Few things can turn your Lakeland, FL yard into a real headache more than chinch bugs. These voracious bugs have long been the bane of the Florida homeowner.

Incorporating chinch bug control into your regular pest control routine will keep these lawn destroyers in check before they turn your lawn into a smorgasbord.
Chinch bugs are particularly fond of St. Augustine grass. They kill the grass by draining the sap from the blades until it withers and eventually dies. They will devour one area and then move on to another if left unchecked. During this endeavor, the females also lay about 250 eggs each during their lifespan, and each egg hatches less than 2 weeks after being laid. It is not difficult to see how quickly a lawn can be infested with chinch bugs. Let us help keep this from happening to you.
