    Are liquid or granular insecticides more effective for treating chinch bugs? What products have you had good results with? Does one treatment take care of it for the year?
    Thanks,

    I like Liquid for the CB. In Thachy Turf like Fine Fescue OR Kentucky Blue, I use 2 gal per 1,000.

    Other Cool season Turf I use the PG for Low Vol app. @ 1 Qt per 1000.

    Talstar (Bifenthrin) still works well on CB in NJ.


    Water in with 1/4" of irrigation following app.

    MNMasterExterminator and your asking what???? Well, ok. I like Bifen IT (same as Talstar but cheaper) applied at 1 oz/k at a 4 gpm rate. I think the higher volume works better. Like Pete said, water 1/4" after app. Granular works but not as fast and has a longer residual (more expensive).

    It is the same old story. Liquid gives quick knock down while granules give longer resisdual. But in either case water is needed.
