Bayer Advanced Natria Insect, Disease and Mite Control is not labeled for chinch bugs nor for lawn application. Talstar PL Granules are one of the most effective chinch bug treatments on the market, and can safely be applied to St. Augustine grass. Chinch bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the highest applications rates will be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the summer. It may also be necessary to remove the thatch layer if it exceeds 1 inch in thickness to allow the Talstar granules to penetrate down to the soil. You may also want to take a look at our Chinch Bug Control Guide for more tips and information on doing a complete treatment.
