Of all the pests that damage lawns, fungus diseases are one of the most difficult to tame. There are hundreds of diseases that can infect your turf. Some are relatively harmless; others can destroy an entire lawn in a very short time.
DISEASE TRAVELS BY FOOT, WATER & AIR
Fungus spores spread on the wheels of lawn mowers, on the shoes of children, on the droplets of rain that bounce from plant to plant during rain or watering, or by wind, blown like microscopic seeds across your lawn. Every lawn has disease organisms. The trick is not letting them get the upper hand.
PREVENTION, THE BEST CURE
To reduce disease, keep the lawn healthy and growing with proper nourishment, mowing, watering and thatch control measures. Some grass types are much less susceptible to fungus attack. Consider planting disease-resistant varieties when you seed.
WITH TREATMENT, CONTROL IS THE GOAL
Disease treatments do no usually eliminate the disease from the lawn. Instead, they suppress activity for a period of a few days to several weeks. The goal is to keep the disease in check long enough for the grass to recover or the weather conditions to change. Often, several treatments are needed.
