  1. “Fungal” encompasses many avenues. Molds are part of the fungi kingdom (which also includes mildews), and if molds are your concern here are two websites that give daily accurate mold levels:

    http://www.epa.gov/epahome/commsearch.htm

    If your concern lies more in your garden, then pretty much any region in the country where it’s hot and humid, or warm and moist are breeding grounds for fungal plant diseases. Even warm to hot regions that may be relatively dry can still encounter fungal diseases in plants if the method of watering is overhead and especially if plants are overcrowded. Your best resource for determining what plant fungal diseases may be an issue in your area is to contact your local county extension office. Your resource is the Cornell University--here is their website for a local office near you. http://cce.cornell.edu/learnAbout/Pages/Local_Offices.aspx
    Good luck!
