Is it true that artillery fungus spores that attack the house will damage and grow on the painted wood cedar shingles. Winter is just about here and for some reason I have acquired artillery fungus. The front of the house and my car are covered with little black spots that are hard to get off - just about impossible on the house. It may be my imagination but it looks like little brown pit marks where I think I got it off. I am 71 with osteoporosis and unable to shovel the cedar mulch away from the house. I am in Massachusetts and shouldn't fungus be dormant this time of year. I am more worried about the house than the car at this point. If I paint over it will the spores stay dormant?
Please help as I read it does not harm vinyl siding but I can not find anything regarding wood shingles.
