Chinch bugs are tiny insects that can cause extensive damage to your lawn in Pennsylvania. These pests suck out the juices from grass blades, leaving them dry and brown. If you suspect chinch bugs have infested your turf, it's crucial to reach out to professionals as soon as possible so they can administer a curative treatment to eliminate them. Then, you should schedule lawn care services to help your lawn recover from any damage caused by these insects.

What are chinch bugs, and what kind of damage can they cause?

Chinch bugs are tiny insects that belong to the family Lygaeidae. They have black bodies and wings and can be found in Pennsylvania as well as in many other states in the US. When feeding, these pests pierce the grass blades and suck out plant juices through their mouthparts, causing significant damage to lawns, leaving them with brown or yellow patches. Over time, an infestation can spread and harm your entire lawn.

If you think your lawn is infested with chinch bugs, call professionals right away!

If you suspect that your lawn is infested with chinch bugs, it is crucial to take action right away! The longer you wait, the more damage these pests can do, costing you more time and money down the road. So, if you notice signs of chinch bug damage, such as wilting grass or patches of brown grass, you should reach out to your local lawn care professionals. Once you do, they will come out to inspect your lawn. They will be able to confirm whether your lawn is indeed infested with chinch bugs. If it is, they will administer a curative treatment to stop them in their tracks so that they can’t continue to cause damage to your lawn.

Schedule lawn care services like fertilization, aeration, and overseeding to help your lawn recover after a chinch bug infestation.

While a professional treatment will get rid of the chinch bugs, it won’t reverse the damage they already caused. Fortunately, there are various lawn care services you can schedule to help your lawn recover from any damage it endured. Some of the most beneficial lawn care services include:

  • Lawn Fertilization: Fertilizing your lawn will give it all the nutrients it needs to grow strong, healthy, and green again. It also helps build up its resistance to stressors like chinch bugs in the future.
  • Aeration: Aerating your lawn gives the roots of your grass better access to nutrients and resources, helping it recover from a chinch bug infestation.
  • Overseeding: Overseeding your lawn promotes new growth and fills in those bare spots that were created by chinch bug damage.
Pairing aeration with overseeding ensures the seeds fall into the holes created during the aeration process, giving them excellent seed-to-soil contact!
