I live in Florida, have St. Augustine grass and now have my first cinch bug
infestation. There are about half a dozen brown spots on the lawn at this
time. My question is what is the simplest way to get rid of these pests.
Thanks in advance...Ross
Unless you want to infest your lawn with pesticides every year you
could add clover to your lawn. Clover repells cinch bug and produces
nitrogen which benifits your regular grass - a natural way to control

For quicker results any liquid insecticide on the areas and away from
the areas a bit, re apply 7-10 days later maybe three applications to be
sure...granules can work but or slower and may end up below where the
bug feeds. Make sure it is the bug and not just brown patch, which
effects St Augustine, before treating.
