Question: there are yellow patches in my yard /st augustine. dont know if I have a fungus or bug.
thank you

Answer: Lisa,

Your lawn is being affected by some type of fungus. These are quite common in Texas this year due to all the extra rainfall. Yellow patch, summer patch and take-all patch are three possibilities. These can be treated with fungicides if you deem necessary but if the rain will let up a little the areas may begin to improve. If you decide to treat look for a product with myclobutanil.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
