How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Summary. Unlike a bee, which can only sting once, the European wasp can sting repeatedly. Around one in 10 people who are stung two or more times become allergic, which means they will experience severe reactions to any subsequent stings.
The major difference between wasp and hornets is size and colour. Wasps (left) are about one- third inch (one centimeter) to one inch (two and one-half centimeters) long. Hornets (right) are larger. Wasps have black and yellow rings, while hornets have black and white rings.
Wasps have a strong sense of smell and dislike certain plants like peppermint, spearmint, basil, eucalyptus, cloves, geranium, thyme, citronella, bay leaves, and lemongrass. They are also repelled by vinegar, cinnamon, coffee grounds, and sliced cucumber.
To keep track of who`s who in a complex pecking order, they have to recognize and remember many individual faces. Now, an experiment suggests the brains of these wasps process faces all at once—similar to how human facial recognition works.
Wasps can remember each other after a busy week apart, according to new research. It`s a level of social memory never seen before in insects, which were long thought to be too small-brained for such a feat.
To wasps, human beings are nothing but a threat to their home. When a wasp stings a person, they do so because they fear that they are in danger. When wasps sting, they even release a chemical which other wasps can detect.
Hornet stings are also more painful to humans than typical wasp stings because of the chemicals found in hornet venom. Individual hornets can sting repeatedly, unlike honey bees. That`s because hornets and wasps don`t die after stinging as their stingers are not pulled out of their bodies.
Baldfaced Hornets

The baldfaced hornet is a member of the yellowjacket family. They are aggressive and will attack anything (or anyone) that invades their space. They can sting repeatedly and their sting is very painful.

Use soap and water

Mix two tablespoons of dish soap into a spray bottle of water and spray it on the nests. The mixture will clog the wasps` breathing pores and kill them instantly.

Always remain still if a wasp approaches you. If you have to run away, do so in a straight line, without flailing your arms. Protect your head and face, as these areas are mostly likely to be targeted by the wasps.
Unlike bees, wasps do not die after they sting someone. In fact, they can sting multiple people, multiple times during their lifetime.

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat. They said never to use quick connects on the garden hose unless the opening is at least 5/8″. Does anyone make such a quick connect? I hate having to screw the garden hose on every time, and also having to remove my quick connects at the water spigot end. Thanks.
ANSWER : It is easy to check if your hose and quick connects are supplying enough water to the pump. Your pressure washer gallon per minuite requirements are printed on the machine and also on the pressure tips in GPM. Your post indicates 2.5 gpm but check your documentation of GPM. Next remove the tip from the wand and connect your hose with current quick connects to the machine. Start engine and direct the pressure wand into a bucket for exactly one minute. Measure the amount of water in the bucket, it should be very close to stated gallons. Do the same test with tip installed and compare measurement. If pump is starving for water you will not get proper amount of water in the bucket and the water hose will collapse. Two to four gallons of water per minute is not very demanding and should be delivered even with very small opening. You can even just direct the hose into the bucket for one minute and check how much water your hose is capable of delivering. I believe that you will find no problem with water delivery to pump. I would certainly enlighten Northern with your findings and question their evaluation. When you start using your pressure washer again try using it at lowest pressure to get the job done. Lowering the pressure to about 75% of max will increase the life of the pump and engine. Good luck with you pump

I got a roundup sprayer at a garage sale. I don’t know how to fill it. It has a model # 020p10 Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated as there is no manual. Larry
ANSWER : The handle pushes down and locks to be carry or to unscrew it. Push handle down, then twist left to unscrew. It may take a bunch of force to start. Better to hold the sprayer down and relieve all pressure before doing the unscrew.
