Death Cap mushrooms/toadstools
While having a general tidy up in my mums garden, her gardener found 2 what he reconised as 'Death Cap' mushrooms. he has managed to remove them, but fears they may come back. after doing some research on the net he found out that they are, as the name would saggest highly toxic and can kill just from breathing in the spores or touch. apparently they are quite rare and usually only found in woodland. sorry but i do not have a picture of them, as this is second hand information, and they have already been removed. but according to his discription they are bright red with black spots. does anyone know anymore about them? is there a weed killer that will kill all parts of this fungus so that it does not return? or any other way of insuring they do not return. my mum has 3 young grandchildren - my little 3 year old girl included and they always play in her garden. thank you.
