Is there any kind of safe, natural, organic way to kill this fungus? Neither my dogs nor people have contracted this yet, but I just cleaned out my brooder and I've had the chicks (3-2 mo old) right in a heavy traffics grass area right outside my back door. my dogs are always sniffing and peeing around this area too. Is there any kind of safe, natural, organic way to kill this fungus? Maybe something I can spray over the grass?? And then what happens when we cut the grass?!?!! Ahhh! Help!!!

Sorry, don't know much about histo, but I can tell you my dogs have eaten gallons of chicken poop in their days....and to eat it they had to get close enough to breathe it...........never had a sick dog.

Is the CDCs PDF files for working in contaminated environments. It is also called Ohio River Valley Disease, and living in Ohio, have heard of it and it is something they warn about, but can not remember ever knowing anyone who actually had a bad case of it. They say that around 90% of the people who live in an area where it is endemic test positive for exposure to it, but it generally does not cause problems in healthy people.
