Beat back Chinch bugs with Worm Tea

9 Jul

A few weeks ago I had noticed a few brown patches from my neighbors yards creeping close to mine.  Within a few days affected areas were well into my grass.  Upon further inspection of the pattern and damage it appeared to be the dreaded chinch bug.  The little critters love dry conditions and love to eat away at the healthy roots of grass.  I quickly brewed up some worm tea and made a liberal application to my yard.  Within a couple of days, my neighbor and I noticed a difference and are happy to see the grass is on it’s way to recovering.

Worm tea is an all natural inexpensive way to beat back garden and lawn pests, and has saved me loads of money and headaches.  The beneficial micro organisms in your actively aerated tea will add life back to the soil and are predacious to many pests attacking lawns and vegetables.
