Identifying billbug and chinch bug damage

Billbug damage

Billbug larvae or "grubs" can be very damaging to your lawn. Grubs eat grass roots off at the soil level, making damaged grass easy to pull up. Under the grass, you can find small, legless, white grubs just under the soil. Prevent billbug damage by using Zamzows Shield in early April and again 90 days later. If grubs are active, an additional application of Bayer Advanced 24-Hour Grub Control is needed.

Chinch bug damage

Chinch bug damage appears as dry areas in the lawn often beginning near curbing or sidewalks. Unlike grub damage, chinch bug damaged lawn does not pull up easily. Prevent & control chinch bugs by applying Zamzows Chinch Bug Control in late-April and again 90 days later.
