Knock out rose

What are my knockout roses doing? Over the last several years I have noted that as the summer goes on the growth becomes more wild looking - the blooms get smaller and the stems get more thorny.

Strange bean plant!

I have found two or three strange bean plants popping up under my bird feeders. Often the seeds that fall will sprout and grow, however, as far as I can see, I have never seen these beans before in any bird seed that I have purchased... the kind of small plant has very rounded leaves and produces long thin beans. When the husks are opened, the beans inside are shaped like trapezoids! See attached photos.

We have found what appears to be grub worms as large as our hands on our property. They are white in color and have pincers. Any idea what they are and if they are harmful to my children? We've seen them as long as almost 3 inches and as fat as a quarter or slightly fatter.

Hardy pomegranate?

Hello, Can you recommend a hardy pomegranate? I have a sheltered location and wanted to give it a try. I saw that the cultivar "alley cat" pomegranate was on auction at the recent fundraiser at the Boone County arboretum, but I can't find out anything about this cultivar online with Google. I'm wondering if this could be an extra-hardy pomegranate; and if so where to obtain it!

Unknown animal in my home

Can you please help me identify what kind of animal is in my home? After hearing something moving things around under my kitchen sink I finally got the nerve to go look and found a pile of animal scat in the very far back corner. The cabinet doors are always shut so it was dark inside the cabinet. I have attached pics. I have four kids living in my home with me and am afraid one of their curiosities will get the best of them and someone is going to get bitten or sick. I want the creature out of here. I terrified of mice so even though we do not have any as you can see in my pics I do keep some sticky traps out just as a precaution lol. Thank you in advance.

Ornamental pear tree struck by a vehicle

A pear tree 15+ feet tall and about 8 years old was struck by a vehicle that lost control and veered into the yard. The bark was rubbed off in an area about 1.5 ft verically and about 1/3 of the way around the tree trunk. A lot of leaves and berries were shaken loose, but no branches were damaged. The tree was perfectly straight but now is leaning. The base is not uprooted at all, but the tree is firmly now in its leaning position. Will the tree suffer or be okay? Can I get it straightened? How should I go about doing that? Is there anything that should be done to help the area with the missing bark heal? Thank you!
