Issues that require action and/or follow-up
1. There are a lot of bugs in the Experiment Hall. What can we do?

There is a significant problem with the mosquito population throughout the area this year. The best recommendation that we can make is to use personal bug repellent if the problem persists and ensure that all doors to the LOMs and Experiment Hall remain closed.
