Ask Darin: There is fungus in my mulch!

Dear Darin: I have this fungus in my mulch and it is spreading everywhere, what do I do? It is sometimes yellow, white, black or brown, but it looks like dog throw up! Yuck!

ANSWER: We are seeing this fungus this year because of all the moisture we received this spring. The only way of treating this is to take a shovel to the effected area, carefully remove the fungus, put in a plastic bag and dispose. If you water it, step on it, or pop it, it will turn into a black powder and spread--not a good idea! Try to stay ahead of this and you will slow or stop the spread.
