Please be aware of the cockroaches living on the kitchen tile 
counter under objects holding tools and spices.  They've been 
there long enough to have babies.  Last Friday I saw many tiny 
ones and a few bigger ones.  I first noticed medium sized ones
about two weeks ago.

Dawn Ultra® dishwashing liquid is effective in controlling many 
insicets including the German cockroach (Blattella germanica).
Proper use causes 100% mortality.

There are many people using the kitchen throughout the day, but 
they are not actively working on discouraging or eradicating
cockroaches.  Regular thorough cleaning of all kitchen surfaces
using Dawn Ultra, and the continued stocking and use of Down 
Ultra is rcommended.

The rodent / mouse problem is well know.  At the moment only 
mice are seen late at night.  They are somewhat tame and will 
walk around the kitchen area and elsewhere while people continue 
to work.  Occasionally there are discussions about catching 
mice a live and then releasing them outside.   Perhaps live
traps for both mice and rats, with immediate relocation should 
be a regular NB activity?
