    Yikes! I think that’s the most evocative name I’ve ever come across! Facinating organisms.(Hmmm, are they officially organisms…?)
    Thanks for keeping it interesting! 🙂

    How long does this slime mold stay in the garden?
    Does it ever go away?

    I just came in from spraying this nasty fungus I’ve seen for some time growing under some bird feeders with a powerful hose. Seeing the clouds of spores erupt, I thought after breathing it, it was curtains for me. From what I’ve read, I will live to see some more grow back. I don’t know if that’s a victory or not.. >:-D

    We have this slime mold vomit in the children’s playground, in the bark that surrounds the play equipment. The children run around in it and have daily contact with the bark. Is it harmful to the children? We usually remove it and spray the area with a bleach solution. Is there another way to get rid of it? Their parents are really concerned!

    It’s harmless.
