6 Things your landlord wishes you knew

things your landlord wish you knewServing Memphis, Cordova, Germantown & Collierville TN

Pest control services for apartments and condos keep us busy. The myriad of lifestyles and sanitation habits can make pest control for these residents a bit tricky, especially when dealing with ants, cockroaches, or even bedbugs. But, what if tenants were all on the same page by doing their part in pest prevention? AAA Termite & Pest Control, a pest control company in Cordova, has six things your landlord wishes you knew about pests and doing your part in preventing them.

  1. Pests can spread between units

Bugs and pests of all kinds can quickly spread to other units. No one likes a bad neighbor, so be considerate of those around you by reporting any pests issues to management immediately. Also, it is important to cooperate with management during the pest control process.

  1. Spiders aren’t the only pests that bite

Just about everyone has gotten a bug bite at some point during the night. If you have, you probably just figured a spider bit you while you were sleeping. But, spiders aren’t the only pests that can bite while you sleep. You should know that bedbugs are common reasons for waking up with bites all over your body. Other culprits to bites on your skin could be from a delayed reaction from mosquito, tick, or mite bites. Tenants who have pets may experience fleabites.

  1. Poor sanitation and water attract pests

Pests make their way indoors for various reasons, either looking for food, water, or shelter. However, some pests, such as rodents, cockroaches, and flies, may be attracted inside and stay even longer when food sources, warmth, and shelter are easily accessible. In other words, they will remain if there is no reason to leave, and all of their needs are met.

To prevent these pests from setting up camp in your unit, keep your home clean by doing the following:

  • Take the trash out regularly
  • Keep the lid on trash
  • Avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink or around the house
  • Keep floors and counters clean of food debris
  • Keep food packages tightly sealed
  1. Bedbugs have nothing to do with cleanliness

It’s important to note that even if your home is clean, and you follow the recommendations above, you still could get bedbugs. While these pests can be found in filthy conditions, they thrive off of sucking human blood. So, wherever people are, bedbugs also could live. Also, moving clothing, luggage, furniture, and boxes from one home to another can easily transport bedbugs. If your neighbor has bedbugs and you invite them over, you probably will get bedbugs too!
