    Can anyone tell me what red thread is? I went to Lesco and decribed what was happening to my lawn - 3 to 4 inch circles that appered to be reddish in color. He told me to just fertilize it - which I did - to get rid of it. Is it common in the northeast and where does it come from and why does it happen. My biggest and most important question is - can I avoid it?

    Any help would be great - also I would like to say that this website is great - everyone who leaves feedback and participates really help a lot of people out - so everyone reading this - keep up the good work.

    Thanks, Keith

    You did the right thing. Keeping a good steady fert program going will prevent it... most of the time.
