ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.. keep an eye to the forecast and see if temps favor dollar spot. recomend proper cultural practices, watering, mowing etc. educate your damn self on the fungus. most of the time you can clean it up with a fert, change in cultural practices and some follow ups. dont be quick to sell a fungucide. IPM and customer service go out the window when you do that. try selling someone a fungicide and dip into hot and humid weather and explain to them in 2 weeks why the product is no longer effective and get a "well why did i spend all that money on a fungicide?"

and again, def go with the aeration this fall.

Did you apply these at full application rates... 1# N per 1,000?

I don't know your local laws (#N / year), but I would hit it with a sulfur coated Urea at full application rate this week.

Other then that, follow what I said to do in post 4...

Have it aerated now, the disease is not going to be around this fall.

Also JDL came out with Prophecy. It is basically Bayleton. It comes in 25lb bags instead of the old 40lb bags that Bayleton came in. The application rate is 2.5lbs/1000 for dollar spot. I think it has a 14 day interval. It's great if you are treating a lawn that has irrigation, or is small enough to get the product watered in.
