Chinch bugs are most active in July, but thrive and survive in your lawn year-round.

The southern chinch bug thrives and does most of it’s damage during the humid, warm and wet summer months in Florida. Chinch bug infestations generally peak in early July. Some say, the Chinch bug never has to leave home and will hunker down around the roots of your lawn during Florida winter. Often times, when chinch bugs become highly active again after winter, they will start eating where they left off and continue to damage your beautiful Florida lawn.
