Emerald green arborvitae

I have had 3 10 foot tall emerald green arborvitae for 16 years. All of a sudden one has died and the second one is dying. There are no bag worms at all. They start wilting and turning light green and eventually turn brown and die. I have been spraying 3 in 1, but to no avail. We have had rain, so it’s not drought.

Please help!

My Pink Lemonade Blueberry, or Vaccinium, looks like it has the chicken pox! It does not affect the stems. It has shown up in the last week and all 3 of my plants have it. I fertilize with Miracle Grow, manure, and compost.

Brown spots on vehicles

I have the same problem with spots on my vehicles. We are thinking it might either be a bug that is on our sycamore trees or maybe the sap off of a tree in our back yard. These trees on the road leave Brown rings on the roads where they are. I don't know what kind of tree they are. And the bugs on the tree, I call them tree lice. But the spots on vehicles are very hard to get off. We have tried everything. Any ideas to get spots off or what is causing it
