    Whenever brown patches or dead spots appear in the lawn we are quick to suspect a grub infestation.  
    This is not always the case though, in fact, contemporary lawn care routines may be more to blame than you realize. Some lawn care habits encourage disease and/or make your lawn more desirable to Japanese beetles and masked chafer beetles, both of which deposit the eggs that grow into grubs.
    The most common disease for lawns around here is brown patch (which is sometimes blamed on grubs).
