cutting down bark beatle invested trees

Hi I have a home in Mariposa California, Ponderosa Basin to be exact. Within a month we have noticed most of our ponderosa pines have turned brown we have been told because of the devasting effect of the bark beatle. I can't afford to have them all cut down at once. I have one that is about 3 feet in diameter near our house. How important is that the effected trees be cut down asap?

Apricot skin blemish

We have one apricot tree with good size fruit, but they all develop skin blemish and the skin in those areas (about 1" dia.) turns brown, leathery and develops cracks.
The fruit is delicious but unsightly.
We don't know the type of apricot tree and it's about 5 years old.
Attached are a couple of pictures. The fruit are not quite ripe yet.
Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Is it a Hobo Spider?

I have seen tons of these in our house in Morro Bay, California (landlord frequently travels out of the state; Utah to be specific).

I am wondering if this could possibly be a hobo spider or if it is something else that is harmless?

Thanks!
