Featured Question

I sent in a picture awhile ago, and you said it was a woodpecker, sapsucker variety. Now it seems there are flying insects, flies and small bees or wasps at the tree all the time, also have seen the woodpecker several times. Seems like they are ruining or killing the tree, what can we do to save it, or stop them from making it look like this? Organically if possible.
