Q: Arborvitae line my back fence and I want to remove them and replace them with fruit trees. However, a pair of scrub jays is nesting in the arborvitae. I am not in an imminent hurry, but how can I eventually remove the arbor vitae with minimal disruption to the jays?
Q: We have been trying to attract swallows back to our neighborhood, and after 15 years we have a nesting pair in our yard. We have noticed sparrows trying to evict our family of swallows. The babies have not yet fledged, and we are concerned. What can we do?
Q: 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.
