Red Thread Treatment for Your Lawn

Red thread is an increasingly common lawn disease that usually occurs in the late summer, when humidity is high as a result of warm weather and heavy rainfall.

Lawns with poor fertility are especially susceptible to red thread. The disease may also be caused by blunt lawnmower blades smashing the grass ends.

If you’ve noticed red thread in your lawn, help is at hand – contact Lawn & Weed Expert today to request a free survey and arrange red thread treatment if necessary.

Red Thread Lawn Treatment

Serious cases of red thread may require an application of fungicide to control the disease.

The lawn usually recovers within 2-3 weeks of treatment. Avoid watering late in the evening as this may encourage the disease.
