stinkhorn fungus

I recently have been invaded by alien stinkhorn fungus which have infested my flower bed beside my front porch.
What advice besides digging up the mulch, dirt and the stinky things (that look like carrots with nasty green tips) can you give me? Can I get rid of these "guys"?

Collect and discard. The fungus will run out of steam on its own accord.

Good old fashioned bordeaux powder (a mixture of copper sulfate and lime) will knock back stinkhorn.

RE: stinkhorn fungus

Where do you get this powder and is it safe for the rest of the landscape plants? How do you use it?
I am desperate with about 3 acres of fungus covered yard.
