Now that all of my fruit is picked, how can I prevent these NASTY little bugs from returning next year? Are they now in the dirt under my tree?

We are canning Bartlett pears tomorrow (Monday, 8/26/19). I have a quick question. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. My question: I have a commercial-sized Weck water bath canner (an electric canner made in Germany that was constructed for American electrical needs). It is tall enough to can two layers of pint-sized jars. In order to can a second layer of jars, I need a spacer so that the jars are not sitting directly on top of each other. I have not been able to find a second round Weck canning rack. I also have an old-style canner that I used to use on top of my stove. Even though my old canner's rack is not as wide as my weck, can I use and fill my old rack on top of my first layer of filled jars?

I recently found this plant growing in a raised bed. I have never seen anything like it, with these berries. I am most curious about the berries: are they good for birds or poisonous?
I saw this question - https://ask.extension.org/questions/591750
I was awaiting the response, since I have seen these "spheres" below my oak tree as well.
Could they possibly be a gall that turns into a "smoke puff"?
I'll watch for more beneath my oak tree.

I have a tree or large bush growing on the side of my yard. Gets pretty much full sunlight. It's been getting huge and I want to be able to identify it so I can figure out how to prune and cut it back. I took a picture of the leaves. It hasnt flowered in the 1.5 years I've been here

This grass is invading my lawn and I would like to know what I can do to eliminate it.
Can you tell me what this flower is? I’ve included a picture of the bud and the bloom. Is it a hibiscus?

This tree is starting to show up in our wind break. What kind is it? Should it be encouraged or discouraged? Thank you!

I have a raised 4 by 12 foot raised bed that has been half bush beans and half carrots. I am considering a crop of carrots and some lettuce for the fall. How would you suggest I amend and prepare the soil? I realize that the bean half is likely nitrogen rich at this point. Also any additional crop choices would be appreciated. Thanks, Wes Denton
