Grass growing questions

I am trying to get grass to grow on the north side of my house, mostly shade, moist to wet soil. I have also noticed moss growing there before, don know if that has anything to do with it. Grass grows there, but it is really thin and mats easily. Is there a type of grass that likes wet shady soil? Do I need to have the soil tested? I live and work in Waverly, so if someone wants to stop and look, I can accommodate.

What bug is this?

Found many of these on our soft maple. When we knock on the wood, they move as a ripple. Is this hurting our tree? Or signs that tree not well?

wasp infestation

We have wasps nesting somewhere inside our house in Waverly. We have no way of knowing where they're hiding but they keep appearing, usually looking pretty sleepy (although one bit me recently). Do you have any suggestions? We have swatted dozens of them in recent months and would like to be rid of them. (We had an exterminator come check out our house last year; he closed up an unused vent in our fireplace; the critters persist).

Eastern cicada killer

We have cicada wasp in our front yard for the last 3 years. I’ve done some research on how to get rid of them but it’s just not working. We have poured ammonia down the holes while there inside and covered the hole with weight on top. I’ve killed a few this way and also while they fly around I know them down with wasp killer and stomp on them. I have killed roughly 25 this year and seem to be a lot more now. They are tearing up the yard with their mounds of black soil. Not sure if you guys have any other recommendations on how to get rid of them. I appreciate any help!
