    What should I do? Reading up on it states just cutting should do the job. Two week of rain and humidity here in SC

    Slime mold grows on the grass--it does not infect the grass. No harm. No need to do anything, actually. A strong broom sweep should remove it--or drag a mat over it.
    Its a thing during warm rainy conditions.

    Hmm...I see that often enough. As mentioned it does not effect the plant. I believe it grows in the night dew.

    Where in South Carolina are you? We are in Mount Pleasant and I'm getting to try to tackle all of the doveweed that's popped up due to this rain.

    I ordered Blindside to try and get rid of most of it. I also have a few patches of virginia buttonweed that have popped up. It will hopefully take care of the other weeds I have in the yard that I've never given much thought to. I'm bound and determined to get specticle as a pre emergent for early/late spring applications and summer to keep the doveweed away. This is the second year I've dealt with it and just tried to use big box stuff. Hard lesson to learn. I've also had issues with poa annua so I'll probably order some prodiamine in the next few days for a 9/1 application
