Nutgrass

My horse pasture is overrun with nutgrass this year. I see the best recommendation is Outrider, you are right, expensive! Any alternatives that allow for grazing a few weeks? One sight stated Roundup would kill with 2 or more applications, is that a possibility? Since it is thick, should i wait til fall frost? Thanks!

To clarify my question; unable to edit

I live in a 70-year-old house and am in the process of remodeling. I had a bat enter my living quarters and fly around on two occasions. I believe it was the same bat because the first time it was caught and released into the wild, and the second time it was sent to be tested for rabies. It tested negative. Could I speak with you by phone, please. I believe the problem might be rats living in the dirt portion of my basement. I base that belief on the fact that I had a mouse infestation in my kitchen cabinets in the early spring. I thought that problem was taken care of since all points where they could enter the house were closed by using Great Stuff. The dirt portion of the basement is not accessible to humans because of a concrete wall. There are loud thumping noises in the night which makes me believe it is rats. I have heard them in the walls of the living room which is located over the dirt portion. I would deeply appreciate any advice. My phone number is 336-469-7167.

Is a bat box necessary?

I am a 72-year-old widow. I am "scared to death" of bats. They are living in the basement of my house. One came into the living room on two separate occasions and flew all over my living quarters. It was caught by men experienced and released into the wild only to return. I cannot get a good night's sleep for wondering if one will find its way in again. I have business files stored in my basement and am afraid to go there to access them. I have done lots of reading and realize that 1 out of 100 carry rabies. If you can give me any advice I would really appreciate it. I have been in touch with animal control and the public health department. They have helped, but the problem is not solved. I live in Wilkes County in the foothills of North Carolina. My email address isbarbaraowings@icloud.com.

BONAP website, THE single best plant website in all of North America, that you fail to list.

Why do you not include the Biota of North America Program (BONAP) within your list of outstanding plant websites? This is a publicly held website, which has been cited and used by hundred's of thousand's of botanists throughout the world. The Director of BONAP, Dr. John Kartesz, originally from McKeesport Pa. is also the individual responsible for developing the USDA PLANTS database, which you do list! The BONAP database began in 1969 as a vast collection of note cards, now digitized and includes over 6,000,000 US county-level records, more than 350,000 colored photographs, and over 1,500 botanical fields; all fully interactive. That is twice as many photographs, and three times county records as USDA PLANTS, plus hundreds more botanical fields! BONAP has become the gold standard for scores of plant nurseries nationwide, plus all of the State Heritage Programs of NatureServe, most natural resource agencies of the U.S.federal government, most major herberia and other plant repositories throughout North America, plus hundreds of other natural history groups, such as the National Audubon Society. Please take a look at BONAP.org so that you can assess the website for yourself.
