    a good insecticide labeled for chinchbugs, read labels, mix and apply appropriately:)



    try cyfluthrin or bifenthrin, there have been studies showing a resistance to the latter though!

    I use MicSevin, and Talstar. Sevin has to dry completely, and talstar has to be watered for 10 minutes to be effective..Just be sure you have chinch bugs.. A lot of people think they have them right now but there lawns are actually drought stressed which looks exactly the same....you have to search for the chinch bugs to know thats your problem.
