Last Fall chinch bugs worked their magic on a few spots of my Floratam lawn. Nine months later the bugs are dead but the grass has not grown back (as I thought it would). Instead, I have some bare ground and weeds where once there was lawn.

1. Will Floratam usually grow back after the bugs a re killed?2. Are plugs the recommended repair, or perhaps sod? (the largest damage is approx. 20 sq.ft.)3. Or should I simply seed the damaged areas with some other variety of grass?

Thank you all for sharing your knowledge!- H52
