Looking for product to control sod-web worms and other lawn pests including chinch bugs in FL.
Bermuda, St. Augustine and Zoysia. May have cinch bugs as well. Tired of using products that don't work.
The most popular product for sod webworms is Talstar. Talstar is very effective on most insects including chinch bugs and it is gentle to plants. Time applications to control young larvae, if possible. Spot treatments may be applied when infestations are first detected and the damaged area is small. The treatment will be most effective if applied in the early evening when larvae begin feeding. Please check with your local cooperative extension office to see if a second generation is possible in one season in your region.
