Most insects prefer heat, which generally means open, sunny locations in your lawn.  The weather also plays a big role in what pest is a problem in a given year.  During wet summers chinch bugs are a nuisance.  In other years, grubs will destroy turf roots from small patches to large expanses.  The best defense is to have your lawn checked periodically by a professional, especially if you are having the lawn treated.  Applying products is not always necessary or needed.  Some applications can prevent the problem, while others can cure the situation once it is noticed or becomes a threat to turf loss.
