|Bayer Advanced? Complete Insect Killer will control chinch bugs. You'll need to use a spreader (check the back of the package for calibration). You can apply the product now. Or you can use an insecticidal soap spray on areas where damage has occurred. Diatomaceous earth can also be used to control chinch bugs. Diatomaceous earth is an insecticidal dust which acts as an abrasive. It cuts the outer layer of the chinch bug's body causing it to dehydrate and then die. Products containing pyrethrin can also be used. Best wishes with your lawn!
