WebUserControl is ambiguous in asp.net vb

I am building an asp.net vb website, and having troubles with webusercontrols.  I have several user controls: menu_top1.ascx & menu_top2.ascx & menu_aboutus.ascx.  I have several pages created that reference these controls.  I can view the pages, and look at them one at a time, however, when I publish the site through Visual Studio 2008, I begin getting errors "aa_includes_WebUserControl' is ambiguous" at each line where I reference the  user control I want to use.  I have included two web pages where I have used the webusercontrols and the .ascx files.  Thanks for the help.
