Grass Like Weed Infestation

A gentleman brought some thing and wire grass that has small seeds. He has it on his property in the Upper Peninsula in what he calls his deer field. He has used Round-up and other types of weed fighting chemicals, but nothing seems to kill it. He would like to know what kind of grass/weed it is and how to eradicate it.

Bee removal

I have some bees that have made a home in one of my deck posts - posts are 2 ft x 2 ft stucco coated. I would like to find a bee keeper that could come and take them rather than calling an exterminator to kill them. Do you have any contacts that could come and take the bees?

Scale infestation on ornamental orange tree

Our 39 year old ornamental orange tree developed leaf drop last Fall, at which time I discovered spider mites. I used Safer spray (pyrethrin and potassium salt of fatty acids) and the mites were gone after 5 weekly applications. The leaf drop continued and I found what appears to be a soft scale infestation (a row of scales on one branch, which I removed; black "spots" on the underside of some leaves; honeydew on some leaves). Most of the leaves have fallen and several secondary branches appear dead. Pyrethrins and soap are apparently recommend for scale. Should I do this? Should I cut the branches back? Any need to treat the soil in the planter? Please advise. We love our tree!

I found this rather large bug in the garden today and was wondering if it is related to Euphoria inda (Bumble Flower bug). I have a great image of one from last year but I can only include one image here.

Early on the my figs are fine. A couple of weeks after they start to ripen I notice little brown bugs coming out of the opening. Is there any way I can spray before the ripening begins to prevent these bugs from ruining my crop.

I live near Tyler, Texas.
