Hi! I am wondering how to control black beetle bugs on my raspberries. They have tannish spots on them and seem to get into the fruit so when picking the fruit they are often times inside the hollow of fruit. My guess is when the fruit is so ripe it tends to almost come off the stem and that is when they crawl in? I have been spraying with "Garden Safe Fungicide 3" which is an Organic Fungicide, Insecticide and Miticide in one. I have tried to spray once every week or two but the bugs are still present. I have two patches that will still bare fruit this fall so I hope to control these bugs soon. I welcome any suggestions you may have! Thanks for your time.

I have a blue grass/clay based soil lawn and live at 6500 ft. in Colorado Springs, CO. In addition to fall fertilization (late Sept. - early Nov), I've also heard that it is good to treat lawns with a soil conditioner. Does this really help and if so, where does one buy soil conditioners you can spray on?

For a couple of weeks, people have been getting itchy insect bites in our house, but only when sitting on a particular upholstered chair. The chair is near an air conditioner, and the first bites were on the upper arms, so I thought maybe a cold-preferring flying insect. But lately the bites have been mostly on ankles, some on knees. I am concerned that perhaps a biting bug has taken residence in the chair. Do you have any advice regarding how to figure out what is going on, and also how to stop it?
Our neighbor has two young Japanese maples that are being attacked by insects, apparently. Leaves of one are perforated by small holes, and the second tree (about 4 feet tall) is now nearly leafless. I looked at the trees today, but saw no active insects. What do you think is the problem--and suggest solution(s)?
Could you tell me why the apples on my honeycrisp tree are hard and bitter still. They are big and look ready but they are hard and bitter. Don't know what we are doing wrong.
Japanese Knotweed laughs at commercial weed killers like round up, even if you use a high concentration.
I tried many other so-called vegetation killers, tough brush poison, ground clear, etc. and they have hardly any results.
Home Remedies proved worthless. Digging out every root and tuber did not work.
Is there anything I can do to permanently destroy this weed?
Is there any car chemical or something that would work?
Can you call someone from the state to kill it?

My in-laws have two tomatoes growing on a dahlia plant. They live in Austin, MN. Are they really tomatoes? If they mature, are they edible? How and why did this happen? They do not have a vegetable garden. The dahlia was bought at a garden center and planted in their landscaping.
I have a 30 minute window at the end of each day wherein the lighting permits me to observe plants 'spitting'. Can you tell me what this phenomena is called? kind regards, Kevin Gillette Irvine, CA 888-866-3377 x122 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vqhv-HgOt8

I have beautiful geraniums and know that their days are numbered. Is there a way to keep them over winter in the garage and then bring them out in the spring? We live in Lakewood, CO. Thank you for the help. Nancy Porter
It was found in Deephaven, Minnesota.
I have several one year old fruit trees that have chlorosis symptoms. I have heard that there is a "Tree Team" that will come on site and look at problems with trees. If this is true, how would I contact them?
The soil pH is 7.6 and according to the soil test, all trace elements and P and K are adequate.
I suspect watering problems and lack of oxygen to the roots.
What should I use to kill the clover and creeping Charlie in our Arden hills, Clay soil yard? Also, how long should I wait after that application to put down new dirt and reseed? Thanks!
In my yard I have a few smaller smaller swales. I would like to plant something in them that would still allow it to retain as much water as possible. Preferably having the plants be edible. Any suggestions?

I read that Aceria malherbae, the bindweed gall mite, can be effective for control of the horribly invasive Convolvulus arvensis, Bindweed. Bio-control programs have been launched in Colorado and Texas. Is this bio-control available in Oregon? Can I get on a test program? Can I purchase it? Thanks Hugh Prichard Eugene, Oregon

My beautiful 7-year-old white lilac tree has lost a great many of its leaves, starting in late July here in New England. The leaves turn brown and simply drop off. Whole branches are denuded now. What in the world is happening to it? (My tree guy suggests virticellum wilt, but I don't think this is it). Could the tree be reacting to the horrible winter we had in New England last year??? I DO see buds on those empty branches. But the leaf drop has been gradual and is now nearly complete (and it's not fall yet). Help? (Though how you could even guess at this is a mystery to me!)
With all our rain, circles of mushrooms are coming up in the yard. How can I get rid of them?
