Questions asked to this group

What kind of moth is this?

We found this unusual looking, very large moth resting on our new siding outside our front door this am. It looks like it has a body of a spider with wings. Any ideas what it could be? The wing span is 4” wide.

Washroom wall fly or moth?

An expert birder and butterfly photographer suggested to me that it can't be a moth since it only has one pair of wings!
This insect is frequently seen on washroom walls of both outdoor privy's and indoor washrooms!
I just assumed it was a fly until I took these photos and heavily cropped one!
I have posted this on my Flickr.com site: James Roderick McGillawee
Will appreciate your answer at your convenience, Thanx!!!

Two Questions

I have two questions about the AAE site:

1). What is meant by the "handling rate" and how is it determined?

2). When I respond to a question posed to me, I am having difficulty in putting an image (JPG) into my response. Is this possible and if so, how exactly do I do this?

Hello, My name is Steve Constable and I am a highly experienced digital...

Hello, My name is Steve Constable and I am a highly experienced digital marketing expert who has developed two online web marketing training courses to help entrepreneurs connect with new customers in both paid search and organic search engine traffic. The first course is in mastering Paid Search Administration and can be found here for purchase: https://ppctraining.co.education/details/ PPC Course Details: The Every Click is a Customer System will explain how to acquire the most customer clicks from paid search traffic and how to convert the greatest number of potential customers who visit a website into buyers of your product or service offering. The author Steve Constable has been working in the digital marketing space for over eighteen years and has developed a system from which one can glean the most quality, qualified traffic possible from every dollar spent on customer acquisition. Steve will teach you how to best leverage the open and available technology of Google Analytics, AdWords and Bing Ads to reach out to the largest segment of online customers with your pay per click budget. He has developed powerful theoretical keyword delineation techniques which can work to filter out the unwanted paid search traffic which seeks only information and has no intent to purchase the product or service offering. With the information contained in this PPC and web analytics tracking book you can dramatically increase your revenue and cut out wasted paid search spend. It will also cover usability design techniques which will greatly improve your page design and win over more potential customers. Steve will also explain how to identify a customer persona identity from Google analytics and how to build a page design which will best appeal to this target customer. From start to finish Steve layers the steps one must take to successfully navigate through deep digital marketing waters and come out with a website design and paid search and web analytics configuration which will consistently be a success year after year. The second course is in mastering Search Engine Optimization and can be found here for purchase: https://seoeducation.co.business/details/ SEO Course Details: The Five Pillars of SEO gives entrepreneurs the ability to protect their company domain names from Google penalties and provides a system of how to predict future algorithm changes based on the concept of critical mass. It identifies five core areas of SEO: relevance, authority, site speed optimization, user experience design, and security and what is the general hierarchy of importance of each of these core areas of SEO to search engines such as Google today. Most important of all it provides an in-depth analysis of how to leverage each core SEO area to the maximum to power your company website above your competitors! It also provides insight on how to better manage your SEO projects so that your SEO campaigns can have clarity and focus. It also provides advice on how to hire the right SEO company and what protective measures you can take to insure your company's website domain name maintains a trusted reputation with the search engines (and is safe from the work of the company you hire!). With Google and other search engines cracking down hard on SPAM it has never been a more important time to ensure that your company website is protected from SEO penalties and is the kind of website Google and other search engines would gladly list on the first page. And given the deluge of emails from SEO consultants abroad selling their services it is important that entrepreneurs are better educated on the potential pitfalls that can arise from their services. Before you hand over the company keys to a outsourced SEO company you have not met with in person and have only interacted with on the phone it is highly helpful that you arm yourself with the knowledge contained in this training course so that you do not fall prey to SPAMMY SEO which will penalize and deindex your company website. Sincerely, Steve Constable

Unique question about woodpecker habits

Over the last 20 years my house has been damaged by woodpeckers on all four sides. The damage results in fist-sized holes one after another in a line below my gutters which are directly attached to 7-inch wood molding and the fascia board . This time I am hoping I will put an end to any future damage by replacing my gutters entirely. I am having the fascia board completely covered in metal flashing and have purchased a much larger gutter to cover the area that was once wood molding. In other words, when a woodpecker stands on my gutters they should only have contact with metal and no wood. Now, I heard that woodpeckers are creatures of habit. My question is, will they continue to try to peck on my new metal gutters once they are installed? If so, what can I do to effectively deter them so that they don't make dents in my new gutters? After all this extraordinary expense I don't want to have to look at dented gutters for the rest of my life! Thanks in advance.

re: Lawn Problem

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I am attaching additional pictures as requested. The second one shows the plant growing in a side yard which has no St. Augustine grass- perhaps that will best show you what the plant looks like without having to try to distinguish it from the grass. If you have any difficulty opening the attachments (saved in photo viewer), or if you need additional information, please let me know. Thank you again, ken stegall

New indoor potato plants have yellowing shriveling leaves

I have 2 potato plants grown from store bought potatoes. They are about 5 weeks from initially sprouting and have numerous stalks. One is around 42" tall, the other 34". A bunch of the leaves have been turning yellow, getting dark brown/black areas at the edges, shriveling and falling off. Can you tell me what could be wrong and what I can do to fix it? Thanks also, if this helps, I potted both up to larger pots, about 10 to 12" wide, and kept them watered but not excessively so I don't get root rot. They get sunlight all day, but from a North facing side window and the room temp is between 64 to 68 degrees. Hopefully that's enough info. Thanks again
