Ants in basement

I have recently discovered an abundance of large (1\4 inch) brownish\reddish ants forming a nest with their numbers on the lower wall (about 3" up from the concrete floor) of my basement. They seem to be coming up between the expansion joint of the floor and the foundation wall. When the wall nest is disturbed they emerge in force both from that area and from beneath the expansion joint. I have set out common ant traps and placed gel bait in the area but they seem to just move location, although some do die while attacking the bait, they just move bits of the earth (containing the bait) away from their area instead of bring it down into their tunnels. Any ideas? Pardon the photo I had already disturbed the nest before realizing I could attach a photo.

Center rot in an older cedar elm

Phages

Do all viruses go through the lytic cycle? Can all viruses be called phages? My AP Biology teacher says it is so, but I read in our textbook "AP Edition Biology Seventh Edition" by Campbell/Reece on page 336 "The most complex capsids are found among viruses that infect bacteria, called bacteriophages, or simply phages." And then, on page 337 under "Reproductive Cycles of Phages", "Phages are the best understood of all viruses, although some of them are also among the most complex. Research on phages led to the discovery that some double-stranded DNA viruses can reproduce by two altenative mechanisms: the lytic cycle and the lysogenic cycle."

Watering/Feeding Orchids

Some very basic but important questions:
- Watering orchids, can I use plain Denver tap water (slightly warm or @ room temp)?
- When is the best time to feed 20-20-20 for Orchids? (resting, done blooming
for now).
- I didn't cut the bloom stem but allowed it to dry on plant (leaves are healthy green). To encourage blooms, how far down should I cut the dried stem - didn't cut back after last bloom faded?

I am interested in a 100 acre mountain side investment that was recently...

I am interested in a 100 acre mountain side investment that was recently clear cut and is now for sale. The question is: can a rolling steep hill side recently clear cut of native trees be reclaimed in Pike county for the dual purpose of putting a 1/3 into agriculture (soy beans/corn) and 2/3 cost effectively replanted with trees. What does it cost to clear an acre of clear cut waste material, including stumps? What does it cost to replant an acre of trees? What species of trees is most appropriate and likely to thrive in this area? How long would it take that species, or any species in particular to mature into a viable harvest? What is a reasonable and sustainable harvest per acre, not clear cut like the land assault that just occurred on this property?

Desprouting Seed Potatoes

When storing potatoes over the winter for spring planting, should sprouting potatoes be continuously desprouted or is it better to let the potatoes grow lengthy sprouts and plant them as such. It seems like taking the sprouts off repeatedly might sap the tuber of energy, but I have heard of old timers taking the sprouts off during the winter. Thank you for your time.

Transplanting trees in Bandon

I recently bought property *10 acres* south of Bandon but north of Port Orford. I have easements all over my property, mostly Bonneville Power Association, as their lines take the back 5 acres into easement. I want to remove starts of cedar, pine, and fir from the eased property and place those starts on the un eased property, where I want them to grow. Can I just go pull up the young trees after a rain and plant them with any expectation of survival? Do I need to dig them? Can I get trees thru Oregon state forestry service to plant on my acreage? At what cost? Do I have to dig the trees from the back property? BPA will have those tree starts mowed down by BPA crews in the next year maybe as long as two. I would like to save the trees, BPA will destroy them if I do nothing. I want some more cedar *port orford cedar* as it seems that it is blighted and my small stand on my property is dying. Need some good advise.
