Backyard Fungis (mushroom) Identification
Can anyone ID these for me and suggest a good way to kill them? I tried image searching them but just can't seem to make a positive ID. Thanks.

a common fungicide from Lowes will clean'em up. If that doesnt kill it...you may have to call your local farmer and see if they have any Quadris or Headline they can mix up for you in a pump spray bottle. 9oz will cost you about $25/gal
as for the worms...I cant tell from the distance. they look like maggets but they are too big for that. almost grub like but the heads are white. kill one and get a close up..or go to lowes again and find a general pesticide. are they killing your yard? if yes, use a pesticide called Seven and combine it with Malathion. problem solved. you shouldnt need anything like Mustang max EC, Belt, or Warrior II.

They grow due to soil.. Something in the soil, animal waste can cause this.. Wear gloves.. remove the mushrooms.. throw them away that way they dont spread.. any mulch spilled in yard? The bugs are maggots... the mushrooms smell good so the flies lay there eggs on them.. i think they are A tabscens.. I would not eat them...

Yesterday she read online that old, rotting tree roots can cause this. We started thinking and guess what used to be right where we were digging them out? Yup, there used to be a big red maple that had to be removed years ago. Those were the roots I was hitting and the source of the shrooms I bet.
