    If it's red thread it can be treated with a fungicide but it's easier to give the lawn a dose of high nitrogen fertilizer and they usually recover on their own once temps increase and humidity decreases

    Pluck an infected blade. If it is Red Thread it will have what looks like a little red thread growing up it. If that is what it is, I would say that the pH is off. That would explain why the fertilizer isn't working.

    I will tell the guy to do that when he is mowing today. He should be there shortly.
