Mulching Norwegian Maple Leaves

How much mulch can my minimal fescue space tolerate under 60+ year old Norwegian Maples. Need info for committee meetings early next week. I am a K-Club 4 H er. We are in an urban environment. While I support composting and mulching, we will need to cut down our trees if they enforce mulching here. We have mulched grass for some time. Please send me any research you have for this situation and when steep slopes are the property as well. Mulching info is being misapplied.

I found this thing curled up on the floor of my living room. I've never seen anything like this before and am so grossed out. Please tell me what this worm thing is.

I live in Portage County. This summer I started getting 2-pronged bites on my hands, arms and face while a slept. Exterminators came and sprayed for spiders and carpet beetles. A specially trained bed-bug-sniffing dog went though the house, too. Nothing was found. The problem went away for a few months, but I am starting to get bit again. No one - not even the exterminators - really know what this is. Do you know what this may be and how to completely exterminate it from my house?

Specific plant search

I am looking for the following to plant in the Spring and need some help since most of my landscape experience is from Vermont. Any help is much appreciated.

1. Evergreen vine (need a vine 8-30' feet long, never losses it's foliage so that it is a privacy barrier all year round, if not possible for evergreen then a summer flowering vine, 4' fence to wire extender = trellis)

2. Flowering bush part-full shade (would be planted on the north side of a Siberian Elm, 4-8' high and 4-5' in width, Rhododendron?)

3. Flowering bush part sun - part shade, mid day - afternoon sun (planted on the west side of the house, 5-10' high and 5-8' in width, summer/fall flowering)

4. Flowering bush full sun - part sun, mid morning - afternoon sun (planted on the south west side of the house, LARGE bush, 6 - 12' high and 4-8' in width, summer or fall flowering)

5. Small accent plants to place in between Spring bulbs and larger flowering bushes could be foliage only, grasses, evergreens, etc.

posible sick cow

We slaughtered a beef and when we skinned it there were little blood blisters all over. Not in the meat but on the under side of the skin. My dad said they looked like blue berries. Can you help me.

Raising last Christmas's poinsettias (one white, one red) inside after they spent the summer flourishing outside. (We've been covering them the last few weeks for 16 hours per day with black garbage bags to help them bloom). Leaves are showing signs of new insect damage (see picture) and we're seeing a few small, green leggy bugs on the leaves (sorry, none available for photo). Any suggestions on controlling these? Would putting the plants back outside on above-freezing cold days kill the bugs off without damaging the plants?
