How would I mix dawn with water for lawn fungus?

Postby berowalt » February 22nd, 2013, 2:15 am

We have an apparent fungus in our Bermuda grass lawn. The spots are roundish and have increased in number since last year. Someone told my husband to use Dawn Dishwashing Liquid on them but didn't tell how to mix it. My husband wanted to pour straight Dawn on the spots but I'm convinced that it should be diluted. Does anyone know how to mix for this purpose? Should it be poured or sprayed on?

the advice using dish soap is for sod webworms, not fungus....see 'small irregular ...." here
