The fungus will usually subside once the lawn has a chance to dry out so no treatment is necessary. However, corn gluten meal will control the fungus. If you decide to use it, apply about 15 pounds corn gluten meal per 1000 sq.ft of lawn, and water it in. Or, you can disolve 4 teaspoons baking soda per gallon of water, and spray it lightly. The corn gluten meal will work a little better and it also adds many nutrients to the soil, as well as helping keep weed seeds from germinating. Good luck with your lawn.
