I have Red Thread on parts of my lawn and am told it is because of a lack of Nitrogen in the soil. Is this true? I have a lawn care company fertilize my lawn, shouldn’t they be applying enough Nitrogen Based Fertilizer to prevent Red Thread? This never happened when I had a different company fertilizing my lawn. Also do you do ph and Nitrogen soil testing? Thank you.
Yes, timely applications of nitrogen can eliminate red thread. You should talk to you lawn care company to see what they have applied and what they plan to apply. I’d have to assume they’ve been applying nitrogen.
We sell test kits for testing pH and soil nutrient levels but do not perform the tests.
Here’s link to a good fact sheet on red thread:
