What are your thoughts?

    How Inaccessible Should Inaccessible Be?

    Under Maine law, rodenticide stations in schools need to be placed in areas inaccessible to students. Are locked and anchored rodent stations placed in halls considered to be inaccessible in your opinion? In mine, they are not. Such areas would be inaccessible voids, wall voids, areas behind locked doors, etc.
