How can I safely rid my vegetable garden of grubs?
You can use grub treatment in the vegetable garden, but I would wait several weeks before eating anything from the garden, just to be on the safe side.
Are you sure it is grubs? I would suspect that your problem may instead be from slugs. They tend to creep in at night, chew up leaves and be gone by morning. To test to see if it is slugs, leave a pan of beer nearby overnight. If it is slugs, you will find a few in the beer in the morning.

What do you do with leftover pesticides?
Contact your local Department of Waste Treatment, or Hazardous Waste Removal, and ask them what are the protocols for your area.
I have 2 queen palm trees and one is infested with fire ants. I looked around the tree for a mound but didn't find any. I assume they made a home inside the tree. What should I use to get rid of the ants? Thanks Jim
Use ant traps, try to find traps that list Fire Ants. Place them around the Palm where you are seeing the ant activity. Don't water, as to get the ant traps wet. Continue this until you see the ants are gone.
You can use an ant spray for immediate ant control, but you need to kill the nest to get rid of the ants completely.
How do I get rid of and control ants attacking my rose bushes and dwarf Meyer lemon tree? I find ants, they appear to be black ants, crawling on the leaves of my rose bushes and on the leaves of the dwarf lemon tree. I also find them coming out of the ground fron underneath the roses bushes and lemon tree.
Ants can be killed by pouring hot water into their nest. This will not harm the roses. Otherwise an insecticide for aphids will probably work.
Birds are tearing into screens until they get access to dead bugs. I guess taking the screens off is one answer or washing out screens every day but I cannot drag a hose with me all around the duplex. I live in north central Texas. They eat into the night and are driving us nuts! Help!
You can try using sound or noise to deter the birds. I have heard of people using blinking christmas light strands to keep birds away.
More recently, the sap has become abundant and the aphids are everywhere. In years past, we had many ladybugs here but not seeing them as often now. Tree is about 35-40 feet and hangs over my beautiful deck. I am having to rinse the deck daily, as it is so covered with sap that your feet stick to the decking. Is there a way to treat the tree during spring? We had some sap in the years past but nothing like it is this year. We have had excessive rain this year. I live in NW Georgia.
The 'sap' is actually called Honeydew, it is the secretion from the insects.
Normally Neem Oil can be used to treat the insects but a tree the size that you have would be difficult without a professional.
