I have this on a couple of my lawn and im curious as to what it is for sure.Is it chinch bugs?
what type of grass is it? Kinda looks like doolar spot
what type of grass is it? kinda looks like dollar spot
This information is quoted from the Turfgrass Management book ,by A.J Turgeon
"Close examination of the turf,especially after brushing accross the shoots
with the fingers,reveals the tiny Chinchbugs where feeding takes place."
"Another diagnostic technique is ti insert an open-ended cylinder,
(coffee can,with both ends cut off) into the turf,fill it with water and add pyrethrin or household detergent:if present,chinchbugs will float to the surface in 5-10 minutes.
Hope this helps
i believe its kentucy blue and red fescue.what causes dollar spot and whats the cure?
if i roughly brush my fingers across the area's the brown grass just comes right out
You know you can't get a proper diagnosis over the internet even in a room with alot of experienced people.
Someone needs to physically actually look at the lawn that can give you a clear diagnosis.
If you treat for Chinchbugs,and have Dollarspot that would be irresponsible.
Take a sample to your local extension agency to get a clear diagnosis or get another lawn contractor to come and determine what your problem actually is.
Do the "tug test" for Bluegrass billbug damage. If the grass comes out with an easy tug, look at the ends to see if they are hollow and filled with sawdust like material indicating Billbug damage. We had a tremendous amount of damage here in the late spring.
Need a real good close-up of the grass and the base of the grass blades
