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.

Soil treament for clay based lawns/blue grass in Colorado Springs

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?

biting bug living in chair?

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?

What is attacking these young Japanese maples?

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)?

How can you kill and not just wound Japanese Knotweed?

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?

chlorosis in year old fruit trees

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.

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!)
