Wasp behavior

There has been a wasp that will not leave from its perch on the handle of my front door. It was literally been there for approximately three-four weeks now. I have washed the door handle, applied repellents, shooed it away, but without fail, it returns everyday. Is this crazy or is it some sort of homing behavior??

Safe treatment for fire ants under a well cover

We have a deep well (about 8 years old; it is sealed). I pulled up our well cover to discover a huge nest of fire ants. I guess it's been there a while as it probably fills the inside of the cover at least halfway up. What is safe to use near the well to kill or encourage the ants to move? I tried natural "sprinkles" like cayenne, cinnamon, garlic, and mint to see if they would relocate. I think they laughed at that. :-) Can you advise?

What is eating my ferns?

My ferns were being devoured by evergreen cutworms. I cleaned all the ferns, cutting off damaged leaves, removed all the cutworms manually that I could find and sprayed the ferns with soapy water for the time being. I've fertilized and watered them since and will try spraying them with insecticide tomorrow in a small area to see if it hurts them and be more thorough if they tolerate the insecticide. I also found Japanese beetles curled up in the small tips of some new fronds. These ferns had been placed on the ground and not hung up. I also cleaned out as many dead leaves from the centers as I could because the evergreen cutworms sometimes are curled up like a dead fern leaf. Please post this for answers to "What is eating my ferns?" Thanx! Wendy King Nashville, NC

What type of pepper?

What type of pepper is this, it is very small. I researched Tepin peppers, but they look more round that this. Thanks!

Paint on trees

I see Orange/red squares painted on some trees. What does that mean? I have wetlands close to me.

How come ranch dressing can sit on shelves in grocery store at room temp without going bad. When open it says refrigerate.
