Black Mold/Mildew

I live in the southeastern US and I have recently(2 weeks ago) harvested some bamboo. The bamboo had some black mold/mildew on it and I was wondering what would be the best way to remove it. Here are a few pictures, I don't know how to make them show up in the post, but I attached them. Sorry about the blurrieness. I will try to take some better ones later. Thanks

Hi, your pics didn't upload. You can try again if you like.

Are the poles harvested ones that dried in the grove?

Here's another post discussing Treatment against mold/mildew stains on bamboo

Mold treatment

I recently imported a container of bamboo fences into New Zealand and every fence was covered in technicolor molds. I waterblased each fence and sprayed it with 20% benzalkonium chloride. We then stored the bamboo undercover for 3 months. To date all the bamboo sprayed with this shows no trace of mold.

Once the fence is completely dried and most of the sugars have broken down then the mold problem should reduce. Bamboo with high moisture content will continue to get mold.

Another effective chemical is propiconazole.
