Can small hive beetle larvae climb well?
1. can they climb metal ducting materials?
2. can the climb smooth plastic?
3. can they climb upside down for more than 1 inch?
next, can small hive beetles pupate in a glass jar if given enough food, or, do they require some form of soil to pupate?
I am envisioning a simple trap- an open top 5 inch high box made of ductwork sheet metal, or fiberglass. if one were to place a beehive (base) inside the box, then when small hive beetle leave the hive to pupate, then perhaps they would be trapped, and die, yet, honey bees could fly out and escape with ease. But, this all depends on the abilities of the larvae- can someone run some tests, or have similar tests been run in the past? If this might work, we can open source and freely share the plans, and perhaps seriously impact the life cycle of this pest. Thank you.

WE HAVE A FIELD OF ALFALFA AND ORCHARD GRASS, THE FIRST TWO CUTTING THIS SPRING AND SUMMER WERE NICE HAY, BUT NOW AT THE END OF JULY, THE FIELD IS FULL OF JOHNSON GRASS. IT IS MUCH TALLER THAN THE ALFALFA. WE FEED THIS HAY TO OUR HORSES. WHAT CAN WE DO TO GET RID OF THE JOHNSON GRASS AND IS IT SAFE TO FEED THE HAY TO OUR HORSES?

The soil test for my lawn is here: http://www.msusoiltest.com/l/L82BB8 It says this: "Your soil test indicates you need to apply 3.7 lb. phosphate (P2O5)/1000 sq. feet and 1.2 lb. potassium (K20)/1000 sq. feet to meet recommendations." Then in the next paragraph is says this: "Your soil test indicates that phosphorus and potassium are adequate and no applications are necessary." So which recommendation should I follow?

is there anything you can add to pond water to make the water less attractive to wasps? We have hundreds coming for water on the wet rocks from spray from a small waterfall. At least I think they are wasps- yellow and black stripes. Thanks
Hello. We are in new construction and our chanticleer pear was planted before our grass. When we got our sod we watered daily for about 3 weeks and since the pear tree is right by the grass, it got watered tons as well (We didn't know then that overwatering was a pear sin). Once we found out we cut the watering way back. That was in early July and our tree still looks Ike this. Can we fix it?

My recipe for summer squash pickles call for 2 cups water and 1 cup white vinegar. I thought these liquids had to be 50/50 in order to be safe. This is from the "Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving"

They say drying hay is easy in Colorado but it's been fairly humid with more frequent rains than normal. It's my first time growing sorghum sudangrass for hay here and I'm wondering roughly how long I should expect to leave it to dry. Last night I cut it at about 30" with a mower conditioner and today we got a steady, light rain. It's going to be in the 80's for the next couple of weeks with more chances of rain. Any idea approximately how many days I should expect to dry it? I know it depends on the weather, but I'm just looking for a rough estimate or what other people shoot for. Thanks.

I have a Crape Myrtle Tree that is 20 ft. high and full of blooms.
I bought it from Pikes Nursery.
It's a very health tree.
A long flowery branch broke off the tree that's about 5 ft. long.
I put the broken end in a bucket of water and it's standing up straight against a metal post and in full sun.
Will this broken branch make roots in the bucket of water?
Can you tell me how to propagate a Crape Myrtle Tree from branches of my Crape Myrtle Tree?

Pruned large, healthy hydrangea bushes in Jan 2013. Plants have grown significantly and look healthy but no blossoms this summer. When should we prune to have blossoms next year? How heavily to prune? Bushes would be too large next year if not pruned. (Plants are probably bigleaf type - originally purchased at nursery in western Oregon.)
I lost two redbud trees last year. I've planted one new baby this year, what suggestions would you have to help these survive--things I need to do, etc. I've watered them frequently and just want them to survive. Anything else you would suggest?
Do you have a solution for squash bugs, stink bugs in the garden?
I have catnip in my garden. Can I dry it to give it to my cat?
Do pomeranian geese fly off? And if so, will they come back?
Our yard and patio is inundated this year with either box elder bugs or red shoulder bugs. We are not sure if there is a difference, but they seem to congregate around a large golden rain tree that is now in bloom. We have seen these bugs before but never in the numbers we are seeing this year. We are even starting to get them in the house. I hesitate to call an exterminator because I don't like poisons and I hear they are pretty harmless, but am getting pretty freaked out by the huge numbers I am seeing. Do I need worry? Will they go away on their own? We are seriously thinking of cutting down the tree they seem to like.

Is adding diatomaceous earth to my garden soil OK?

about a month ago, my husband (trying to help of course...) sprayed our entire garden with Bayer 3-in-1 pesticide, fungicide and mite control which is not to be used on edible plants. when i called the 1-800 number on the product they said that we could not eat anything out of the garden for an entire growing season. I have since then talked with two local garden supply centers who have said that that product should be completely out of the system in 30 days and that anything that produced vegetables after 30 days would be fine to eat. They stated that the company just doesnt want to take any chance of being liable so that is why they say that. Do you agree? We pulled up the broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, lettuce - anything that already had produced vegetables at the time it was sprayed, but we are hoping to salvage the corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, squash, cucumbers, and beans that are just now starting to have starts on them. Please advise. It was only a one time application and was diluted with water, and it was 30 days ago.
I have followed the instructions for California Avocado Web site. As of now it has been more than two months that I have avocado seeds on my window kitchen sill, but has grown quite a bit of a root system. The only thing is that the seed is split in two, but has not spouted a stem from the top side, which should make ideal to plant on soil.
Please advise me on what to do next.
