I have been getting brown spots about 1-2 in. in diameter on my Trinettes. Please advise what I need to do.
Also in the past week, have small moth type pests in grass and they fly up when walking on grass. Never had this before. Please advise.

Thanks.

For your Trinettes: Bactericides can be used, but are not very successful. Control must be based on maintenance of dry foliage and removal of infected leaves or plants from the growing area to reduce spread to healthy plants.

As for the lawn, you have the adult stage of sod webworms and you can treat with a granular insect product from one of our stores. Here is another link on the sod webworm issue: http://www.lifeandlawns.com/20...
