Pests - the non-human variety:

Reported Sightings

  • Rat sighted on several occasions in upstairs fridge area
  • Two rats sighted in FnB kitchen downstairs

Catches

  • Caught mouse Sept 7 (several days old) in upstairs fridge area, to the left of the metal rack that is perpendicular to the wall
  • Caught mouse Sept 7 in mushroom closet
  • Caught mouse Sept 14 (~2 days old?) in upstairs fridge area, to the left of the metal rack that is perpendicular to the wall

Rodents

We currently have two electronic mouse traps, and one electronic rat trap (post here if you know of any more!)

  • Mouse trap #1:
Current location: upstairs fridge area, to the left of the metal rack that is perpendicular to the wall
  • Mouse trap #2:
Current location: upstairs fridge area, underneath the wooden rack of shelves against the wall, to the left of the fridges
  • Rat Trap:
Current location: in open corner in the "mushroom closet" - left storage room off CCL.

Flies

The best way to keep flies under control is not to let let any food sit out to rot, and keep a tight fitting lid on any composting waste containers.

Fly catcher ribbons are cheap, non-toxic, and reasonably effective. We may also want to invest in some fluorescent fly lights for the trash room and Fermentation Station in CCL.
