Can someone please tell me what these are and what is the best way to eliminate this?

Last one... It's the darkish brown growth...

Thank you!

RE: What is this?

It looks like a "dog vomit" fungus. Nothing to do really. It occurs on mulch but doesn't seem to do any harm to my plants. I just lift it off and put it in the trash.

Do you happen to know if that attracts fungus gnats? I have a lot inside my house...

It's really not a problem unless you don't like the way it looks. Leave it be or compost it or throw it in the bushes.
