My row of foundation yew taxus have a black powder on inner branches. There are a few brown leaves on tips of branches, which I pruned. I also fertilized bushes with holly tone. What should I use for the black powder? The yews look reasonably healthy except for two bushes, which are about 1/3 to 1/2 height apparently due to deer nibbling over the harsh winter. The nearby azalea tips have also been nibbled by deer. Are those deer pellets one buries in dirt effective against deer (the ones that enter roots to make plants undesirable to deer). What about sprays or other treatments to dissuade deer? Thank you!

It is April and I see a number of bag worm bags hanging on my evergreen trees. Are they from last year, or new ones already this year? What, if anything, should I do about the bags, especially if they are from last year? Would anything live be in them? What do you recommend that I do with any new ones for this year? Thanks.
