Roger from Alachua, Fl writes,

What is best to use to kill chinch bugs that are in our St. Augustine grass? How to mix, if mixing is needed....

Our grass is brown down the middle of our lawn and in other spots around the yard. At certain times of the year is worst than others. We have replanted new grass and added nutrients, but the problem still exists.


Talstar P is our best selling product for chinch bug control. The key is to use lots of water to carry the Talstar P down to the thatch layer underneath the grass, where the chinch bugs do the damage. Please read the product label for proper use instructions.
