Hello, I have a maple tree that is showing signs of something, and it is not good. It is what I call a "weed maple" but most likely it is a "soft maple". We bought it because we needed shade fast. This year it has been dropping its ends of branches with buds. Mostly it is bud drop, but there are also 3 to 5 inch ends of branches with buds dropping all over the yard and deck. Are we loosing the tree? Thank you.
We are developing a bolus to be given to cattle and would like to know what the diameter is of a cow's esophagus. What is the largest bolus that can be administered? Currently, our prototype is 50 mm (2 inches) at the widest part. Is this too wide?
When I went to fertilize my azaleas put in last year, I find the plastic ground cover all around. Will the fertilizer go through the plastic barrier when watered? There is deep soil on top of the plastic and I dug the fertilizer into that ground cover over the plastic.

We want to plant and improve our yard. We have lost most of what we had due to dogs, kids and increased water rates. What should we put with our soil, gypsum maybe? We plan on tilling the part that we will plant grass seed. Which brings up our other question. What is the best grass seed to plant? Thank you for any help you could give us.

I am on the board of a condo complex. One of the owners thinks a Cedar (Western Red) is too close to a building. It is aprox. 40 ft. tall and 1 ft 6 inch in diam. at chest height (4.5 ft). The tree is 5.5 ft from a foundation and 3 ft from a cement sidewalk. Neither show any sign of damage from the roots. Is this too close to the building. If this is too close then how long before we would need to remove. Branches do over hang a tile roof. Thanks Denton

I am the secretary for the Speaker Twp. Planning Commission. We are a very small rural farming commumity in the thumb.Our commission has been working on updated ordinances and there has been a lot of community concern about the gas & oil leasing we are seeing in our area and would like some information on what we as a community can do to protect our citizens and yet not be to restrictive with ordinances. We also as a Committee know very little about the fracking and well drilling. Any suggestions?? Would it be possible for an informational seminar to be held in our area on this topic? Thank You for your help. Lori Gingiloski Speaker Twp. Planning Commission

We are tearing up an old veggie box to install a new one and the wood is swarming with these. They look like lady bugs or lady beetles but some websites say stinkbugs. Last year we had a lot of assassin bugs in this vegetable garden (on tomatoes). What are these please?

Our entire lawn is being taken over by solitary "bees" which emerge from clay holes (which look like ant holes) in late March. They keep multiplying and are now in the backyard as well. They do not sting, but swarm low to the ground. We want to get rid of them but do not want to harm the birds and beneficial insects. HELP!! Thanks for your advice!

For years I have bought 20-pound bags of ground squirrel control pellets. Today I was told I can not buy a 20-pound bag without a permit (new law for Jan 2013). I can buy five 4-pound bags (at about twice the price) without a permit--a pretty big loophole. What agency issues permits?
I recently purchased soil called "poohyai" that has horse manure from Evangeline Downs in it. Didn't realize this until after I bought it. Now I question whether this is ok for my garden because of the steroids, antibodies that race horses are subjected to. I still have time not to put it in my garden. Please let me know. Thank you!
