I have seen these hunt night-crawlers on a few occasion and eat them alive.
Looks like a cinch bug. Treat your lawn before any damage is done. Your in Idaho so not sure but there most common in the south and love St. Augustine, Zoysia type lawns.
That's not a chinch bug. I 'm pretty sure it's a European Ground Beetle. It is a beneficial insect.
Chinch bug, are you serious? Perhaps self proclaimed lawn pro would be more accurate!
PSUturf is correct. European groud beetle.....Google it!
Yup that's what it is . . . European ground beetle http://gardening.wsu.edu/library/inse002/inse002.htm see Fig 2.
I have never used chems on my lawn since I've been here 2.5 years. I have a few dandelion and some clover and the ground moves at night with night-crawlers galore.
We also have seasonal frogs and I spotted a salamander in the grass last night. I have picture of that if anybody wants to see it.
that first picture is AMAZING..lol great quality
Found a friend Took that one last night.
other critters in the grass
agree not a chinch bug. But my yard had them (chinch bug) last yr. Or at least thats what Clemson U. said.
