Question of the Week
browse by: questions
We're seeing toadstools these days thanks to the rain we've had. They're a fungi, but don't need to be treated with a fungicide. They are relatively harmless. Because they are living on dead and decaying plant matter (they're not living on your living grass), they're not really causing too much of a problem. So instead of applying a fungicide, what you need to do is just kick them over with your foot or pull them out and toss them in your compost pile, but again, they're not really causing much of a problem. If those caps are staying like a little umbrella and they haven't opened yet, the spores haven't been released. There's not much you can do about these because the spores are pretty much in the air and in the soil and they only pop up when we're getting too much rain.
