How toxic is purple nightshade to cattle. We have 50 acres of coastal bermuda hay crop that we are trying to grow organically but is getting quite a lot of purple nightshade in it.

Tree thinning with lots of balls

One of our bald cypress tree is losing leaves, getting very thin, and has lots of balls. We have 5 and this is the only one doing this. We did add dirt around it about 2 months ago. Could that be the problem? About 6-8 inches . Should we remove the dirt now?

black foliage eating beetles

Hello. We live in N. central Tx and for the last 2 years our yard has become infested with a solid black little beetle that eats leaves. lots of leaves. They dont seem to be very picky. just leaves. They come in droves, late spring. I have found no pictures or description that matches exactly. They look like a blackened false bombardier beetle, but are definitely eating leaves.
thank- you for your attention.

brown recluse?

Hi I found this spider crawling out of my hair down my neck. I am terrified. I am in North Central Texas in the country. I have never seen a spider lile this. Left photo is original, the right two are brightened and cropped to enhance details.
