California State University 'might be in need of pest control'
Some of the buildings at California State University could be in need of pest control measures to get rid of mice and rats, it has been claimed.
Rick Finden, associate director of plant operations, said a number of buildings on campus contain rodents.
He told the Collegian that the police building has struggled to get rid of mice and that the Phoebe Conley Art Building has had a rat sighting.
Dennis Dooley, owner of a local pest control firm, said there are regularly calls at this time of year about mice on campus.
One of the reasons for this is that rodents are often driven inside by the cold weather, Mr Finden commented.
"It's definitely more of a problem in the winter, because it gets cold outside, there's nothing to eat and so [rodents] just come in. It becomes a real challenge," he commented.
Last month, Sammy Berg, a senior environmental health specialist for Thurston County Public Health and Social Services, told the Olympian that cold weather often leads to an increase in rat activity.
