Lawns/Red thread disease


I live in south Louisiana. While mowing my yard this morning, I noticed a few blades of grass were red. Last year I noticed they I had large patches of dark green, patches of light green, and and brown spots. After doing a little online research, I think it may be red thread disease. Does this sound like the correct conclusion? What would be the best form of treatment? Thank you for your time and your help.

I am not doing too well with questions today.
I am completely unfamiliar with red thread disease; except that it is caused by a fungus - and a good fungicide may control its spread. But I suspect that you will find such an answer inadequate.
So, check out THIS SITE.
If you still have questions you can come back here.
Thanks for your enquiry.
