Saving Your Lawn from Destruction

Chinch bugs feed off the sap that is at the root of blades of St. Augustine grass. When chinch bugs begin to establish themselves in your yard, you will notice brown spots forming in the grass. After the bugs begin to feed, it may be too late. After a chinch bug infestation, it can be very difficult, if not impossible to recover your grass.

Things to know about chinch bugs include:

  • Their activity slows in the winter
  • Most destructive in the spring and summer months
  • Causing dead or dying patches of grass
  • Millions of dollars a year in treatments and sod replacement in Florida

These bugs tend to live in the thatch of the lawn, which is the layer of dead plant material that is found between the grass and the soil under your lawn. You can help prevent chinch bug infestations by preventing thatch buildup with regular mowing, watering, aeration, and fertilizing your lawn. The other way to prevent your lawn from being destroyed is to treat the problem right away.

Inspecting the Yard for Chinch Bugs

Chinch bugs can move in quickly and cause serious damage to your lawn. The best thing you can do is to identify the problem early and call for bug control in Auburndale as soon as you notice a problem. In the spring and summer months, when the bugs are most active, it is important to inspect your lawn weekly for any signs that the grass is turning brown.

Chinch bugs are often found in:

  • High sun areas
  • Along curbs
  • Beside driveways
  • Where the grass meets the sidewalk

Brown spots can have many causes, such as disease and lack of sufficient watering. If you see a brown spot, you can part the grass at the place where it is discolored and look for signs of mature chinch bugs. The best way to know for sure is to have a professional inspect your lawn for chinch bugs. We can inspect the lawn to identify the pests and recommend the most effective way to get rid of them.
