problem with chinch bugs

Has anyone had a problem with chinch bugs in the lawn and what did you do about it. They are making dead spots in our lawn. I don't think it's grubs because we have never had grubs but we have had chinch bugs and it looks like the same damage.

We had this problem years ago and used seven to clear it up. Now that pesticides are banned in Ontario I don't know what to use. Anyone have an idea?

Try beneficial nematodes. They parasitize and kill bugs like chinch bugs without poisoning the soil with chemicals.
