Talstar XTRA Granules is labeled for Chinch Bugs. For control of Chinch Bugs, it is recommended to use 2.3 to 4.6 Lbs/1000 sq ft (100-200 lbs per acre). Irrigate with up to 0.25 inches of water immediately after application to activate (release from the granule) the insecticide. Chinch bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher applications rates may be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the summer.
