Trinity County, Texas
Accepts questions from anywhere.
I live on the north side of lake Livingston and black ants have invaded all of the trees and land around the lake over the past year. I have tried granules, baits and sprays but can't seem to get a handle on them. There are billions of ants all over the place. Has anybody reported this and is there a solution to controlling them? They come in the house in search of food and get in the walls. I don't know what else go do.

Hi, I live in Lake L subdivision in Trinity County, Texas, and I put out several birdfeeders, usually just with black oil sunflower seed. I have always had a ton of cardinals, a few blue jays, plus chickadees, titmice, a few mourning doves and some red-bellied woodpeckers. Oh, plus a few Carolina wrens, who for some reason, seem to like the seed as well.
Since October, I have had no cardinals whatsoever, and most of the other birds seem to have vanished as well. Sometimes I will get a few chickadees and titmice early in the morning, and I saw my first jay in a long time this morning. Still no cardinals at all.
Is there anything happening in this area that would explain this? My friends tell me they have all migrated but I have had these birds year-round before. I hope you can help me. I have changed the diet, adding some of the other commercial seed, and I have changed out the bird seed a couple of times, thinking that it might have gone bad, even to the point of buying seed from a different place.
I have just bought two each of:
Will they ripen in any particular order, such that I should plant in sets?
Is it illegal to purposefuly kill a cottonmouth in the state of TX?

What is the best way to get rid of snails in the landscape?
Our azaleas have a fuzzy/powdery covering on nearly all the leaves. They are in an elevated bed, with moderatly good drainage, irrigated for 5 minutes three times weekly, moderate shade. They are no longer deep green but are looking washed out and do not look well at all. They were planted about 1 year ago. What can be wrong?
what is the name of this plant? It grows wild and wondering if it is an herb or weed?
