ARTILLERY FUNGUS & Power Washing?

ARTILLERY FUNGUS It is a great pain and all mulch in the area should be removed at once to prevent further damage to your cars, house, and other area flat surfaces. I would contact your landscaper at once. Mostly bark ingredient mulch should only be used, not the cheaper wood product mulch. Landscapers may try to counter what I am saying here, therefore I have supplied the information for you to decide.

If your siding has small black dots that do not come off during cleaning but can be scraped off using your finger nail. You probably have artillery fungus on your siding. This cannot be removed from the siding without causing damage.

The presence of persistent, small, brown spots on cars, house siding, plants, and other surfaces may indicate the presence of the fungus Sphaerobolus stellatus. This cosmopolitan saprophyte is also called the "artillery fungus" or "sphere thrower" since it forcibly ejects its brown spore masses for considerable distances. This fungus grows on wood and bark chips, dying and decaying wood, and dung. Although it is not pathogenic to plants or woody ornamental, it is a nuisance to homeowners.
