Grass problems

Asked July 2, 2019, 9:36 AM EDT

I have something spreading thru my grass, it started 2years ago and has spread through my entire front yard I can’t get anyone where I live to give me any answers, it looks like little silver dollar side bare spots, can’t tell if it’s a fungus or a bug. The only local person here who does pest care said fungus but when treated as directed nothing happened.help

I don't believe you have a fungus. From the photo, it looks as though you may have earthworms. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about earthworms as they are considered beneficial in the landscape. I have attached a few links that will provide you with more information and possible was to deter them, but in many cases, your lawn may suffer from the change in practices.
Also, be very cautious of any home remedies or online non-credible source solutions.
