Gray Leaf Spot Fungus
Gray Leaf Spot Fungus develops round to oblong spots on the leaves of St. Augustine and Rye grasses that are brown to ash colored with purple to brown margins.   Spots may be covered with gray mold in warm, humid weather.   Lesions may also occur on the stems.   In severe cases leave have a scorched appearance.   This fungus is prevalent during the rainy summer months.

The elimination of most fungi can be prevented or controlled with traditional spraying or dusting.   To repeat, this is not a cure.   To prevent these fungi from appearing and damaging your turf, the turf must be sprayed before and not after the disease strikes.   It must be kept on the turf as constantly as possible for the period the disease period is likely to attack.

Collier Pest Control does not offer monthly or other scheduled turf maintenance programs.   Collier Pest Control does offer one time correction treatments for fungi and other turf damaging problems.
