Maybe we should close the kitchen.  There are also mice and rats throughout
the space.  They are also bad since they leave droppings everywhere and is
not very excellent for people with allergies.  The bigger problem is there
is tons of food in compost, trash barrels and around the space.  Maybe we
just need to not have food in the space.
