I can't identify the pest without seeing it so I can only offer an educated guess: billbug larvae, leafhoppers, sod webworm adults (lawn moths) or whiteflies. All can cause damage so you may want to apply a pesticide such as Ortho Bug-B-Gon Max Lawn & Garden Insect Killer. Be sure to follow label directions. Good luck with your lawn.
