Blueberry bush leaves

This year my blueberry bushes did not leaf out fully. They are green, but did not fully develop. I have always mulched with pine needles and oak leaves to give soil an acid ph. Would this be the problem? We have clay soil.

Bat bugs

Hi! We recently purchased a home built in 1901 and in an area that is known to have bats. The home was previously a rental for 10 years, with the same tenant the entire time. She moved out in March of this year and no one lived here until we moved in at the end of September. After two weeks of living here I was up in my bathroom (a master suite below the attic with an attached bath) and found what looked like a baby bed bug ( clear) sitting on my sink behind where the faucet is. Frantic, I tossed it in the toilet and flushed. I then called Orkin and another local pest company that came out and searched all beds. They didn’t find anything and said they couldn’t be 100% sure because they Didn’t have the bug to test, but said as of now we don’t have anything, but suggested from the area of the house that is known for bats to have the attic checked. We hired a local bat company who came out and bat proofed our house (said there was probably 3-4 bats living in the attic). Fast forward to now, exactly 4 weeks later I was in my bathroom again and noticed a brown thing by the vent on the floor. Going closer it looked again like a bed bug so I bagged it. I also found about a foot away another clear baby one. They weren’t moving, but that could’ve been from me grabbing them with a tissue. I called the same local pest company that came out a month ago and they took the bugs. They confirmed it was a bed bug (but said they never work with bat bugs). I just want to know what I’m dealing with. We scoured our beds, I even slashed holes through the felt part of our box springs and searched and found NOTHING in any of the beds (six of us here) My questions are 1. If we have bed bugs and been here almost six weeks, would one of us have a bite or some eggs/bugs in the bed? Or is it possible the infestation hasn’t peaked yet? 2. Why am I only finding these bugs once a month, and ONLY in the bathroom off the master? 3. If they are bat bugs how often do they reproduce? If this is an infestation how serious would it be that we’re only seeing one every month? 4. Every company we call we get a different answer. This is my literal worst nightmare. I would honestly rather lose a limb than have bed or bat bugs. I’m just TRYING trying TRYING to think logically and don’t want to spend thousands on a treatment without knowing for sure what we’re treating. Could this be an old issue and these are dead ones falling from the attic? Or how would the adult then the “baby” be on the floor? They had to of crawled right? HELP please HELP

Cutting Back Hydrangea

I have a beautiful pink hydrangea that has 4 blooms on it. The first bloom to open is now faded and is about to die but the others still look good. Should I cut the dead bloom off or wait until the end of summer/early fall to cut them all back at the same time?
