Black-eyed pea infestation

I have what I think are thrips on my peas. They cover the blossom and also the pea. Peas curl & shrivel. It's so late in the season, I'm not that interested in getting rid of them, but I'd like to know how to prevent their coming next year. I have a very small garden, and I turn the pea roots under in the soil each fall and plant there again the next summer, as I have no other place for them.

Do farm fresh eggs need to be washed?

I am receiving farm fresh eggs from a friend who has chickens on his ranch. Do I need to wash them before I cook with them? They appear to be clean. I've heard pros and cons to washing them.

Red bugs eating mountain laurel seed pods and sap

My mountain laurel has bloomed and it is covered in seed pods. The pods are oozing some kind of sap and there are small red bugs (I think they have wings) apparently eating the sap but also eating the seed pods. They ARE NOT eating any leaves. What are the red bugs? Marble Falls, TX

stone vs. bark for mulch

The flower beds at my new house are mulched with pebbles. Would it be better to replace the rocks with a plant material such as shredded bark? I want what is the best for the plants. They are not densely planted right now, but I would like to add more plants.
We are in Marble Falls.
Thank you
