Slime mold can be found growing atop organic decaying material (wood mulch in particular) when hot and humid weather is the norm (June – August).
When found growing atop wood mulch, slime mold can be easily removed by just scooping it up and throwing it away.
Try not to dispose of slime mold in your compost bin to avoid further possible on-site spread. Normal routine cultivation of wood mulch will keep slime mold growth at bay.
