Chinch Bug Control?


I was wondering what is a good product to use when trying to rid a lawn of chinch bugs? Is it alright to apply a insecticide when I am going to aerate in the next few weeks? Any information is much appreciated!

Aeration--no problem. Do not treat for chinchbug if you do not need to treat. Chinch bugs become resistant to insecticides quickly. After a few treatments they may become resistant to an insecticide--and that means resistance to all similar products--or perhaps they are already resistant.


Plenty of water will usually allow the grass to recover
