you have to investigate the area in order to know exactly what insect is doing the damage first.pull up the turf in some of the dead area's.check the dirt for insects under there.if there is no bugs, there might be a soil problem.some times if the turf pulls up in clumps kinda easy,it might be a grub problem.maybe discribe how it looks.maybe odd shaped,all the way dead spots,or circlular area's,getting lager and not all the way dead yet?tell us more?????maybe picture?
scouting to know what your problem is the first step...........
