Preventive Treatment for Pear Scab and Fireblight

My Bosc pear tree has developed a severe Scab infection. My neighbor next door has a young Bartlett pear which we understand is susceptible to Fireblight. I have read that Bordeaux Mix spray is the best organic treatment for these diseases. However, I am not finding it sold here in Coos Bay. What is the best organic treatment for our pear trees. We live uphill from the Coos River in winter zone 8b. Thank you, Cynthia Medlin

Please ID this plant located in Coos Bay. Need the proper name to find out how it behaves, then to decide if it should be encouraged or dug up. Thanks, Val Spear

Taeless racoons

There's a post asking if anyone knows 'why a lot of raccoons in North Bend, Oregon don't have tails" I worked as a Wildlife Rehabilitator in Coquille, Oregon for many years. I've rehabed numerous raccoons when injured or sick. My biggest concern was reading that you or your neighbor feeds raccoons & other wildlife. I need to inform you that racoons, skunks Ect.. all carry a deadly round worm named (Baylisascarisin) which you, kids & others can be infected & there's not a cure. Your pets from cats, dogs, horses Ect..may be infected. The worm is transferred thru the Fecal matter. When they defecate on your porch or in the feed for horses, sheep Ect. You can also be fined for feeding wildlife. Please Stop Feeding raccoons or other wildlife for yours & others health. Oh, if you have cat food or grain please store it in a tight lid container. Goodluck!

Apple tree/apple pest control

What is the recommended method to control " apple maggot" Not the codling moth... this pest spoils the flesh of the apple not just the core. Well, oops, I didn't mean to ask this twice.... It " was gone" and I thought I had lost it.\ Well, I think after reading related questions you need not respond to this. It looks as if the things I need to do are well documented in them. Thank you so much for this service.
