Problem: You may be seeing disease symptoms of snow mold or red thread on turf. Both diseases cause similar symptoms. Checking for sclerotia would confirm snow mold. Snow mold and red thread can look similar in turf.
Solution: There is no need to do anything for control. Turf will start growing and the symptoms will disappear. The first round of treatment will push new growth and help alleviate symptoms. A well balanced fertilizer program will help lesson damage to turf.
Time to start thinking “Green” Montgomery and Bucks counties. First round of fertilizer and crabgrass control is being applied. Make sure you are doing a good spring clean up of debris from the lawn. A light raking will help to air out the lawn preventing matting and spring disease activity.
