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.

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
