Watermelon Snow

Hi! I live in Anchorage, near OMALLEY & Lake Otis Pkwy. Yesterday. red snow appeared on the snow when the snow turned to rain. I thought watermelon snow after looking it up, but as we are at sea level is it possible? Is it pigment from the leaves? It only appeared near trees.

Black Currant Sawfly

I live in Palmer. Our black currants have sawflies. I need some advise on how to control them. I heard that nematodes might be the answer. If so which varieties? Trying to get ready for next year. Thanks

Garden plant recommendations - CO2 banking.

Would you have recommendations for plants that would maximize absorbing CO2 (CO2 sponges).. I have a six half barrel planters and other planters that I usually plant Nasturtium. While they grow huge it seems that at end of season they are mostly water. Thanks

Identification

Could you identify this flying bug. I think this MIGHT be my culprit causing my home invasion problem. Whatever this is would it leave black dots and then red/orange like seed things? In car, in kitchen, in my elderly moms white hair & up nose. I think they more jump than fly but I could be wrong. At this point I have an exterminator coming but thought I would send it to you to identify and see if anyone else has had this nightmare of eggs and larvae EVERYWHERE. I have no plants, my house is all hardwood and prettty empty at this point but there are a lot of cracks and hides holes. In the second picture you can see a white egg - Thank you once again.
