    Go pick some up at your local health food store and let us know how it works.

    Some other possibilities are diatomaceous earth, citrus oils, and compost

    How about endophytically enhanced grass, and just keeping the lawn unstressed. :)IMO a much easier solution, maybe the oil in a pinch on a new lawn. I think green light makes one, they advertise on the label for rose disease control, 25b exempt but the label allows for other uses as well. I believe its mixed with some type of mint, and it smells great. Its pretty cheap too if i remember correctly see if they have it at Lowe's or your local hardware store.
