Small pod-like clusters in the soil about 1/6 – 1/3 of an inch in diameter, light brownish in color and eventually burst open to a grey clover-patterned interior. Started in a cluster of about 20-30 then spread to hundreds and are taking over my garden. I’m worried they’re releasing dangerous spores that could harm my 1-year-old dog, as I had a dog pass away from valley fever spores she inhaled from the soil. It has been raining quite frequently for Tucson, so I avoided watering my garden for a few days to try to kill them and risking my fruits and veggies dying but they’re still thriving. Any advice as to what they may be and how to get rid of them? Thanks
As far as the dog, I think you should look at the expert sites to try to find that out, or ask your vet if there is concern. But start w/the story above.
