I have a peach tree that appears to have an insect problem. There are two spots on the tree that are affected. When it's wet out the tree oozes a thick, brownish jelly-like substance with no noticeable smell. Yesterday I noticed skin that was shed by a bug sticking out of the area (photos are attached.) What is the best way to get rid of these insects and help my tree get healthy again. Thank you
I am a member of a church which borders 26th Street in Sioux Falls. Because this is a main though street its adjacent boulevard receives heavy salt and other chemical residue spray each winter. As a result this grass boulevard, 8' wide by 450' long, between the street gutter and sidewalk must be reseeded each growing season. By code, landscape rock is not an option. Have you a suggestion; annual rye, buffalo grass; etc. which would be attractive but more tolerant of the winter hazards? Of course the preference is for a perennial.

The attached picture is of a diseased phlox leaf. The owner said the same thing happen last year and this year the phloxes came back health and strong and the same thing happen. She said there was some shinny stuff on the underside of the leaf which does not appear in the picture. I don't think it is mildew but in my humble opinion, it could be the resolve of an herbicide. Your expert opinion is needed.

I have 2 Ash trees in my yard in the north part of Broomfield and have detected a couple of bores in the tree and would like to know how to treat them. I also have detected some leaves that are curling up and suspect a treatment of some sort is necessary. I have used a Spectracide Insect killer as a spray and also a Bayer product - Tree and Shrub product that seems to have worked as far as a leaf treatment but not sure of the bore in the trunk. Would like your advice and thank you very much.

Our community is working to establish a butterfly friendly garden. Unfortunately, we have an existing deer herd that's defoliating asters, sunflowers, etc.
A resident master gardener recommends using Irish Spring soap bars to deter the deer.
However, we do not want to discourage the butterflies.
Q) Is there a better alternative to this method?
Q) If so, what do you recommend?

Where can I take a soil sample at MSU to test for heavy metals, specifically arsenic and mercury? I am farming in the city of Lansing, and am leasing several lots, one of which has not yet been tested for heavy metals. The woodland near the arable untested lot has high levels of arsenic, I have been told.

I have seedlings of Burpee Chrysanthemum Robinson Red, the package says heirloom (amazon sells the same seed packet that I planted - http://www.amazon.com/Burpee-Flower-Chrysanthemum-Robinson-Heirloom/dp/B006X566Q8). I cannot find more info on this plant.. I want to know if it is the synonymous with mammoth red daisy - though the height is larger for mammoth (which is available at the burpee online site as a potted plant - http://www.burpee.com/perennials/chrysanthemums/garden-mum-mammoth-daisy-red-prod002463.html). In the same vein, when I use search term mammoth mum, I get a pdf, which offers a yellow mum that is very similar to the yellow quill I got last year. Is the yellow quill the improved version, or did they eventually gave it a fancier name?

Hello, my raspberry patch has several problems going on right now. The leaves are getting eaten, I have found green worms with black heads, curled up gray leaves and something like spur blight..with the small new branches folding over in half. Some do have the dark purple ring through the stem. I also am going to send a soil sample in this week. A couple of years ago I took out all the lawn in my back yard and built a garden for which I had dirt brought in several times. The last batch of dirt brought in was very sandy and also it developed a green algae type color to it when it was wet. I will attach several photos of different issues, I can get more of any you might need. Last week I used a organic 3 in 1 called organicide. It seemed to work a little on the blight but I still have lots of bugs. Including what looks like a lady bug, but I think it had only one spot on each wing. I will have to send additional photos when you reply to me. I can't seem to load more than one at a time. Thanks for your help, again. Shelly

One of my 4 green ash trees is starting to drop leaves....not seriously so far. However, most of the remaining leaves have yellow spots as shown in the photo. Leaves on the ground are bright yellow and have brown spots. I'm unable to upload more than a single photo. Do recognize this disease? Can it be treated? If so, with what?This is a young tree ~15-20' tall and can be easily sprayed with fungicide or other remedy.
I have 4 green ash trees; one is shedding leaves. Most of the leaves have spots as shown in the attached photo. When the leaves drop they turn bright yellow and the spots turn brown. Is this something that can be treated? If so, then with what? A fungicide? Insecticide? The leaf loss seems evenly distributed around the tree; topmost branches seem no harder hit th
