Happy New Year everyone! Sure hope someone can help me out with this nasty smelly stinkhorn fungus. It is spreading really fast and I don't know how to stop it, we dug some up and destroyed it, but it is still coming up in a lot of places, my yard smells like rotting meat....ugh. If anyone knows how to deal with this, I will be so grateful!

Is it white or red?

Since this fungus lives on organic matter on or in the soil, there really isn't much you can do other than keep an eye out for the little egg-like bodies and remove them before they grow.

Have you applied a bunch of wood mulch to your property in recent months?
