Chinch bugs

Chinch bugs feed by sucking sap from grass stem and foliage. They tend to favor shaded areas first. Damage starts as small, yellow or brown discolored areas. These areas expand in size as the insect population increases. Generally, control measures are needed during the summer generation only. Best control results when the entire lawn is treated.
