You may have to dig two feet under the surface and one foot outside the ring to get rid of the fungus. The hope is that you do not need to replace your whole lawn.

The highest frequency of infection occurs during periods of high relative humidity and prolonged leaf wetness. This is a deadly lawn disease and spreads very quickly if left untreated.
Red thread most commonly affects Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue. Outbreaks usually occur in low maintenance turf stands.
