Lime for my lawn

General recommendations tell us to put lime in our lawn if I have a dog. I live in the Black Hills, on a mountain of limestone. Should I lime my yard, it sounds like pellets work better to apply, and take 2 years to work into the ground. Also, instructions say it's not good for dogs, my dog is outside a lot.

Voles in my yard

I have voles burrowing through my lawn. How do I get rid of them? I tried mouse traps with peanut butter, and caught something in each trap, but think they were squirrels that I caught. They tore the traps up, so I don't think I caught voles. Again, how can I get rid of voles in my yard?

Small ladybug type bugs with green/gold fluorescent heads

What are these small fluorescent bugs chewing holes in my morning glory leaves? They are a little smaller than a ladybug, not quite as round, and are a light orange with small brownish spots. The head area is bright green or gold fluorescent in sunlight. I found one yesterday, and two today. Are they harmful?

We planted several Blue Star Junipers in our yard last year. They were identified as being deer resistant, so I assumed the rabbits wouldn't bother them either. Wrong! Every one of them have been eaten completely off. What is their chance of survival? (The shrubs, not the rabbits - I already know what their chances are!) Thanks for your help, Donna

? emerald ash borer bug

My ash tree appears to be dead. On the trunk of the tree it looks like the tail end of a bug sticking out of it. When I pulled it out there is about an inch hole into the tree. Is that sound like an emerald ash borer?

Lawn weed spray residue in compost

If grass clippings from a lawn treated with weed control spray are put into my compost bin will the herbacide affect the finished compost? It usually takes about a year for the compost to be finished. Thank you.
