RED THREAD

HEY, I TELL THEM THE SAME THING, AND IT WOULD BE
TRUE IF THE CONDITIONS THAT FAVOR THE SPREAD OF
IT WOULD CHANGE. IF IT IS REALLY A PROBLEM TO THEM
THEN GO AHEAD AND SELL A FUNGICIDE. TELL THEM IT
WILL NEED TO BE RE-APPLIED EVERY 30 DAYS AND THAT
GOLF COURSES DO IT ON A REGULAR BASIS.IT WILL BE
PRICY, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE
WILL SAY "JUST DO IT"

In Seattle we see it around Nov. & Dec. with no snow cover they see it. Don't treat with a fungicide. It will go away, aeration works great: GO www.rootsinc.com . I was in NJ over the holiday and the soil was Shale, in S.Jersey it is sand....what soil are you?
Try to get $40 an app. here......

I wouldnt use fungicides,they can be a little harsh on the microorganisms in the lawn,a lot of them are benefitial-it will wipe them out too.Just hit it with fertilzert and grow it out,unless its real bad.I use them on the golf course,every 17-30 days from late may to september-Id have no greens left if i didnt.
