Hello, I have a question about pest control. I have been experiencing bad bedbugs infestation in my residence. But what makes it complex is how to eliminate these bugs for good. How do I remove these bugs fast for longer? I seriously need some help... https://www.jopestkil.com

Here is a link with helpful information about bedbugs: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/QT/bedbugscard.html

Finding termites can be a shock and quite upsetting. We have all heard the horror stories of homes so damaged they are structurally unstable and families that have been devestated by huge repair bills. Prevention is the best cure, but if you have already found termites in your property then read through the following important information before you do anything. Termite infestations are usually discovered by accident . Termites travel in what are called 'mud tubes' and keep themselves concealed between walls, in roof and sub floor voids and ocasionally in furniture. Signs of termites may include mud tubes, discoloured, flaking or bubbling paint, soft spots in the wall or door/window frames, swollen timbers, electrical connection problems and sometimes small piles of dirt, often hidden in the corners of cupboards.

I have been searching for an answer to a tree issues (Modesto Ash) and have been told there is a department who can answer questions regarding plant/tree issues at your institution. Could you please direct me to this department. Thank you.

Hey Webmaster, There's a broken link on this page. It's on the right-hand side, and says: Animal Science Extension.

The California Governors office declared a state of emergency due to drought conditions. Yet the governors office, state departments and agencies are knowingly jeopardizing the health and safety of California citizens by poising our water supplies due to Fracking. And depleting our water supplies by expanding economic development. You can't declare a state of emergency for water conservation to only then pump toxic chemicals into wells and expand houses, businesses, strip malls and schools with known limited water supplies. This is an outdated policy that is harming the public and needs to be fixed.

I have a pest control question. We found termites in the wood shakes and plywood backing along the front facade of our home. All the ifested materials have been replaced with termite resistent materials but now I need to make sure that termites will not attack the wood frame of our home. Do you have any advice regarding products (or chemical components) that are effective but non-damaging to humans or the environment? Can I avoid treating the interior of my garage/home and still eliminate further damage? Can you give me a list of chemicals that I should avoid? Thank you

Whole Foods recently sold me Santolina ch. Lavender as "culinary lavender". But I have my doubts that this plant can be used in cooking like teas, etc. Please let me know if it can be eaten. Thanks
