Get rid of mushrooms

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how to get rid of mushrooms in a lawn? These things seem to come back within two days of mowing.

A rake does not take them out of the ground. I was thinking like bleach or some type of additive to the ground to kill them off. Oh, and no they are not the kind you can eat smile Slimy brownish ones

Bleach will kill the grass.

You may have a stump or brush that was burried durring construction and the decomposing wood can cause mushrooms to form.

Mushrooms become a problem when we have wet weather in spring and fall. all i would recommend if they are a problem is raking them out or suck them up with the mower.

Do you get a dark green ring of grass where these mushrooms form? If so, it is Fairy Ring.

No rather they are in massive "clumps" that are spread out in a 20x20 foot area.

If i remember right there was a product 25 or 30 years ago. It was taken off the market because of how toxic it was. The best thing is to keep cutting them off & waiting for the organic matter they are living off of to decay to the point that they don't have anything to live off of.

I have used different fungicides and had good success.

I wonder if athlete's foot spray would work? grin I wrote that as a joke but now that I think about it just might work.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
