Yesterday (August 2018) we decided to rake mulch away from our house, and discovered millions of insects in the mulch against our house, all along the side of the house. I cannot even tell whether they are larvae of "grown" insects. We need to know what insects they are, whether to be concerned for the integrity of our house, and how to deal with them. I took 5 images, one of which is the nest structure and another a video, but this site only permits upload of 1 image and does not permit uploading videos. I am attaching the nest structure which has just a few of the bugs. I can send along the other photos separately, if desired.

The well at my church showed positive for coliform bacteria but not super dark as on the package chart but not clear either. Do you know of a better more sensitive test? Can you recommend a business that can clear a well of such bacteria ? This is my second e-mail. Sent one on July 20th. Anyway it is a problem. No one is drinking the water

I have pine trees in my yard that have a growth and are oozing sap. I was told that it was from a Zimmerman moth. The branches are curving upward and look pretty much dead. Should these trees be removed quickly? I certainly don't want my other trees and shrubs to be affected.

I am a 7th grade teacher at Baldwin Road STEM Middle School in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. I am currently planning a small scale hydroponics project for my students. This will be a proof of concept that will hopefully lead to a much larger scale system in our SOIL lab. Is there anyone at the extension office that could come speak with our students about these systems?
