same thing taht happens to other living organismas when they die. Chances are (if they are exposed to mold) that mold will grow on them. However, to be a sufficient food source for any coilony of fungi, you would most likely need an entire colony of dead bacteria. There isn't much bio mass to a single bacterium.
i hop this answers you question.

I am not sure of the exact size differentiation but aren't mold to big to grow on bacteria. I think when bacteria are killed or die then they are absorbed by whatever is around them. Perhaps even other bacteria absorbs the nutrients.
