Please report any pests at all (rats, cockroaches, mice, etc) at the Tuesday meeting.
 
 
==On Going==
 
===Food and Kitchen===
 
* Do not leave food out after you've left the space. Rats love left overs.
 
* Use trash cans with lids. Rats love to jump into open cans.
 
* Wash all your dishes and put them away. Rats love that you don't clean your plate.
 
 
 
===General Space===
 
* Don't create hiding space. Rats love to hide under and around tight spaces, such as build out materials.
 
* Don't create nesting spaces. Rats love them too.
 
* Don't leave the doors open during the later hours when no one is around. Rats would much rather walk right in than create a new hole to sneak in.
 
 
 
==The War on Rats==
 
===Geneva Convention===
 
* Can't kill or hurt the rats. --The Vegans
 
* Can't get a cat. --The Allergenic
 
 
 
===Defensive===
 
* Find and eradicate (clean with soap to get rid of any scent they'll want to return it) all nests.
 
** Under the stairs leading up to the fire escape.
 
** In the elevator room.
 
** Under the DJ booth.
 
** Possibly under the hack and user shelves.
 
** Possibly under all the build out materials next to the classrooms.
 
** Possibly under all the spare wood and shelves in the shop.
 
* Patch all new holes (fill with steel wool and spray foam so they wont bother with it).
 
** In the elevator room.
 
** Under the DJ booth.
 
** Under the stairs leading up to the fire escape.
 
* Install rubber gaskets/sweepers under doors to reduce space for the rats to run under.
 
** Main entrance.
 
** Not-a-fire-escape.
 
** Door at the end of the stairs under the DJ booth.
 
 
 
===Offensive===
 
* Build a better mouse trap.
 
** Trap cannot hurt the rats as to not make the vegans angry.
 
** Let go of the rats at Pumping Station: One.
 
 
 
===Experimental===
 
====Ultrasonic====
 
* Get ultrasonic emitters. [http://www.amazon.com/Victor%C2%AE-PestChaser%C2%AE-Ultrasonic-Rodent-Repellent/dp/B0015WM4QA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1267045186&sr=8-4]
 
* Set them up outside of the space.
 
** At the end of the ledge holding the lights in the main stairs.
 
** In the not-a-fire-escape stairwell.
 
** At the bottom of the stairs under the DJ booth.
 
* See if any humans can hear them.
 
 
 
====Peppermint====
 
* Get some peppermint.
 
* Spread it around the space without stinking up the space.
