Ambrosia Beetle Control

I belong to an organization (ACCF) that is trying to restore the American Chest tree by growing pure bred blight resistant Americian Chestnut trees. Every May for about the last 6 years I get an attack on smaller trees from the Amboisia Beetle and about half die. The ACCF 1st recomemded spraying with Permithrin. It didn't work well. I had mixed Permithrin with an "oil spray" and thought that I had a little success.

Do you know of anything that can successfully control the Ambrosia Beetle.

Thanks, Andy Rhody Cambria County.

Spots on leaves

I was wondering if you could tell me what is wrong with my Japanese maple? There are brownish spots on the leaves that almost look like burn marks. These spots appear over the entire tree. Is it anything that is harmful to the tree? Is there anything I can do to treat this?

Mint removal

A neighbor was kind enough to share a piece of her mint or spearmint plant which I planted in my garden. Well, it really liked where I placed it and it is huge. I cut it back and that made it worse. It is growing out my paver wall on the low side of my garden. I want to get rid of it! I dug very deep and the roots are amazing. Should I keep very carefully and gently pulling out the roots? Would cutting them out just encourage then to spread? Is there something I could put in the soil to discourage them? I don't want to hurt other plants to grow in my garden next year.

Dairy

Hi im Michael A. Sowalla with Windy Hills Dairy Farm in Cherry Tree PA, I am doing a farm buisness plan for FSA for 75 Holsteins. I need someone to confirm with me for the production and Income From the Dairy. (75 cows x 60 pounds per cow per day = 4,500 pounds per day x 365 day lactation = 1,642,500 pounds per year , 1,642,500 pounds / 100 pound units per year = 16,425 units per year , 16,425 units x $18.00 per hunderd weight = $295,650 income from dairy per year, ) FSA has been using Kansas State for my dairy Projections and each time they put it at 30 pounds or lower per cow per day and if i had a cow that was making 30lbs per day it wouldnt be at the farm.

Dying pine tree

The bottom branches of a huge pine tree is dying off, looking for help in diagnosing problem. Maybe you can suggest a remedy or recommend someone reputable to come look at it. The last couple years I dumped lawn clippings and leaves, is it possible that is causing the problem???Thanks
