I have 6 pinon pine all which have various levels of attack with pitch mass borer; one is much worse than the others. My neighbor recommended "Viper" by Martin's - it is a cypermethrin. They have used it for past 3 years with some success. My question is: 1) is this OK to use, 2) what are best times of year and 3) frequency, 4) amount of spraying.
This weekend, I tried to scrape the sap away and find a bore hole and stick a sharp object into it. Today I sprayed the trunks of the trees and branches. I live at 6500" in Albuquerque, NM.

So I live in New Mexico but the page said that that group wasn't accepting questions. I was helping my grandmother-in-law clean and we discovered these small brownish beetle looking bugs in the kitchen. She has a mobile home and it has a "bar" in the kitchen that also servers as cabinet space and that's where they are primarily located. It seems like they are between the wood panels, at first I thought they were a type of grain weevil but they just don't look the same. They look like a beetle but I haven't seen anything like this before. They are pretty small and vary in size, the one in the picture is one of the bigger ones. I cleaned the cabinets and sprayed Raid Bug Barrier, its seems to be working but I would still really like to know what I'm dealing with.

Does cytospora fungal live in soil? Thus do I have to remove old soil when replanting trees who have died from cytospora infection?

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I have a house with a sunken shower that has been leaking under the concrete slab for many years. I have broken out and removed the concrete slab around this area and removed about 4' of dirt. I have let it dry out and I cannot get rid of the smell inside the house. Is there a possibility that the smell has penetrated the walls and insulation also? I cannot sell or rent this house out until I correct the problem. I took soil samples and mold was found in the soil... Please any guidance would be appreciated.
