Hi Smiler, Nut is right dont go wasting money on sprays and such ,and dont cut it till you know what your doing,iv been there before and got advise from an expert ,it can take 2 to 3 years to eradicate its not too expensive, Find the sours of it and get good advise from the proper people dont start worrying and dont take advise from anyone except the experts ,much cheeper in the long run, good luck.

Hi Jen we get big Queens every day on our white painted stucko ( there when we bought the house not me) and in the half done kitchen which has big windows they love it, i gave them some honey to give em a boost after waking up ,i put some in a jar top outside then a bit on my finger and then transfer them to the top outside works like a dream and i get a kick having them so close ,one day we had 3 side by side warming up, good luck ,im off to find mi sun goggles

Hi Gedam,i cant comment on the root that's been cut off but , if i repot a fair sized tree and at the moment im doing figs,the experts say if you cant go into a bigger pot or into open soil then remove 20% of the old rootball with a sharp knife repot 1 to 2 inches deeper than before adding new compost and tamp down well,this is usually done every 2 years god luck
