  • Oct. Café Sci: Rat Detectives: a Halloween special, with Kaylee Byers
    Tue. Oct. 31, 7:30pm at Yagger's Downtown Restaurant and Sports Bar

    https://www.facebook.com/events/268332693657794/

    The unstoppable Kaylee Byers spoke to us about what to expect at her spooOOooky Halloween Cafe Sci presentation:

    "Few animals are as appropriate to discuss on Halloween as the rat.

    Just mentioning these critters in conversation (and believe me, I have experience) elicits both exclamations of disgust and appreciation for their perseverance in spite of our control efforts.

    In the past year, pest control professionals have reported an increase in rat sightings, suggesting that rat populations in Vancouver are on the rise. But do we need to worry? Over the past 7 years, the Vancouver Rat Project has worked to understand the risks posed by rats to Vancouver's Downtown Eastside residents.

    In this talk, I will discuss what we have learned about Vancouver's rats and the diseases they carry, as well as how certain human interventions can have the paradoxical effect of increasing disease spread among rats."

    Bring your goosebumps and join us as we kick off the Fall Season of Cafe Scientifique Vancouver!
