Insect control

My South facing lawn is under attack by insects. I bought Diazinon which says to apply it differently for surface bugs than for underground insects. Do I need to know for sure or can I apply it in the morning and then water it in in the evening? I don't want to make a mis-diagnosis. Thank you.

47 year old juniper with browning branches

This juniper has shown a little browning since last fall, but in the last couple of weeks it has advanced--in area and brown color. On two sides there is a fairly big split or crack in the bark--not new. Don't see any critters anywhere or any small holes in the bark watered 3x / week by sprinkler system. No Roundup used anywhere near, fertilized only by lawn fertilizer. . My question is "what can I do to save this tree?"

Plant identification

I asked a question about a shrub identification and it was answered but I forgot what the answer was! How do I find my original question and the answer that was sent. It was about either a euonymus or viburnum. Not the common buckthorn which was another question and it was answered. Should I ask the wuestion all over again?

Hail damage and large pumpkins

Hi, I met you guys at Adams County fair and you were so helpful, so I thought I'd throw another question your way. We have/had a "pumpkin patch" in our yard (about 20-30 feet growth from where they were planted). We have a few large pumpkins at about 40-50 lbs. Yesterdays hailstorm completely destroyed all the leaves in the patch (but the pumpkins were only dimpled, not gouged). The main vines appear to be intact, but the leaves no longer exist. So how do handle the pumpkins? Will they continue to grow or start to decay? On a positive note, at least this got rid of the powdery mildew problem...and another question, what is the best solution for prevention and elimination of powdery mildew?

sick pines

Below are pics of sick pines in the native area behind my home. I don't think they are getting too much water, as they are on a slope. Could they be getting too little water? I noticed that there were tiny white spots on some of the needles. I can't seem to get the county to work. I am in Douglas County.
