    Sounds like grubs.

    Yeah, move over about 1 foot from where the dead spots are, grab the turf with both hands and pull. You should see them right there.

    How did I miss this one? Is it St. Augustine? If so, I will bet on it being chinch bugs. If it is bahia, I would guess mole crickets.

    Tell your customer to call a lic. pest control company in Fla. if you get caught treating grubs it can cost you $$$$.
