The Q&A Archives: Lawn Bugs

Question: I have alot of very small winged tingy lite white to pale yellow bugs that jump out of my lawn and fly away when I water the lawn or walk on the lawn.what kind of bugs are they?the grass is getting dried out now with not much rain. we have not sprayed or fertil. for bugs yet.

Answer: You might possibly be seeing leafhoppers. I would suggest you consult with your local county extension to obtain a more specific identification, and based on knowing that decide if you need to do anything about them. (Many insects do not harm lawns at all.) If a chemical control is needed they will have the most up to date information on what to use and how/when is best to use it for maximum results.
