 FUNGICIDAL DISEASE CONTROL AND INSECT PEST/GRUB CONTROL 

Observe for fungal disease and insect damage. This grass is sensitive and not resistant to the chinch bugs or gray leaf spot disease. Chinch bugs are a major pest of St. Augustinegrass and are often misdiagnosed as drouight damage. Use a water flotation technique to determine if chinch bugs are present. For details on the flotation technique, see LAWN PROBLEMS(LAWN INSECTS) under the chinch bug. August is the best time to control white grubs because they are small and close to the soil. Mole crickets hatch in early summr and begin to cause noticeable damage by August. Use the soap flush technique to determine if mole crickets are present, see LAWN PROBLEMS(LAWN INSECTS) under the mole cricket. If you need help in identifying the lawns disease damage we have provided additional information on our website to help consumers select the right product or method to solve their lawn problems. Only apply broad spectrum, professional fungicide or insecticide when the problem areas have been identified.

RECOMMEND: PROFESSIONAL FUNGICIDE AND PROFESSIONAL INSECTICIDE IF NEEDED BY IDENTIFICATION
