    I have relocated to our summer home in Gulf Shores, AL. Anyway, I have noticed these yellow patches developing in the grass. I know northern grasses and can diagnose some of the typical problems. However, southern grasses are my downfall. A neighbor said she had the same problem and a friend told her to use 2 cups bleach to 1 gallon of water to cure. She claims it's a type of worm problem. Before I resort to bleaching my lawn, what do you think is going on?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Here are two photos of the problem that I am having in my turf:

    Looks to me like Centipede delcine. To much Nitrogen and mowing height above 2" increases the risk. You will notice there will be little root development in those areas.
