    One of the worst years for chinchbugs and billbugs in a long time.

    Both chinchbug and Billbug have been heavier than the past few years, chinchbug has seemingly made a significant return from the past 5-10 years but not sure if its an influx due to limited surface insect control applied as blanket apps in the past or just a situation due to environmental conditions.

    Probably both, Grassguy.

    Just get a liquid application on it ASAP and plan ahead for next year. I heard it wil be another mild winter (from a NOAA source):cry:
