Are Chinch Bugs Harmful?
Chinch bugs can definitely be harmful to lawns, primarily attacking red fescue and Kentucky bluegrass, which constitute over 80% of Canadian lawns. These pests extract the sap from grass blades and inject a toxin, leading to irreversible damage. Distinguishing chinchbug damage from drought effects can be challenging; chinch bug damage typically appears less uniform and localized, while drought damage is more consistent and widespread across the lawn.
