Pests Don’t Have a Schedule
A pest infestation can happen any time, so it’s vital that North Carolina landlords have someone like our local exterminator, who they can contact right away and have every confidence in receiving a quick, effective solution. After all, a landlord’s number one goal is keeping his tenants happy, and every second counts. The more upset a tenant gets – especially over something as unsightly as a pest – the more likely it is to sour the tenant’s long-term perception of the apartment.
Also, where there’s one pest, there’s usually more – especially because most pests (mice, cockroaches, etc.) are exceptionally fast breeders. It’s vital for a landlord to bring in professional exterminator before a small problem becomes a big-time infestation.
Most tenants and landlords who see a pest don’t have much of an idea of what they’re looking at. Whatever it is, it’s small, ugly, and needs to be dealt with asap. For landlords wanting to assuage the tenant’s concerns and nip the problem in the bud, in the urgency of the moment there’s sometimes a tendency to act too quickly. This is understandable, but something you want to avoid – especially in terms of applying rodent killers, pesticides, and the like, which can be harmful in the short- and long-term. The best approach is to take a breath and contact our local pest control team, who are trained to evaluate nests, droppings, gnawing, and other evidence, confirm the pest’s identity, and put a safe, effective plan into action.
Tracking The Source
It’s understandable that a landlord would want a quick fix, i.e. the extermination of all visible pests, so that the tenant can come down off of their kitchen chair. Unfortunately, settling for a short-term solution – in this case, killing only what can be seen – is a recipe for failure. In actuality, what needs to happen is a comprehensive investigation of the property so that the source of the pests can be confirmed and subsequently destroyed. Every pest has a preferred hiding place/breeding ground, or in some cases several. For example, bedbugs favor outlet covers and tight, dark places in furniture, while roaches love any spot that’s warm and damp. Also, many pests only show themselves at night. Thus, to really solve the problem requires a thorough analysis of the property’s infrastructure and exterior, using professional-grade equipment and know-how.
With Action Pest Exterminating on your side, you won’t have to wait long for a solution – and it feels awfully good when the extermination process begins. For maximum satisfaction though, avoid the DIY approach and rely on our experienced exterminators. We know what’s needed to conduct a safe, thorough, permanent extermination, exercising the right precautions throughout.
