What is causing a problem with my strawberries?

I have an abundance of strawberries on everbearing plants, but most are soft not firm when ripe. Can I treat the plants, or should I simply trash them?

We planted two Haralson apple trees about 8-9 years ago at my farm home. By the fourth year and on we had incredible crops of healthy unblemished fruit, by simply hanging a bottle of apple cider vinegar in the trees.However, the last two years, the apples start out looking fantastic and then start to get somewhat mishapen. When it comes to harvest, they look like this. Almost like fruit looks when it gets frozen in the refrigerator. But we have not had a frost

My Mugo pine shrub in fromt of my house is filled with Yellow Jackets, Paper Wasps, Flies and some white and black striped bees. I do not see a hive and had Plunkets look at it, he has never seen anything like it. He only put a bee catcher out, the bees are not interested in it as they are getting what they want from the shrub. There are areas turning black and kind of a mold at the end of the branches. I think it may have a fungus and it is attracting the bees. Should I have the bees sprayed and then treat the fungas with something? I have uploaded a video of the bees. I can't figure out how to change my video to jpg or something else. If you would like me to forward it to you please send me your email address. Thanks!

Is there any state program that could help with a chigger infestation on our farm in Bozman. Is this a county or statewide issue?? Ticks are bearable but the 'chigger challenge' is not.

birch replacement

I have three birches ( not sure which) maybe paper birch, not weeping. All in my neighborhood are dying as are mine. After I have them removed can I plant new ones of the same variety/ or are they going to have the same problem? I am looking for a replacement (3) which have that open fluttery type leaf.
