Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How will I know if I have Chinch Bugs in my lawn?
A: If you notice dead areas of your lawn, start by checking the blades of grass down towards the dirt area. If you have them you will actually be able to see them clinging to the blades.
Q: If I have dead areas of grass is it always Chinch Bug damage?
A: Not necessarily, that is why it is important that you get down and look at the grass blades for the bugs. Other lawn problems may be Spring Dead Spots, or Winter Kill. Or possibly another fungus.
