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.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
