lawn pests that can cause the lawn to have significant signs of damage, including large yellow patches of grass that turn brown or an increased amount of bird activity near your lawn.
Chinch bugs are small in size, averaging only about ⅛ to ¼ inches long, and most identifiable by their black bodies with white wings. They are primarily found between spring and early fall, from late May to early October.
To treat a chinch bug infestation, use Jonathan Green Grub & Insect Control on a dry lawn when chinch bugs are present. This will help to kill chinch bugs and other lawn insects found on the surface and deep into the soil of your lawn. Be sure to lightly water in the product after applying, with about ¼ to ½ inches of water to activate the product. You can also use Organic Insect Control to treat chinch bugs, which is an eco-friendly alternative made with a proprietary blend of plant oils to effectively kill and repel insects.
Chinch bugs also tend to thrive in hot, dry climates, so it’s important to maintain a consistent lawn watering schedule, especially in the spring and summer months.
