Red Oaks Borers, damage is done

Hello, I recently had to dig up one of my red oaks, it was already weak and died after the borers had their way with it. My other two red oaks were also bored into, but are still alive. I have sprayed a systematic insecticide on them, and I'm hoping for the best. What else do I need to do? Anything? Thank you in advance!!

I have a fine white mold/dust on my Chinkapin trees, should I treat it?

I'm not sure what it is, it's on the top part of the leak, splotchy white mold.

Thanks!

Invasive plant

How do I get rid of a low growing deep purple clover with tiny yellow flowers that is taking over the yard. It is only about an inch tall but is killing all the grass around it. I have used glycosphate several times and it keeps coming back.

Sour tomatos

Why do my tomatoes have a slight "vinegary" taste to them?

I have good soil and I keep them fertilized. They don't taste bad, their just not sweet tasting.

Green tomatos on vine

Hello,

I have tomatos that have grown from marble sized to tennis ball size. They continue to stay green (dark green) and never ripen.

What am I doing wrong?

Rooster has red raw rear end

My 11 month old New Hampshire Red rooster has a red raw rear end and has had it for several months. Sorry I do not have any pictures. He did have diarrhea, but that is getting better. I don't have a vet nearby by who will even look at him. Everyone I ask says they don't see chickens.
I believe this started in the summer after a couple days of very hot weather and the chickens kept dumping out their water. I put a large pan of water in the pen until I was able to obtain another waterer. I cleaned it daily, but it was always very dirty.

I have consulted various websites for help. I have tried diligently to follow all the information I have been given but nothing seems to have helped. I diluted 1 tsp Nystatin in the 1 gallon chicken water for 10 days. No change. I have been told to add 1/4 cup lemon juice to their water to raise the acidity level in their gut. I have also been told that I need to give them Probiotics and add garlic to their food each day. I don't know what any of this is supposed to do, but nothing seems to be working. It is not contagious because none of my other chickens have the same symptoms. He seems to be a little better because he is mating again and his tail feathers are starting to grow back but it is still very inflamed back there. Also I don't know if this is associated or not but his feet are also very red in color. If you can help me I would so appreciate it and I know my rooster would be relived if his rear was not so raw. Thank you.

animal digging under slab foundation

I live in Forney TX blackland soil. I have a slab foundation which I had repaired a year ago. I believe I have something living under my slab. I have filled the wholes several times and it reopens or moves slightly over. I don't see the dirt on the outside of the hole but I think the foundation work must have left room under the house for it to live. I have a lot of squirrels but I don't think they live under ground. I can't smell a anything so I don't think it is a skunk. The hole is about the size a squirrel could go in. Any suggestion as to what I have and how to get rid of it?
