Type of Culminating Activity

Student research paper


This project was about eliminating a potentially dangerous and costly problem in my neighborhood. Rodent infestation had destroyed my yard as well those of two close neighbors. Holes and tunnels were hazards to us and our animals, while also damaging our sprinkler systems and being aesthetically displeasing. The project utilized new research and traditional methods to provide an ethical preventative and eradicative method of rodent removal. The stakeholders’ attitudes regarding their property, safety, and pest itself, were all considered to come up with the best solution possible for our situation. No rodent was caught but mitigation of any future problems, including sprays, repairs, and planting, were all used effectively to this end.
