Pruning very old deciduous azaleas

I have many, what I believe are, exbury azeala...probably at least 50 yrs old that have had very sporadic pruning over the last 20 years. They need some care!! They are still absolutely gorgeous while blooming, but the rest of the year they look pretty sad. I'm very tempted to do a hard pruning but I would feel terrible if I killed them. On the other hand, maybe it would be better to take them out and plant new ones....Im in Roseburg Oregon and these azeala are west facing, on a drip system, and no shade. I have removed quite a bit of dead wood but have really not provided much else.

Can.a 50 year old WILLOW OAK very large limb be trimmed or cabled? It is now touching our roof! I have heard they do not like pruning & will die back. This is a memorial tree I planted 50 years ago and want to maintain its beautiful shape & keep healthy. Because limb is laying on roof... I need quick response! We also have some dead limbs in other places on the tree. I have a large Pear & smaller crabapple & memorial weeping cherry that we just discovered have FIREBLIGHT. What to do this time of year ( late October) ?

Thank you!

Woodworm flight holes in just purchased antique furniture

The antique dresser I just purchased has a lot of flight path holes. The owner advised the dresser came from her grandmother and she has not seen any activity in two years. Is it likely the beetles have left without laying additional eggs? My home is kept at 70 degrees or higher. Will that inhibit future development of larvae?

What are these bugs?

Hello! I have recently stumbled upon a group of these dead bugs and they keep coming back in clumps whenever I clean the area. For the life of me, I cannot figure out what these bugs are! I live in Southern California and hope that piece of information helps. I have attached some photos to aid with the identification of these bugs, thank you!
