Waxy stunted leaves on my greens

WATER EVERGREEN DURING WARM SPELLS IN MID-WINTER?

Hello,
We planted several evergreen shrubs last September. We are now in mid-Winter, when daytime temperatures would typically be 5 F or colder, but we've been getting spells of 50 F and warmer, with sunshine, during the day (falling back well below freezing at night).
Would it be advisable to provide any water to the evergreen foliage at this time?
(The shrubs were well watered right up until the big freeze. The roots have been protected with shredded bark, and a burlap screen provides protection to some of the shrubs.)
We'd be very grateful for you advice.
Thanks very much.

Underground Exterminator

I found this product online at http://www.undergroundexterm.com/molespecies.html while searching for a way to rid my garden of moles. This product uses carbon monoxide from a vehicle to kill underground pests. My questions are: Is this product safe to use in an organic vegetable garden? Would it render my vegetables non-organic, or harm them in someway? If not, could you please tell me the best way to eliminate Moles and underground pests from my lawn and garden? Thanks

How do we get rid of stink bugs in the house?

Our home has been over-run with Halyomorpha halys, better known as, stink bugs. Is there any way to rid our home of these? Someone told us to sprinkle Diatomaceous Earth around our window sills, etc. But my husband and I noticed that on the bag there is a warning about eye irritant with that product. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Last fall they were swarming our home and during the winter we see them everywhere inside.

Have a lovely untreated ornamental apple that is going into a 3rd year of "scald or scab"? After 2 yrs of leaves dropping early, was told to begin spraying while tree is dormant this spring. Will likely have a tree service do this BUT I have 3 dogs who walk within the spray line of this tree. The tree can die from this (although I much prefer NOT to lose it) BUT MY BELOVED DOGS cannot die or be affected in any way. Is there any effective product that will not harm my dogs?
