10 Things Your Exterminator Won't Tell You

He's supposed to help you get rid of all the creepy crawly things around your house. But watch out: You might wind up with more problems than you started out with -- and not all of them will have six legs.

1. "Your bugs will come back -- but we might not."

Imagine waking up one morning...with ants crawling through your sheets. You rush to the bathroom, and they're zipping around the tiles. Now, in the kitchen, you find them crawling in and around your cereal boxes. Bug-out!

Too bad Anju Garg wasn't imagining things. "It was disgusting," she says of that May 2000 morning when ants attacked her Cerritos, Calif., home. Garg quickly called a local Terminix franchise, whose t

How To Remove Nicotine Stains from Walls

If you bought a house, moved into an apartment, live with a cigarette smoker or are a cigarette smoker, you may see a brownish yellowish film on your walls. This unsightly discoloration is from the nicotine content in cigarettes. The smoke leaves behind a horrid residue on surfaces. Can you imagine what it does to the lungs? Yuck! If someone smoked cigarettes inside the home, these nicotine-stains are on its. nicotine-stains are more apparent on light colored painted walls and wall paper. Darker painted walls, paneled walls and darker wall papers will also have the nicotine film covering them, but you won't see it as easily.

The nicotine film buildup and nicotine-stains should be removed before you decide to repaint your walls or just to brighten and freshen up the home. You may be surprised at how much nicotine builds up on its. Removing nicotine-stains from its will also help to cut down on the old smoke odor. The nicotine residue has a pungent stale cigarette smell and removing the nicotine from its will take away some of the stale smell. nicotine-stains need to be thoroughly removed from your walls before painting because the paint will adhere better to a cleaned and primed surface. Nicotine has an oily residue which inhibits the adhesion of paint. Thankfully, it is actually quite easy to remove nicotine buildup from walls.

To Remove nicotine-stains From Walls:

Fill a bucket with white vinegar.

Dip a sponge mop into the white vinegar.

Start at the bottom of it and go up towards the ceiling w

ith the white vinegar soaked mop. By starting at the bottom and working your way up to the top, you will avoid drip marks down your walls.

Rinse the mop in hot water after every pass to wash away the nicoti

ne on the sponge mop head.

After rinsing in hot water, dip the mop back into the white vinegar to make a second pass over it.

Line your mop up on it, next to the first pass and overlapping it by about an inch. By overlapping each cleaning pass, you won't have lines of nicotine-stains down its.

For Stubborn nicotine-stains:

Lay tarps or drop cloth on the floor.

Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar.

Fill a plastic tub or basin with baking soda.

Spray the nicotine-stain with white vinegar.

Dip a damp sponge or sponge mop into baking soda.

Rub the stains until they are gone. The mixture of baking soda and vinegar will foam up -- this is normal.

Nicotine Removal from Wallpaper

If its are covered with wall paper:

Use the same technique for nicotine removal as stated above.

Dry its with a clean dry cloth as soon as you complete one pass from floor to ceiling.

White vinegar will dissolve wall paper glue and your wall paper will lift and pucker if not dried immediately.

Stain Removal Tips

Depending on the amount of nicotine buildup and the nicotine-stains you may have to go over its several times.

Although overpowering at first, the smell of the white vinegar will dissipate fairly quickly, leaving behind a fresh clean scent.

To avoid nicotine-stains in the future, simply don't allow anyone to smoke cigarettes in the house.

Association of International Certified Professional Accountants Urges South Africa’s Audit Regulator to Reject Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation

NEW YORK & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the

Association) has voiced its strong opposition to a plan by South

Africa's Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA) to implement

mandatory audit firm rotation (MAFR).

In a written

response to IRBA's Consultation Paper, the Association, which has

offices in locations including Johannesburg, Colombo, Kuala Lumpur,

London, New York and Shanghai, wrote that MAFR "may have a negative

impact on audit quality, increase market concentration to a more limited

number of auditing firms, and will hinder, rather than promote,

transformation of the profession."

The letter, signed by Association CEO Barry C. Melancon, CPA, CGMA,

includes analysis of the most significant factors supporting the

profession's longstanding position. It notes that mandatory audit firm


Negatively impacts audit quality

Causes loss of institutional knowledge and experience

Limits auditor specialization

Creates resource strains

Could increase audit market concentration

May result in unintended costs

Limits the audit committee's ability to determine the best audit firm

for the company

Limits ability to attract and retain talent

"The Association believes that each of these factors demonstrates that

MAFR should be rejected," the letter stated. "It is clear from at least

some of the regulatory regimes that have adopted it that MAFR has not

had the intended benefits and its continuation is either being

questioned or discontinued. MAFR takes away the key responsibility of

audit committees which, along with the board of directors, are in the

best position to watch management actions and ensure that companies are

obtaining high quality audits to protect the investing public."

Concluding that MAFR is not in the public interest, risks harm to audit

quality, would impose significant costs on businesses and shareholders

without commensurate benefit, would be economically disruptive and

create other negative consequences, the Association asks that IRBA

reject a move to require it.
