==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 could much rather walk right in then 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.
