Surface Insect Management

Surface Insect (Chinch Bug) Management


Surface Insect Management manages infestations of chinch bug and certain other surface feeding insects to reduce their feeding and resulting damage.  This treatment to manage Chinch bug levels is included in our core Packages or can be purchased separately when insect problems are detected. Grubs are NOT a surface feeding insect as some companies will mislead you into thinking. Grub Control is a separate service.
