No, you can try to get rid of it yourself, no need to inform anyone.

Insect activity around a chimney pot

Posted: 09/08/2015 at 11:09

I've had honey bees in my chimney for at least 3 years now, the colony split into two in July but there are still plenty left. They are no trouble and very welcome to a disused chimney. They do seem to range away from my garden a lot.

2 plant IDs please

I agree with Lysimachia for both.

Id please

Betony doesn't smell horrid and is unlikely to be a garden weed (it would be welcome in mine!).

Id please

Sounds like Stachys sylvatica, Hedge Woundwort, to me.

Definitely a Juniper, there are a few similar cultivars.

Help needed!

I don't use the weather thing either, I have other apps for that. I don't normally have any problems with the site. 

I'd like something that lets you go to the next post without having to jump back to Latest Posts, preferably sited at the bottom of the screen.

Butterflies

I can honestly say that I have never seen a butterfly or caterpillar on a nettle, although I know they are supposed to be food plants for invertebrates. I have looked quite hard but no luck yet!

How special we are to share our planet with plants!

The pale blue one (photo 4) is a flax, Linum. The last one is Crimson Clover, Trifolium incarnartum. The second photo looks more like a Candytuft but not sure. I think 3 and 5 are some kind of cornflower.

Weed with black pods

Don't worry, it's an annual so you just need to pull it out. It will be back next year, yank it out when you see the flowers so that it can't seed everywhere. No need for weedkiller.
