    What can you tell us about your lawn's decline, Linda? For example, how long did it take? Did you notice it start in one area? What is your general lawn-maintenance program? There could be insect-, disease- or cultural-related causes.

    I am with Douglas, can you provide a bit more history on the lawn? Do you have irrigation, did you notice a sudden decline or was it gradual? Did you do anything differently this year that you did not do before?

    My bet is that as we have more folks in Atlanta discovering the cold-tolerant St Augustine varieties, we'll have lots more chinch bug problems.
