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.

Desperate for College Advise/Help

I am an adult almost 40 and I started a master's program only to realize that it was nationally accredited. I am worried about finishing here because many places especially regionally accredited colleges will not hire someone without at least 18 regionally accredited graduate hours from what I have seen. The school I am currently at is Columbia Southern University which is very reasonable but only nationally accredited. Time is also important. The other two schools I am thinking about changing to are Western Governors University or Liberty University. I have searched many reviews and such but still do not have the information I need to make a decision. Both colleges are regionally accredited and both offer my program fully online but how creditable will the degree. Liberty is appealing because they are close by but it will take me much longer. Western governors is appealing because I can finish much faster. I guess I need someone that knows the college system and I may want to work at a college on day and let me know which one would be more creditable and such with real facts I can count on. Oh by the way my bachelor's degree is national accredited through Columbia Southern and these are the best options I found that will take my nationally accredited degree to allow me to pursue a regionally accredited M.B.A. The question should I stay at Columbia Southern or transfer to Liberty University or Western Governors University.

GRASS

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO ASK A QUESTION AS IT RELATES TO GRASS ERADICATION. MY LANDSCAPER TREATED MY FRONT LAWN ON FEBRUARY 24, 2014 WITH FERTILIZATION WITH CRABGRASS PRE-EMERGENT. THE FOLLOWING MONTH, MARCH, 2014, MY ENTIRE LAWN HAD NO MORE GRASS EXCEPT FOR CLUMPS OF WEEDS AND WHAT APPEARS TO BE CRABGRASS. I HAD BERMUDAGRASS EVER SINCE I LIVED IN MY HOUSE IN 2001 AND I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. NO SOIL COMPACTION, NO IRRIGATION PROBLEM AND NO DRAINAGE PROBLEM. THE SOIL SOAKED THE RAINWATER. I NEVER AERATED NOR RE-SEEDED BECAUSE MY LAWN WAS IN SATISFACTORY SHAPE. DID THIS LANDSCAPER USE A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE BY MISTAKE OR A CONTACT HERBICIDE OR A SYSTEMIC HERBICIDE. IF HE USED A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE WHY DIDN'T THE WEEDS AND CRABGRASS DIE? I KNOW THAT POST-EMERGENT IS BOTH A SELECTIVE AND NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE AND THAT PRE-EMERGENT IS SELECTIVE. I ALSO KNOW THAT A CONTACT HERBICIDE KILLS ONLY THE GREEN TISSUES ( GRASS) ABOVE THE SOIL AND THAT SYSTEMIC A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE MOVES WITHIN THE PLANT FROM THE POINT OF APPLICATION. MY QUESTION IS THIS. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A POST-EMERGENT CONTACT HERBICIDE WAS SPRAYED ON MY LAWN THAT KILLED MY GRASS ABOVE THE SOIL AND DIDN'T KILL SEEDS GERMINATING BELOW THE SOIL. I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A STRONG PROBABILITY THAT A NON-SELECTIVE HERBICIDE WAS USED BY MISTAKE WHETHER IT WAS CONTACT OR SYSTEMIC. I WILL TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR KIND REPLY. PLEASE REPLY. I WILL BE VERY THANKFUL. THANK YOU. SINCERELY, JEROME WILSON 2016 HARVEST RED ROAD INDIAN TRAIL, NC 28079
