Wild Mushroom popping up, is it dangerous?

Hi everyone. We incorporated it into our lawn decoration s but I'm concerned should be dangerous? Any ideas? Thanks.

Unless you or your critter(s) eat it, it shouldn't be any danger. Might even be edible but you'd want the opinion of an expert.

When it comes to mushrooms ... and YOUR lawn / property
Better to err on the side of caution and remove them
(Even though your creative use of lawn decor is quite nice)

Last thing you want to happen is have a curious kid or pet
(Esp someone else’s in the neighbourhood)
Take a nibble

Then it would be YOUR BIGGEST NIGHTMARE

Along with the kids parent

As like when there’s a dog bite (and no dog ... to find out if it had rabies)

The med team would probably also err on the side of caution and put the kid / pet ... thru some anti poisonous regime
And of course then be QUICK to blame you for the entire fiasco

Just do the right thing
Keep the cute photos ... but remove the mushrooms

That is my inclination, to also keep the Smurfs healthy!

Well, you DID invite them by putting out decoys.
Just pull them out if you are worried.

I don't think it is as bad you make it. I highly doubt some kid or pet would eat them (or at the very least, that they are highly toxic). I mean, there are mushrooms in public parks in cities as well as national parks. I don't see city employees destroying mushrooms in the parks where I live. You can often see them on tree stumps for example (I think in fact it would be bad for the environment to destroy them).

On your property, your lawnmower will destroy them anyway, this is not a big deal IMO. I can't see anyone getting blamed because there was a few mushrooms on his lawn, no judge will punish you for that.
Try not! Do or do not, there is no try...

I grew up being told that the toadstools that grow in lawns are not edible but poisonous to humans.

A little google search confirmed that most of what you see pop up in your lawn you should definitely not throw into your sautee pan.
