Pink snow mold mycelium. It may not require treatment other than taking
a leaf rake and fluffing up the matted turf. Hope you didn't leave your
lawn tall last fall, a short final cutting helps prevent some of this.
It's still too early in the year in PA to apply fungicide anyway. Give
it a normal balanced feeding in a month or so, after you have cleaned/
fluffed the blighted areas with a leaf rake. If it continues to spread
after that you'll need a trip to the garden center for some fungicide.
You guys are funny!
Dursban (not Duraspan) is an insecticide.
After looking up Duraspan I found Dursban, of which I am familiar, on the
Dow Agro site. They have a fungicide named Fore which is labelled for the
treatment of snow mold.
I have followed Steveo's suggestion to fluff up the affected areas. Later I
may give the lawn a dose of Fore. If it is available to a civillian like me.
It's not illegal to use it up at label rate for ants and such. The main
reason it was phased out was due to over-use..it was the active ingredient
in many control products, even pet flea collars. If applied where sunlight
shines on the target area, its residual is often less than one day.
Pretty decent chinch bug control too.
