    Not fungus. A nat droppings that's white. Spray with malithon and get the ground well under it. Clean out old leaves and retreat weekly till late fall.

    Same here. Mine are getting way too hairy. I'm about to get the chainsaw after them before long. The old lady is not going to like it though.
