Please help! I am freaking out because I found about 4 dead ones of these in my basement. I think it may be a cockroach or a ground beetle. My house is about 115 years old and has a small damp basement in which I run a dehumidifier constantly. I have only seen these bugs dead along the one wall in the basement that is close to the drain and I have not seen them on the main floor of the house. Please help before I loose my marbles. Thank You! Candace Nelson

The little sproutling conifer (?) popped up in my yard this spring. It seems happy enough in semi-shade, but I wonder whether I could move it elsewhere, as its one-time location was in a planting box close to our house foundation. The two photos show its overall aspect and size [the container is a gallon-sized pot] and the character of its foliage. I'd like to know its identity, growth habits, mature size expectation,etc., in the event it can be transplanted to a more suitable location. Many thanks for your assistance.
I have large hornets eating the bark off my 3 Ash trees this year. Only on the branches, not the trunk. No nests. Never seen this before. They aren't phased by hornet spray. What should I do? I'm in zip code 21087. Sorry the pictures are fuzzy. Thanks
Can I pick up and move my hollyhocks now? If I do this should I cut the plant down a little before I move it?

These are (bur?) oaks I grew from acorns gathered in D.C. They were transplanted from pots a year ago to our yard in Tilghman Island. Over the summer, they developed two different problems. 1. One has deformed looking bark - that started out normal-looking but has gotten oddly ridged on its branches and trunk -- (although the newest growth looks normal). 2. The second tree has white moldy-looking stuff on its leaves. Looking for info on the problems and on possible solutions? Thank you!
I have some tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs. When should I plant them? I live in Southern Maryland. Thanks.
I don't know anything about bugs, insects, and pests. Recently, I have been having a problem with some form of insect on and around me. They are barely visible to the naked eye. I have been able to use a good phone camera to get some images. Would something this small be an insect, or a micro-organism and where would I get help getting rid of them? Dr said they were not lice, scabies, or other usual human parasite, but treated with Nix anyway. It didn't help. Looking for guidance on where I can find help

I just bwb canned pickled beet slices with a ratio of 1:1:1/8 cup vinegar:water:pickling salt ( because it is what I remember doing last year but maybe it was different...and I don't like to add sugar) and realized while it was processing that I didn't check. Am I going to need to store these in the refrigerator?
Can anyone identify this type of large spider? Found outside my home, about 40 miles west of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Thank you.
By the way, sorry it's not a close-up, but I wasn't getting any closer to it than that!

Located just East of Grass Valley O.R.P. is the largest race track in Oregon. Now in our 9th year we are continuing to develop the facility. We have two large new areas that have been graded and are in bare dirt that we would like to stabilize and plant with grass. Their use is for tent camping and parking areas. We have a 15' Toro Mower (golf course type) and need a hearty and traffic resistant grass that will hold up with a minimum of care. What can you recommend?
A huge potato plant has grown since June and recently quit blooming. Plant is still green and healthy - any chance of potatoes beneath? Should I let it continue to grow and hope for no frost?

Many maples have been cut down because of of phone lines in my neighborhood. What should we be planting to replace them in this area? Would a jujube tree work in the Prince Georges area? Smaller and great fruit I hear. I welcome other ideas. Thanks, my local nursery shut down.
All of my rose bushes have gone through a big growth spurt since I trimmed them back in August. Plus they are all blooming again. They are now way too tall to go in to winter. Can I still cut them back at this time of year? If so how much can I cut? Thank you for your help.

We have lived in Clear Lake for 25 years with 2 walnut trees. This is the first year that I can remember in which the majority of fallen walnuts are black and mushy. What could be the problem? Thanks.

Hello I was told that if these are the bees you want to keep, you will come out and remove them ..
How can I kill them? They are taking over my lawn.
Hello, I'm trying to figure out why our white pines are dropping needles. My research has led me to believe it's just early annual needle drop, jump started from drought stress. Could this be anything else? Thanks,
We have three Aspen trees in our front yard. The roots are spreading and sending up shoots all over the lawn. I have talked to three landscapers and every one of them told me that the only solution is to remove the trees. I hate to cut down large trees! Is there any other way to solve our problem?
