I’m having a little trouble identifying these spots that just showed up within the last week. I’m thinking grubs. Thanks in advance

Are these the only spots?
See how easily these patches pull up.
If they are difficult to pull up, try the screwdriver test (i.e., use a screwdriver to see if you can hit rocks underneath the surface).

what about dog spots?

Like social said..... pull on the grass and see if it comes up easy and look for the actual grubs.

I’ve never had a problem in this area before. It sorta pulls up easy, also no dogs in this area I will dig in a little to see if there are any visible grubs and report back
