Accepts questions from anywhere.
I have been looking for farm acreage to purchase (2-10 acres or so) for about a year and have had no luck. Are you aware of any acreage that could be for sale?

We have several anthills near the house, some in flower beds where there are perennials I don't want to kill (e.g. with boiling water). There are tiny black ants, small black ants,(which bite) and large "carpenter" ants... those 3 kinds come into the kitchen.. What's effective for getting rid of them? Digging the whole hill out and pouring boiling water and vinegar on them didn't work -- they industriously rebuilt, and bit me the whole time I worked.
Is there a service to have your soil tested for harmful materials? We moved to a house that was built on previous farm land. We have lived there about a year and a half. Two of our dogs have passed away from two different forms of cancer in the last five weeks. They passed prior to their life expectancy. I would like to see what our soil contains to rule out any association.

Hi, My name is Karen Foss and I teach in Sandusky, OH at the Regional Center for Advanced Academic Studies. My 4th grade class is answering the driving question "What has our indicator specie, the frog, told us about the population growth in Ohio from 1900 - the present?" I have a group that is researching the growth/decline of farming in Ohio and they are struggling finding information. Do you have any suggestions, websites and information that may help these students? One of them is looking at the amount of land, one is looking at the amount of pesticides used and one fertizers. Thank you.
