Vacant Homes and Properties Face Hidden Pest Risks
That vacant, foreclosed home next door isn’t just bringing down your neighborhood’s property values. It may also be a haven for numerous pests that can threaten the health and safety of neighbors, children and pets.
Pests thrive in the conditions offered by a foreclosed property with nobody home. Vacant properties offer a perfect habitat for a variety of problematic pests.
In the interest of preserving public health, it is imperative that vacant structures and properties be treated with pest control products to keep roaches, rats, spiders, stinging insects from moving in. Rodents and roaches, are often thought of as merely nuisances, but they can pose serious health risks for people and pets if they are left unchecked.
Rats, mice and roaches can thrive in empty houses and other structures like tool sheds left unused and untreated. Roaches have been proven to carry and spread E. coli, streptococcus and Salmonella along with other diseases and allergens, while rats are responsible for thousands of doctor and hospital visits each year due to bites and human contact with their feces and urine.
The threats each of these pests pose are very real and can become serious health and safety hazards if they are permitted to thrive. The challenge with foreclosed homes is finding the proper authorities to take responsibility for pest control measures that will keep neighborhoods safe and pest-free.
Each homeowner has the right to choose and use the products they need to protect their own home and property, and the best defense against pests is the responsible use of pest control products.

Mice are mostly active during dusk or night; they do not like bright lights. They live in a wide variety of hidden places that are near food sources and construct nests from various soft materials. Continue reading
