invasive plant

Have a huge, fast growing, fast spreading plant (weed) I can't get rid of. I'm not sure what it is but in looking through my books I think it might be Knotweed,Japanese. We have use roundup. Do you have any suggestions. It is going into the neighbors yard also. It seems like there is no stopping it.

Which feels colder, exosphere, thermosphere or mesosphere?

I know the coldest temperatures on Earth are found in the mesosphere. I also understand the highest temperatures are in the thermosphere. However, I've learned that it is the friction of the elements/molecules that create heat. Since their are very few ele/mol in the thermosphere I understand how it can feel cold. Does this mean that the exosphere, thermosphere and mesosphere would all feel equally cold - on the skin? - in the body? Would the thermosphere cook us like a microwave?

English Ivy looking dead

We have a brick wall of mature English Ivy. This past winter the bottom 3 feet of the ivy was impacted with ice and snow for almost 2 months. Since the snow and ice have melted, all of the ivy looks dead. There are a very few green leaves mixed in. Will the ivy recover or should we remove it and start over?

Spraying near waterways

I need some clarification. I work for a municipality (Borough of Paxtang), and have an outfield fence line that is being overtaken by vegetation. I would like to spray the fence to control such vegetation, except for the fact that it rests within 10'-20' from a local small stream. What I've found so far is that I believe I need to file for an NPDES in order to apply pesticides/herbicides within that area. Any help or clarification would be much appreciated. Thank you!
