Chinch bugs are tiny black insects that have white wings that are folded across their backs. These bugs might be small, but they can cause a lot of damage to your lawn. Even though they might be difficult to see, it isn’t hard to see the destruction that they cause.

These creatures will suck each and every blade of grass on your lawn completely dry over time, and they also inject a poison into your grass that will kill it. One of the first signs of a chinch bug infestation is a discoloration of your lawn and very dry grass; in fact, it might look as if your lawn is completely dehydrated, even if you have been watering it regularly or if your area has been experiencing a lot of rain.

By looking carefully, you can often see them; even if you can’t, pouring a bit of water that has been mixed with detergent onto a dry spot can often bring them to the surface. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean that you don’t have them, however; if your lawn looks dead and dry and you have been doing what you can to take care of it, chances are good that you do have a chinch bug infestation.

If you want to get rid of your chinch bug infestation and protect your lawn, contact a professional pest control service for more information. Many pest control companies offer affordable, reliable services for getting rid of chinch bugs, but they can also get rid of any other pests that might be in and around your home.
