Put 1,000 college students — and their cheese pizza boxes — in one building, and chances are decent rodents will also move in. That’s been the case at Creswell Hall, a high-rise dorm for first-year students.

But for some reason, possibly because of the mild winter, the rat problem has been worse this year, according to the UGA housing director.

“We’ve not seen anything like this before,” Gerard J. Kowalski told the AJC Thursday.

It could also be because of construction on campus, forcing rodents to find new homes, the company, based in Norcross, is responsible for helping the university control the rodents.

Plus, where there are a few rats, there likely will be more — fast.

Rodents are very prolific animals. They’re going to have litters on a very regular basis.

But don’t worry, Mom and Dad. There’s no reason to force Junior to move home. Nobody has been bitten. But a few cleaning lessons may be a good idea.

Kowalski said UGA and Peachtree Pest Control have sealed the dormitory to prevent other rats from moving in while trapping the existing invaders inside. Some mechanical traps have been used.

Also, residents have been urged not to leave food and garbage within reach of rats, and students have obliged, Kowalski said.

Other, nearby dorms have been checked, but so far the problem has been isolated to Creswell.

“It’s not like they’re moving from one building to the other,” Kowalski said.

which is an exclusive manufacturer of rodenticides and rodent control products for the pest control and agricultural industries on six continents ( Steve presented a two hour continuing education webinar on rodenticide label changes taking effect on June 4, 2011 which affects the way some rodenticides are used and sold. He covered basic biology and habits of the three Commensal rodents – the House Mouse, the Roof Rat and Norway Rat – that are generally targeted by the use of rodenticides. Steve also covered the conditions that lead to problems with these pests such as poor sanitation, poor building maintenance and the need for these items to be addressed and corrected to make any rodent control program successful.

Bowen, Training and Quality Assurance Director with Peachtree Pest Control said, “It is great to have people like Steve who will come and share his wealth of knowledge about his products, the label changes that are getting ready to take effect, and how to control rodents more effectively so that Peachtree can stay proficient at controlling rodents.” The EPA has a weblink ( with detailed information on these rodenticide label changes.

Dear Peachtree Pest Control,

Thank you for supporting our Breast Cancer community, the money raised in this past weekends walk will stay right here in Atlanta, going towards various cancer and wellness centers to help your neighbors, relatives and friends going through the journey. The walk was emotional, inspiring and an amazing experience. Saturdays walk ended up being around 22 miles and Sunday ended the 32 trek at Pemberton Place for an amazing cause.

I am truly grateful to you for your support and encouragement. I walked along side one of my dearest friends Danae. It was great having her by my side. The weather could not have been Carter and Associatesbetter, and I also realized how beautiful our city is! We walked starting at the Marriott Marquise to many places; Midtown, Piedmont Park, Ansley Park, Morningside, Decatur, Atlantic Station, Georgia Tech and MANY other places :)!
