Problems with zoysia grass

I’m in St. Louis, and we have been experiencing drought and 100+ degree temparatures. I’ve been watering my lawn regularly, but I’m getting some signficant brown patches. Someone told me that there is some sort of “bug” in our area that damages zoysia lawns, and I’m trying to find it whether we may have that problem.
