Problem: Chinch Bugs

Symptoms: Irregular dry spots that turn yellow, then brown, as if drought-stressed. Caused by a tiny insect that sucks juices from grass blades. Chinch bugs usually infest St. Augustine lawns.

Solution: Better care and aerating usually helps. 'Floratam' is a resistant variety of St. Augustine. Treat with an appropriately labeled insecticide.
