Pest Control Tips For Your Long Island Property

Pest Control Long Island

It’s critical to take control of potential pest issues on your property proactively and to eliminate unwanted rodents and insects before the problem becomes serious.

The first step in limiting the pests that can annoy your tenants is to stay up to date on the pest issues that are common on Long Island. Talk to your fellow facility and property managers to discuss what’s been “bugging” them since all pest problems are regional in nature. Its very common for a property to get hit by the same infestation as neighboring building.

A recent article from the facilitiesnet website explains:

"Once you have an idea of the season’s big pest, do some basic research on “how to get rid of Pest X.” This simple effort can help you prepare for these pests before they damage your property or annoy your tenants. If you’re not entirely sure of the pest you’re seeing, visual guides are available on many insects and rodents, allowing you to ID the pest on your own"

For more insight on how to keep mice, ants and other pests away from your properties, read the full article on the facilitiesnet website.
