Iridescent Blue-Black Wasp

We just bought a home with a pond and dual waterfalls. The backyard is extremely wet this year. Our deck is inundated with yellow jackets and the blue black wasps. I am having the yellow jackets sprayed. If the other wasps really are solitary mud dauber-type wasps, I hate to harm them. I try to limit the harm we do to insect species. Yellow jackets are just too aggressive to have around small children, animals, and sting-allergic people. Is the spray that kills yellow jackets liable to kill these other wasps as well?

iris root rot

Much of my iris bed is affected by root rot. I've dug them all out to take get a good look and treat the rotted rhizomes. My question is whether or not the soil needs to be treated before re-planting the treated the rhizomes and how to do it if so. I live in NE Ohio.

I have a pond that is about 1/2 acre. To control the filamentous algae, I add containers of baley straw. The place I used to buy Barley straw from does not have it this year. Can someone please let me know where I can purchase it? Thank you John

My husband and I have a large ash tree which may be infested with the Emerald Ash Borer. Professional tree services say they have never seen an ash tree of this size. There is so much poison ivy on the tree that I cannot measure its circumference. Two years ago I submitted a photo to the State of Ohio following an article in the Akron Beacon Journal about the biggest ash tree in the state. Although we have treated this tree annually, unfortunately the leaves came out later than usual and some of the limbs are bare. Could someone come out and access the damage by the ash borer that may have been done to our wonderful tree? We need an unbiased opinion, not a company which stands to make money from its removal. Thank you.

canning invert sugar

A question was posed about canning invert sugar, a mixture of glucose and fructose obtained by the hydrolysis of sucrose.

I could not find any information regarding the safety of this. Can you give any information on this?
