Bat Control

At the Community Federated Church in Thermopolis WY we have become a home to a seasonal bat population. We are wondering if your experts can help us discourage the return of the bats to our church this year. Are there any chemicals or electromagnet frequencies (outside the range of the human ear) that would be effective in encouraging their relocation?

Sincerely,
Jim Kirsch

Do I need to lower the PH in my soil

Greetings; I own a piece of property adjacent to the Big Horn River in Thermopolis. I have been having problems with the leaves on my trees and shrubs turning yellow. I was told that I was watering to often. for the past three years I only water once a week for a couple of hours. The leaves are still turning yellow and my old growth apple trees are dying. We've lost three so far. I have added chelated and pelletized iron every year. I have even injected liquid iron into the soil to no avail. I read that my soil PH is to high and will not let the soil release the iron. My soil is river bottom soil, some broken clay mixed with small amounts of sand. I water with river water. I have heard that Aluminum Sulphate might let the soil release the iron? The trees and shrubs are all surrounded by lawn which would make for tilling in peat moss or any other organic materials unfeasible. The trees have been diagnosed with chlorosis (SP? lack of chlorophyll). What would suggest that I do?

Would you know what this insect is?

I am "hoping" this is not a bed bug or a flea. It is approx 1mm long, black and has 2 antennae and I believe 4 legs. 3 have been found in my house. This one was in the tub and the photo taken when it had been wet. Sorry the photo quality isn't wonderful, but its a very tiny bug. I tried to increase clarity some and have one more view that shows the antennae better. I've looked online and am not sure.I'm hoping you know without going to any trouble. Thank you so much!!

Soil tests for hazardous defoiliants

I recently purchased a home near Thermopolis WY. I learned from a neighbor that the previous owner sprayed "Agent Orange" on his driveway to kill off the vegetation. This would have been about 7 years ago. Apparently the owner worked for the power company so might just have had access to potent defoiliants. The neighbor claimed to have personally been give a gallon of "Agent Orange." So, let's say the person is not mis-remembering history. Is there a way I can get a soil test, not for garden optimization, but to detect hazardous chemicals like the ones mentioned? Many Thanks
