mushroom turns into black dust

We have mushrooms that turn into black powder. Our questions are how can we get rid of the problem and will the dust spread

It is most likely Coprinus mushroom and its cap giving away the black stuff. These will not spread if moisture in the area can be kept low. This will also help in eradication.
