chicken mite infestation that spread to home by the cat

What can we treat the chicken coop and chickens with? What can we treat inside our home and our clothing and beds for the same mites that are biting the humans?

Grocry store taxes

How is and what determines the food tax on my grocery bill statement? It is a perplexing issue! Has anyone ever wondered WHY we have to pay any tax on FOOD? (I do not consider pop and potato chips a food item.) 6.75% NC Sales Tax 1% NC Sales Tax 2% NC Sales tax All these taxes were listed and paid on a recent grocery store statement.

We have a couple of plants in our tomato garden that have yellow leaves with tiny grey and black spots. some of the stems have dark places where it intersects with the leaves. These plants already have fruit about 2 inches in diameter that are not ripe, but look fine so far. There is no sign of insects on the foliage. Could overwatering be the problem? Our other tomato plants look fine. Should we remove the infected plants or use some kind of chemical?

disease of evergreens

Could you please help me identify the problem with my big giant spruces and how to treat them. See photos. The disease seems to be spreading. There are no bag worms on the effected limbs. I am cutting out all of the diseased limbs. The trees are 7 years old and receive water from our well irrigation system.

Just wanted to see what plant this is. Only the single specimen found growing in the sand by a driveway on Hatteras Island in North Carolina, just north of Rodanthe.

storm damamge to ornamentals

my roses and perennials were very affected by the recent storm - I live within yards of the ocean. I have hosed all of them down to wash off salt but that is a small measure. do you recommend cutting any of these back at this time or would it stress them out more? most of the perennials are just stems - no leaves. the roses have salt burned leaves.
