Asparagus Weeds

We have an asparagus patch that is 60' x 20'. The patch is filled with wild carrots. We have tried 2-4-D Amine, which looks like it's going to work, but then the wild carrots come back even worse! Is there anything we can do to eliminate the wild carrots? Thank you.

Healthy plants seem to have leaves that are slightly shriveled, they are getting water.
Rumors point to recent winds.

Hornets & Wasps Attracted to Yellow Trumpet Vine

Hi,
I have two yellow trumpet vines, about 3 years old, growing on a chain link fence in my back yard. They are attracting a number of different looking bees and wasps, one of which I think is a "bald-faced hornet". It's large and black and thick rather than skinny like a wasp. Anyway I haven't been stung, knock on wood. I understand the importance of these insects in our environment, so I wanted to check with you first: should I remove the trumpet vine? In addition to the wasp issue, I've read the plant can be invasive, although perhaps the yellow variety is less aggressive. I haven't seen any suckers in my yard yet.

Aside from removing the vines, do you have any other guidance to control the wasps or deter them from my house? I'll add that the wasps seem somewhat aggressive - pruning back the plant doesn't seem to be an option as at least one or two of the wasps will start flying at me. My husband went around the house and found a few small wasp nests, which he destroyed. A few days ago I was trying to do some work on my patio during the afternoon, and wasps kept getting curious about what I was doing and coming over (I was washing my shower doors and I think they were attracted to the water puddles).

Thank you!

Root cutting on 80 year old Elm tree

Hi, I wonder if you could let me know if I can let someone cut a root or top a root on an old Elm tree in the old T-Gap and Fillmore area. The root has erupted through the asphalt and my tenant wants to take out the asphalt and clip the root. It is a humongous tree and if it died, it has nowhere to go but on two adjacent roofs, so I am not keen on disturbing it. The root went through the asphalt a long time ago and much of it is visible above ground. Tree is relatively healthy, but being an elm, it is very messy and drops branches and twigs constantly. It is way higher than the 2 story duplex next to it.
There are also several roots erupting through the asphalt driveway that they just drive over everyday but this is an old Blue Spruce. They haven't asked to remove that yet.

Under the old elm tree, my tenant is having a terrible time getting lawn to grow, even though he reseeds and tends it well. Not enough sunlight? He thinks he can put in good dirt this summer and raise the area and put in sod and that would thrive. I am skeptical. I don't want him to waste his money. I know there is shade seed. Would that work?

Thank you so much for your time. '
Sincerely, Debbie LaBarre
