I live in southeastern Frederick Co. I have numerous ground hornets in my garden area. I could not get a good closeup picture with my camera. They have 3 yellow bands on their tail sections, wings, 1 to 1-1/2" in length, and they have drilled many small holes in the ground between raspberry rows. What are they (?) and what is a way that I can get rid of them?

Do you know what these moths are (see attached picture) and if they are harmful to my tree? They have been sitting on a maple tree in my front yard all morning, moving slowly around the trunk. I have never seen any like this before. They are about 5 inches across. They seem to be mating and perhaps laying eggs (though I haven't seen any).

We have what appears to be a Beetle infestation at the base of an Ash tree. We've seen a couple beetles coming and going, but not sure if they are the cause, or just traveling the tunnels. Our ultimate concern is if they will damage the tree, and what type of beetle it is. I've attached pictures of the tree base (same thing around surface roots), one beetle carcass at the base, and one live beetle seen today. They seem to be about an inch to inch and a half long, black, with a short horn. Thanks for your help. Bill M.

Hi, I have been very puzzled by something I hope you could help me with. Why wasn't I overrun with the 17yr locust that I remember as a child? I live in the same area and did not see a single one. Is it the climate change, global warming, or what. Thank you in advance for your expert help in this puzzling question. Sincerely, Leslie Grempler
