I have noticed that there are areas on my lawn where the grass has disappeared, but the clover remains, and there are little round holes probably around the size of the tip of your pinky finger. I thought maybe ants, but I never see any activity near the holes. I thought it was much too early for grubs. What could they be? Any clue? I live in Plymouth, MA.
It could be a few things. One possibility is that it is earthworms or birds searching for earthworms. Another possibility is that they are entrances to bee or wasp nests.
My grass has what looks like large, round dead spots where the grass appears to look like hay. I have thatched the spots and fertilized, and it appears that some green grass is coming back but not all. My question is: Is this a fungus that can be treated and with what?

Our lawn is greening up nicely for south Louisiana. We have cut twice already. There are several areas that the grass appears to be ‘burnt’. We can pull up the sprigs and the bottom is green, but the top looks as if it actually has been burned. The areas are spotty and about 12-15 feet in length. In our 5-acre lawn, there are approximately 10 areas like this. Please help. Is it bugs or fungus or what?
