native grasses/plants for Grand Lake area

We recently purchased a home in the Grand Lake area. The yard appears to have a variety of native grasses and plants but also has quite a few bare areas. I would like some help identifying the invasive plants/weeds to get rid of and would also like some help on selecting a native seed mix and timing for planting. Also, are there any extension staff in the area?

County Arborists

Hello:
Do you know if Jefferson County has a county arborist that I could contact about Pine Beetle problems? Or is there a person in Jefferson county, or the state, that I could contact about tree removal on County / State property - or is that someone a person at CSU in the extension? I am trying to keep up with the beetle infestation here in South Evergreen but if the right of way areas are not cleared out we going to loose many more trees than we would otherwise - I believe. Any help or direction would be gratefully welcomed. Thank you

cherry maggots

For the first time in 20 years I have found maggots in both the Stella and sour backyard cherry trees. I live in a marine town, Port Townsend, on the Olympic peninsula in WA State. Should I destroy all the remaining fruit on the trees and do I have to be careful with the fallen cherries. Thanks Richard Thomas

never-ending comfrey

We planted comfrey a couple of years ago and loved it initially, until we realized that it was going everywhere. We grabbed out the roots of the excess areas, thinking that it would act like most, normal perennials and it continued to expand it's borders. Thinking that this was more trouble than it was worth, we decided to get rid of it and plant another plant. Well, the darn thing won't die. We have diligently removed what we thought was "every last bit" at least four times and now we realize that we need help. We have taken the bed down about 8-10 inches down in the area and have the dirt on the driveway on plastic with plastic on top. We don't want to "infect" other peoples gardens, either. Any ideas? Thank-you so much....Anita and Michael Bouutette P.S. It's fine to share the question and answers.

Identify an ant and ways to get rid of them

These ants have been finding their way into our house for months now. They are very small, mostly brown, with a lighter-colored (or perhaps transparent) abdomen. They seem to be attracted to sugar. They have ignored every bait we've tried to use on them, even when I tried to mix the bait with corn syrup (they liked the syrup, but wouldn't touch any of it that had been mixed with bait).

Most of the time they come from a light socket, but occasionally they'll come in from a hole that leads outside. I have found lines of them outside, but I've never been able to trace the line back to a colony - I always lose track of it somewhere.

Anyway, I'm interested to know what kind of ants they are, as I haven't had much luck trying to look them up myself. Better yet, a bait or extermination method that actually works on them would be appreciated as well.

Honeydew Secretion

We have a tree in our back yard (not sure what type) that has been in place for a number of years. The problem is a honeydew secretion caused by aphids (so I have been told). It is a sticky substance (almost like syrup) that gets on everything under the tree and around the immediate area. It is really a nuisance. I've been told that there are other trees in our area with the same problem.

Is there some reason that this shows up all of a sudden, and what if anything can be done to take care of it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank You
