This season we have seen unbeleiveable amounts of rain from spring thru even that last month and usually that will promote the fungi Beauveria that has destructive capabilities to the chinchbug. Well within the past few weeks the chinchbugs have begun showing up in large amounts all over, both first generation and new nymphs and early instars! Are any of you having chinchbugs starting up?

Southern Chinch bug are not bad this year. Too much rain for Chinch bugs they drown. However brown patch fungus has been bad this year and we are expecting a heavy grub season.

We have to rotate chemicals on Chinch bug. Couple of years ago Dursban stopped working on them. Talstar has always worked for me but I have heard stories about it not working for others.
