My strawberries are being eaten by lunges, and sow bugs. These are June bearing berries and are starting to ripen now. I'm looking for an organic remidy. Also, how often and how long should I water? I'm using drip system. Thank you. Linda Specht Murphys, Cal.

How far to move tomatoes to avoid soil fungus

Last year I lost about half of my 30 tomatoes with symptoms that suggested it was possibly Fusarium wilt. So if I do indeed have this or some other similar fungus in my soil is it isolated to those previous planting holes? Will moving my tomatoes over a couple feet be enough to avoid the fungus? If not, how far away would I need to go? Any other tips for dealing with this?

Forestry: Are "tree injections" effective vs. beetles in drought, w/o watering the trees?

Dear Experts,

Last drought season in CA Sierra resulted in many dried pine trees, and I look for any ways to minimize this next year.

I've heard of "trees injection" with chemicals ("pheromones" or insecticides) used to prevent pines' "death". However, I don't know whether this would work in drought conditions, without watering (which is hard to do in the forest, even if near property).

Common sense might suggest that if the drying trees are "on their last leg" as is, then beetles infestation may be just one symptom of the root problem, rather than a key factor causing the issue.

Also, this treatment is costly, and I'd really appreciate your advice on whether this would be effective in drought, without watering the trees in the first place.

Thank you very much for your expert advice.
