Slime mold?

Asked September 13, 2017, 5:54 PM EDT

Hello, We found this nastiness in our vegetable beds. It has the consistency of wet bread or wet cheez whiz. What is it and what can we do to either get rid of it or prevent it in the future. Thanks!

Without a photo it's hard to tell, but perhaps you can confirm from these https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=slime+mold+treatment&qpvt=slime+mold

there is really no effective treatment (I've had some in my yard and it just dries up). This from Univeristy of Minnesota: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/diseases/slime-molds/
