We have squirrels in the walls of our house and we need help now. It sounds like they are going to be in the house with me any minute now. We had dicovered the squirrels were living under our patio at first, we removed the wood and took the nest out. Then we closed off as many openings as we could find. Now the squirrels have moved into a wall where it is brick on the outside and we cannot get them out. Please call me as soon as possible.

1.20 Are there professional-grade products for pest control which are as effective as hiring a company?

Q. The only pests we have seen are spiders, and occasionally inside the house. I have seen things at Lowe's, but are they effective? Can they be sprayed inside and outside? What is a good price for hiring someone to do pest control?

A. Chances are that there are many effective products out there... In fact, many people don't realize that what pest control companies often use are products available to the every day homeowner. I'm not an expert on spider control, but you would very likely find a suitable product by contacting a couple companies as if you were interested in hiring them and then asking them what they use. By contacting 2 or 3 companies you will probably find a product that both works and is available. As far as hiring a pest control company goes, you should just contact a few and get their quote for your situation. Usually competition provides an easily determined market price. Some helpful guidelines to be thinking about when hiring a pest control pro can be found in the source section.

1.20 How do I get my Earnest Money back??

Q. I want to get my earnest money back, and I want ALL OF IT !! I made an offer on a house with the intentions of living in it not rehabbing it. The offer was accepted, and we had the home inspected. There are a lot of things wrong with the house. It costs more money to repair these things than I can afford, and besides I'd rather buy something worth the money I would have to spend, rrather than put money into the house for major things. The house needs new windows, tuckpointing all around and a new roof. Here is a letter I wrote to the seller, tell me what u think. HELP !!!! All these problems need to be remedied before this transaction can go any further. If the issues are not addressed we will continue on our search for a home. FURNACE The furnace/central air needs to be properly and completely installed and functioning. The furnace needs a shut off valve, and a plastic exhaust pipe. Debris in the "clean out" area at the base of the chimney should be removed as part of system service. PLUMBING The old steel piping is subject to corrosion on the interior of the pipe. As corrosion builds up, the inside diameter of the pipe becomes constricted, resulting in a loss of water pressure. This piping is typically replaced when the loss of pressure can no longer be tolerated. ELECTRICAL Extension cords should not be used as permanent wiring. This wiring should be removed through out the house. Poor connections between newer wiring and the old-knob-and-tube wiring were observed. All connections of this type should be performed within junction boxes, fitted with cover plates. The installation of a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is required in the kitchen and bathroom. GFCI offers increased protection from shock or electrocution. STRUCTURE Evidence of termite damage was observed and there is risk of additional hidden damage since termites can do a substantial amount of damage. If the property hasn't already been treated, a licensed pest control specialist should be engaged to eliminate further termite activity within the home. All damaged wood should be repaired or replaced. ROOFING The downspout should discharge water at least 5 feet from the house. Storm water should be encouraged to flow away from the building at the point of discharged. Install downspout at left rear section of house. Stairs leading to basement need hand rails. Drop ceiling in same area needs to be repaired. The fireplace needs a damper. All appliances must stay.

A. Well did you make your offer based on it passing inspection or your obtaining financing? Those are two very common terms when putting down earnest money. Did you understand what Earnest Money was? The earnest money is an amount of money that the buyer puts up to show he or she is serious about purchasing the property. The money represents the buyer's commitment to buy and acts as an unofficial option on the property. After receiving an earnest money check, the seller will usually stop showing the property, and wait to see if the buyer can get a mortgage. Earnest money is important to the transaction because it shows the seller that the buyer is operating in good faith (hence the name, "earnest"). The bigger the deposit, the more reassuring it is to the seller, who thinks, "This buyer is serious.'' It also ties the buyer to the property and keeps him or her from looking for additional properties. When Do I Get The Earnest Money Back? If the sale goes through, the earnest money is used as part of the cash down payment and is paid to the seller. If the sale does not go through because of a reason covered by a contingency in the contract (if, for example, the buyer could not get a mortgage), the seller should sign a release of escrow and the earnest money will be refunded to the buyer. The earnest money should also be refunded to the buyer if the sale does not go through because of a problem on the seller's side. If, however, the buyer backs out of the deal for no reason at all, or for a reason that is not covered by a contingency, return of the earnest money may go to the seller. FSBO (For Sale By Owner) Earnest Money If negotiating directly with the seller without the assistance of a Realtor®, never give the earnest money directly to the seller. If you are dealing with a for-sale-by-owner seller who insists upon earnest money before a contract can be executed, write the check to their lawyer or closing attorney or your lawyer or closing attorney, and write fiduciary agent after the lawyers name. This money will then go into a trust, or escrow, account until the negotiations are completed, the contract signed, and all contingencies met. If the deal falls apart, you'll get it back. But if you give the earnest money directly to the seller, you may never see it again, or you may have to go to court to get it back. Good Luck to you.

1.20 How do I get rid of carpenter bees in my log home?

Q. I am paying a local pest control company almost $400 per year to treat for Carpenter Bees.

A. My understanding is all it takes is a good coat of paint or stain to stop them from pentrating wood. They're not too strong so proper maintenance of the wood surface is all it takes. Once they're in, though, you probably want professional help.

1.20 Tenant Security Deposit/Tenant right's?

Q. Please be patient this is a pretty detailed list of reasons and details following my move out. I recieved a notice to vacate in December due to my landlord wanting to move back into the residence to save money. My lease was up on Feb 2, 2011 but due to my landlord having surgery (implants)she asked if I moved out a week or two early she would pro-rate the rent. I surrendered my keys to her on January 26, 2011 which she would owe me for 5 days of rent which she said she would return to me with my security deposit. She then picked up the keys at my new residence only 4 houses down from my old one (the one she currently resides in). After several text messages and phone calls she failed to let me know about the deposit. I recieved a certified letter postmarked March 4, 2011 with a list of deductions from the deposit plus an additional 777.41 on top of that. Here is the list with some explanations. A/C coil/blower cleaning $350.00 She states due to dirty air filters. We changed them once a month and the outside unit went out 7/09 and she did not get the inside serviced she only had the outside unit installed with a used unit that cost her $300.00. Junk Hauling $200.00 This is due to a new privacy fence the neighbor put up without any money from the LL he bought all wood himself and my husband helped with the labor, but he left all wood in our yard stating since she did not help out money wise with the fence she could haul it away but now she is charging us for that. I felt this was an issue between them two. Hole in backyard $ 175.00 The phone company was putting in new lines and dug a hole in the yard but did not come to fill it or finish the work. I did not have service with AT&T I had Time Warner so I feel that is definantly not my responsibility. She states she called and they have no records of this. Back Yard Mowing $150 Due to the large hole and the fence it was hard to weed eat around it and due to a rainy January we did not cut the grass in the back so I feel I should be held responsible for that. Exterminator $427.09 She had an exterminator come out and perform pest control and she recieved a years service and took that out of my deposit. I can understand being charged for a month but a whole year come on? Painting $200.00 Upon move in the house was painted crazy with one blue wall and the rest white but with dirty hand prints everywhere and she gave us permission to paint it so we painted it dark brown to cover the dirt and because it matched our furniture. Which made the house look quite nice. Also we put in flooring in the kitchen at our own expense to make the house look nice which we understood this was something we would not be getting credit of we did that on our own. We just like our house to look nice and presentable for our guests. Hole behind bedroom door $30.00 There was no door stop so this caused a small hole where knob hit the wall. This I agreed to pay. Hole in Fireplace $30.00 I am not sure how that happened but agreed to pay that as well. Now from what I researched under the Texas Property code if the landlord does not either return security deposit or itemized deductions they are acting in bad faith and cannot charge for damages and must return the security deposit. I am not saying I won't pay for any fees for some of the mess because I will but I feel she is taking it to the extreme and just does not want to give it back to me. Let me also include that she picked up the keys on 1-26-11 and the next day they converted the garage into a bedroom and the trash she had hauled from the back also included the trash she had from the garage and from her move in on 1-28-11. I saw the invoice from the haul/lawn company and it was dated 2-11-11 and I have neighbors confirming this. As far as the charges she only paid for the extermination and the holes in the walls but just got bids on the others. Can she do this to me? Are these acceptable fees? Should I be charged for each one? I am just a little upset she always said how nice we made her house look and made all repairs except for a/c on our own paid on time in fact almost a week early everytime. It seems her breast implant cost her to much and now she has bids but no actual receipts to return at least my pro-rated rent or a portion of the deposit. So I am very upset and am thinking of consulting an attorney but not sure if I would even have a chance. Help! I need some advice. Should I just swallow the bitter pill and pay these crazy fees??

A. Go to a local reputable real estate office and ask them to refer you to a lawyer that can help you. Usually offices work with ones that get the job done in a way that gets people to come back as customers. Hope this helps and good luck. You can investigate these things on your own too. Like the hole in the backyard. Don't just rely on her word. IMPORTANT: DON'T PAY ANY MORE MONEY UNTIL YOU TALK TO A LAWYER THAT WILL HELP YOU.

1.20 What to put in walls to keep spiders out of house?

Q. I recently had a flood in my house. The restoration company tore everything out, including 2 feet of drywall from the floor up. My whole downstairs is exposed (I can see studs, etc.) Soon they will be patching everything up, but before they do I was wondering if there was anything I could put at the base of the wall to help with spider control. We have so many spiders in our house and this could be a good opportunity to put a barrier down in the walls to help deter them.

A. The best thing to do is ask the restoration company or a pest control company.

1.20 How to choose and deal with a lawn pest control company?

Q. I am considering to sign up a two year contract with the Southern Pest Control company for the lawn and termites treatment. I have had previous negative experiences with other lawn pest control companies, where a perfectly green and healthy lawn got weeds and dry patches. Maybe I need to change my approach? Please share your experience with the Southern Pest Control company, if you use them. Thanks!

A. There's accumulated advice on making a good choice in the page: http://www.drdons.net/choose.htm Rmember that you are primarily after the pest management and not just regular pesticide application. Hire guys that think about what they are doing.

1.20 Is Pest control a decent paying job for a man to support his family?

Q. I have been working in the Pest Control field for almost a year now, and I love it! I enjoy everything about my job. But right now I am kind of at a cross roads and my wife and I are about to start a family. I would like to hear from individuals who are raising a family on a pest control salary. Is this a well paying career? Obviously I am not looking to be rich, but I would like to stay in the pest management field if it is a good career to have.

A. I had a guy that work for me that was in the pest control business for 12 years but the benefits were bad but he loved the job.

1.20 Do you hire a pest control service for your home?

Q. I just moved to Roseville, CA, and bought my first home. I always figured if I had an insect problem, that I could handle it myself. Some have told me that using a pest control service is a good idea. Do you? What do you think?

A. Our land lord is supposed to do ours but they have not in years.
