I am new to Iowa and have head from neighbors about a fungus found on some Blue Spruce trees. In the early Spring I planted a number of 4 foot Serbian Spruce trees. Do I need to be concerned about any issues with their health? What other types of evergreens would do well in Grinnell Iowa? Also, On the East coast I did very well with the ground cover Pachasandra. I do not see that around here. Thank you, Frank Appleton

pole beans

The pole beans I am growing were doing fine until about a week ago. These are not hybrid beans. New growth leaves look damaged, but still green. Would appreciate any suggestions. Most new growth looks like this. This is 2nd page with picture of good growth.

Bot Flies

I'm experiencing an unusually heavy infestation of bot flies that are laying eggs on my horses. I've tried removing the eggs in the usually recommended ways, but none seem to really work. I've ordered "Ovitrol Plus" spray to attempt to "kill" the eggs, but it's yet to arrive. Does anyone have suggestions as to how to deal with this problem?

Trees that are infected with beetles

There are trees along my property that are not mine that are infected with beetles. Trees are dying and falling on my property. Property owner does not do any thing since this property is zoned agricultural. So I cut the dead tree that fell onto my property that was very infested with some type of beetle. What can I do? Thank you.
