Lawn Care - Knowledgebase Question

I treated my lawn for grubs, but unfortunately there are areas of the lawn that are brown where they ate the roots. Is it best to lay grass seed in these areas or will the grass take root by itself?

You'll see faster results if you rake out the dead areas and reseed. Grass seed will germinate in 7-10 days and your lawn will green up and look terrific within just a few weeks. If you wait for the grass to fill in the bare areas on it's own, you may be battling weeds and bare spots until next spring. I'd reseed now.
