    Thanks for the link to the article. It says to mix mulch with 40% mushroom soil. I can have that done for me at the landscape supply place. It might be an option for the homeowner. Did you ever see a yard that has circles on it that are darker green in the grass. Last time I saw them in my yard I told my neighbor that aliens had landed here. It is caused by mushrooms shooting out their spores. So if you go to the middle of the green circle you will find some form of a mushroom. This is why these black spores are being shot out a vehicles and vinyl siding. By the way, the house, has gutters and rain water is not causing the spores to shoot up to the siding. In fact, some of the spores are 8 foot off the ground.
