Is this a carpenter ant?

Hi Everyone! I have a few dozen ants in my sunroom that are huge, winged and slowly crawling around and dying. They're hanging around an old wooden table and chairs and I'm trying to figure out if they're carpenter ants and the best way to deal with them. I've attached pictures. If there are less toxic ways to deal, I'd love to hear suggestions! Any insights are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

We have several large areas of creeping bentgrass in our yard. We tried killing it off several times using Roundup, it looked like we got it all. We even cut the sod out with a sod cutter and replaced it. It keeps coming back, and seems to be spreading.Do you have any suggestions? We probably need to aerate our lawn, we have clay soil, but I am afraid that the bentgrass will spread more. We have lived in this house for 20 years and have been fighting this grass the whole time. The previous owners said it is different grass and it greens up later. That was not totally correct. We need HELP>

Fertilize or spray my apple tree?

I moved into my house last year. I know the old overgrown apple tree had not been pruned, sprayed, or fertilized for at least 4 years. As soon as we could, we did emergency pruning, even though the tree was blooming. To our surprise, we still had a bumper crop of apples (too high to harvest so we picked them up after they fell). In February we had professional pruning, cutting the height way down. Now I am planning to fertilize, using an auger to take the fertilizer below the grass. I know the general area to fertilize, but I can't find info on how far apart to drill the holes, how deep, and how much to put in each hole. The leaves are large and healthy looking, so do I even need to fertilize? We didn't do any spraying during the winter. Is there any spraying I should do this time of year?

Unwanted bumblebee's nest

I've started cleaning out my vegetable garden to get ready for this planting season. I've uncovered a handful of bumblebees while turning over the soil, and I suspect there is a nest. I've got a cat, two children under the age of 2, and I myself am allergic to bee stings, so I, unfortunately, have to get rid of this. Any recommendations? Thanks
