Damage to pear tree leaves after spraying

I sprayed my 14 tree orchard with pure neem, fish emulsion and some Dawn dish soap. Now my pears have damaged leaves. One has dry wilted leaves and the other two have black spots. I think I may have added too much detergent. The apples, cherries, peaches and plums are all ok. What can I do to prevent loss of the one tree? Will they be able to grow new leaves? My orchard is 3-4 years old. Two of the pears are standard (of which one is the most damaged) and the other is dwarf. Thanks so much for your assistance!

Maple tree poor condition

I have a sugar maple that has been dropping leaves in midsummer for the past three years. Leaf production has become sparse. It is noticeably visible. There are some white spots on the bark on many branches. Is there a way for me to bring it back to health? There are many other maples on the property, some with the white spots on the bark but no indication that leaf production is inhibited.

controlling spotted knapweed

Is it possible to purchase/release insects for control of spotted knapweed in Michigan? I have approx. 5 acres in Emmet Co. that is highly infested with knapweed and it is killing off all the grasses and other plants in our field. I am not interested in using insecticides. I have read about various insects that are used for knapweed control but the only websites I find that have these insects are in Montana. Related to this, does MSU have any field restoration programs/research projects that I might participate in for control of knapweed and restoration of native plants?

What kind of tick is this?

Customer is wanting to know what kind of tick this is. It was found on her leg and had been there a while. My apologies about the quality of the photos. My microscope is not working with my computer since the system update.

Want to safely eradicate pest plant in lawn

My mother lives on Crooked Lake in Alanson, Emmet county. A pest plant is taking over RIGHT along the lake wall. I think it’s Creeping Charlie. It is gradually marching into her lawn, and because of its aggressive growth habit I am losing the battle against it. Being on the water, we don’t want to use chemicals - lord, the thought of herbicide going into the lake! We really want to get rid of it, before the problem becomes even worse. Help please?
