Pantry Moths

Hello,

We have had an infestation of pantry/indian meal moths in our fireplace. Years ago, we discovered pantry moths in the kitchen pantry and we eliminated these moths in the kitchen when we remodeled our kitchen. However, they have been in the fireplace for several years and have been seen flying out of the fireplace. I have contacted several pest control companies who have used sprays/foggers in the fireplace and I have the chimney/fireplace cleaned yearly. No one has been able to help me or tell me how to get rid of these pesty indian meal moths. We have checked the attic as well and cannot find any food source. I am constantly buying pantry moth traps and this does attract about 50% of them. I have about given up! Today, another pest control company came out and told me that they could not help me. Any suggestions on how we can get rid of these moths? Thank you, M.O.

Tall money tree HELP

I received a bonsai money tree after my husband passed away. It was 3 braided plants 2 of them died. Now it is 1 tall strange looking skinny trunk with a few leaves at the top.
What should I do? It just keeps getting taller staying skinny. I tied some wooden skewers to it so it wouldn't limp over but something has to give. It's not really that pretty anymore but I do want to keep it.

Reintroducing chicken with head injury

Good evening, I have a quick question about a young pullet who was injured badly on her head/neck at about 4 weeks of age. It took about one month to heal during which time she was kept in a large tote in the house. The vet cleared her to be reintroduced with the other 3 chickens about 2 weeks ago. This is also around the time of moving them from their brooder to the run and coop. We have set up a cage inside the run for the recovered chicken. She is left in her solo cage during the day, and we let them all of them out to free range in the large backyard (supervised) during the evenings. Despite seeing her in the run all day, the other pullets (so we assume) can be very aggressive - chasing her, pecking at her, attempting to pull out her feathers. One in particular, who we suspect might be a cockerel, is ruthless. One additional thing that I imagine is working against us is that the recovered pullet happens to be the smallest — the chicks were all purchased at the same time but the other three are at this point more developed (bigger combs, waddles, feet, etc). We try not to intervene in the scuffles unless it looks like she might get re-injured or she’s clearly distressed and being ganged up upon. Recovered pullet is very distressed in her solitary cage at dusk, for some reason I haven’t yet figured out. It just seems like we aren’t making any headway. It’s been about 2 weeks since we started reintroducing her. Can you offer any advice different from what we are doing? Should we stop letting them all free range together? Any advice would be appreciated! I’m starting to consider investing in a separate little henhouse for this girl.

Should I cut down my American elm?

I have a huge elm tree right next to the peer and beam foundation of my 77 year old house. I believe the tree to be mature because the tree has not changed size or shape in the ten years that I have owned the house. The trunk is about 4 ft in diameter and the trees hidth I estimate around 100 feet. It has had some bad pruning in the past and the canopy is thin. Water has seeped into the pruned area and discoloration due to rot is present. The tree constantly shed dead branches, and recently it lost a couple of large limbs approximately a ft in diameter. I noticed rot on the inside of these limbs. My concern is the trees location over my house and my neighbors house. It could cause severe damage should its larger limbs fall. I think I am living on borrowed time and should have the tree removed but I hat to remove such a beautiful tree even though it is showing its age Any advice would be appreciated
