Try this fungicide: ProStar 70WDG. I put it down this spring and as of late July, no stink horns.

Wink Stink horn mushrooms

I know the answer, I have the cure!
Well get on over it, get rid of your mulch, that's right get rid of the mulch. These stinkers love to grow in an acidic environment, and in decaying wood. Hello mulchie, can you give me a home, where the spores can roam? You can try adding lime, but in my small area I put down 200 lbs of lime, just to have those stinkers come back for greeting my Christmas guests. The stinkie draws the bugs, the bugs spread the spores and there are millions of them...you can't win.. So get over yourself, shovel up the mulch, treat with lime, and put down either rock or the big bark chips. And don't let some bozo tell you to put salt or chlorine on them...that will just kill the one you put it on..and it might just kill your plants too...and it does nothing for the spores that are lingering. And the nursery or garden centers are more than happy to sell you some stuff to spray...but guess what????? The mulch absorbs it. So give it up,, get over it, get rid of the mulch....good luck!!

please then tell us what to do!! I have some of these as well and I'm pretty sure they are just pure evil in mushroom form. I've been digging them up as best I can and waiting for summer to arrive. Nothing like the smell of rancid trash and death to meet you at the front door!

Has anyone ever encountered these wretched smelly mushrooms?
Do you know of any way to kill them?
We have been turning over the mulch & removing their golfball size eggs.

But they keep coming back !!!
I had two of these in the middle of my backyard lawn last summer. I had never seen them before. They were there for just a couple of days and then disappeared. The tips were covered with inky spores. But I didn't notice any odor and neither did my friends who were over for a picnic on the day the mushrooms appeared. Stinkless stinkhorns! (This is a photo from Google, but mine looked exactly like this.)

We put down new mulch last spring, and it came with a load of stinkhorns that popped up during our warm fall. Yuck! I did some research, and ended up just digging them up with a bag over my hand and throwing them in the trash. I felt this was the most environmentally friendly way to deal with it and no less effective than spraying. You have to get the "eggs" underneath the mulch so the horn doesn't come back. They are quite gross! Happy digging!

Wow, what a chore! It's a bummer that your mulch was infected (for lack of a better word) with those things. Better luck this spring, sushiqueen.
