What is eating my grass?

    Can anyone give me a clue as to what is eating my St Augustine and what to put on it to stop them from eating it? I sprayed some Spectracide Triacizide last week but have some new spots where something has been eating. I mixed the correct amount but have to wonder if I screwed it up on the application. Any thoughts or advice on whether the Spectracide Triacizide is worth using or if I should be looking at trying to get something else would be greatly appreciated.

    I know these pictures aren't the greatest and I will attempt to get some more that give a better overall picture of what the entire yard looks like.

    Thanks again,
    Eric :usflag:

    I honestly have no clue; St Augustine mixed with some dollar weed here and there. I am not a turf guy by trade I just think a majority of it is St Augustine. I honestly didn't know that there were different types of St Augustine.

    Take Care,

    Looks like cinch bugs. Where in the panhandlle are you? If close to FWB take picture over to extension office on Hollwood and they will steer you in the proper direction. Or go over and talk with Karen at the Lesco dealer
