Why is Your Lawn Turning Brown for No Apparent Reason
Is your grass turning brown in no particular pattern almost like the lawn is dry, yet you have been getting rainfall? This could be an insect problem. One clue to look for with insects is the presence of lawn moths when you mow. The moths do not damage your grass, however they lay eggs for sod webworm, cutworm and other lawn damaging insects. Chinchbug damage also shows up this time of year, especially in sunny areas. St. Augustinegrass and Kentucky Bluegrass lawns are especially susceptible to lawn insect damage.
