When he said black bugs with red stripes I was pretty sure that was right about it being spittle bugs. Little Rock has had an extremely bad problem with both spittle and chinch bugs the last few years. I am about 35 miles north of there and have only had 3 or so cases of chinch bugs over the past 10 years. So far this year I have been called, diagnosed and treated 5 cases. All of them in zoysia. I suppose they have finally moved north. I'm not sure exactly how. Infected sod, lawn mowers of commercial operators??Not sure...
