Colony Pest Management Mentioned in New York Times

National News

Colony President Joseph Sheehan and his company are trying to find a solution to a rodent problem caused by the Atlantic Yards Arena construction project.

| July 19, 2011

NEW YORK — Colony Pest Management and its president, Joseph Sheehan, were mentioned as part of a recent New York Times article “Atlantic Yards Arena Takes Shape, but Protests Carry On.”

The article noted that one of the major problems with the Atlantic Yards Arena construction project is rats. Last month, more than 60 residents gathered in the Soapbox art gallery on Dean Street to tell horror stories of a “rat tsunami,” with rats, very likely stirred up by the construction, chewing through their car wires and destroying their engines, running rampant on doorsteps and eating through plastic garbage cans.

Bruce C. Ratner, the chairman and chief executive of Forest City Ratner Companies, said he spent two hours the next day touring the site with Joseph Sheehan, the president of a private contractor, Colony Pest Control. At a bimonthly Atlantic Yards meeting with city and state officials on Thursday, Forest City Ratner officials announced that they would give residents vouchers to purchase sturdy, rat-proof garbage cans, and that Colony Pest Control would help with a plan to control the rodents.
