As an old timer,life alumni member, I thought it would be wise to ask good ole Ohio State extension service. We have an animal rummaging around in the attic. What are the best and most economical way to get rid of it?

Bugs in wall

Hello! Can you tell me what the bugs in this picture are? That hold just appeared. We thought we had dinged it but now think the bugs are chewing through from the inside. Hope it’s something I can deal with myself during this corona virus time.

Is there any difference in using liquid calcium spray vs ag lime on hay fields? Sprays claim to work faster; is this true? Do the effects last as long as ag lime on hay fields? Thank you, Rob Burns Bethe, OH

Trimming arborvitae branches to trunk

I have what I believe is a large arborvitae growing against my garage. It’s maybe about 12-13 feet tall. It’s on the west corner of my vegetable garden and it blocks several hours of sun, so I’d like to cut it somehow. Removing it all together isn’t an option, but I was considering removing all the branches from the bottom 6 or 7 feet, leaving it in a kindof deciduous shape. My hope was that this would allow a couple more hours of sunlight to the garden. But I’m afraid that cutting this much off will damage or kill the shrub. Can you tell me if this is possible? Thanks! ~Sarah
