Try Bifenthrin and Carbaryl 4L (Sevin). Clinch bugs are now getting to SC. According to Ric, Sevin is the first line. However I'm wondering if the stuff we have now is as strong as the old stuff. Anyone know or has used Sevin alone? Have not needed to use just yet, but looking into the prevention for clinch bugs that are supposed to be in SC according to the John Deere guy. But I've seen Take All Root Rot fungus which looks a lot like Clinch Bug damage.

Seven has no residual properties. Since it is the nymphs not the adults that damage st Aug grass u have to have a systemic for them

Way to early for chinch bug damage after the first heavy rains after to 10th of June the babies will start hatching out. U want to kill as many adults to limit the nymphs

The rate for chinch bugs is higher than for grubs, I use the bifen + imadicloprid mix at both high rates. I might be lucky because I haven't had too many problems with Chinch Bugs.

Monday I start with Arena on most all my lawns. I hate the cost but I am in the heart of Grub Country. Arena package costs more than Alott but goes far. I am looking at $ 160 per acre cost after taxes etc compared to Alott $ 180.

In Edit: Sugarcane Grubs are Resistant to imadicloprid.

Arena saved my Butt last year. I used it curative when imadicloprid failed to control Sugar Cane Grubs. But $ 530.83 agency price for 3.33 arces is a hard nut to swallow. Cost factor I would try every thing else before using Arena for just chinch bugs.

Tax Title and license I get mine over the curb and on the street for $ 567.99. I know you have a special Trade out deal that works out to be a lot less out of pocket expense.

But I have got to do what I got to do.
