Question from: Richard Fulford
Posted on: July 12, 2007

I don’t want to use chemicals on my lawn. How do I get rid of Chinch bugs? Is Scanmask the way to go. Have you any infofmation on Scanmask?

Scanmask works well on Chinch bugs, according to one of our customers who used it after I suggested it to her. Scanmask consist of the resting phase of predatory nematodes. Contact with water makes the resting stage turn back into the tiny worm-like hunters that will find and eat anything that pupates in the soil. You sprinkle the preparation on the affected area and then water well, or mix it with water in a watering can with a rosette spout and while stirring constantly, water it onto the affected area. Keep the area moist for fastest results.
