Dealing With Pests in Vacant Real Estate

If you’re dealing in real estate the chances are good that you’ll be requiring the services of an exterminator at some point. Pests like ants, roaches, termites, rodents and even bed bugs are causing infestations in lots of homes that are vacant while on the market. A handful of these homes such as foreclosure and short sale properties may have never had adequate visits by an exterminator due neglect but it’s never too late to treat a property.

Don’t assume that just because the beds have been removed from a home that bed bugs can’t still be residing there. As one of the most common pests these days, bed bugs hang out in any dark areas they can find. Bed bugs are primarily nocturnal and feed on humans — biting them as they sleep, sometimes unnoticed, until the victim experiences a rash, often with allergic reactions. In addition to skin reactions, signs of bed bugs include fecal spots, blood smears on sheets, and molts. These elusive bugs nest in fabric folds and dark crevices where they also lay eggs. Very difficult to see, the bugs emit a characteristic smell described as similar to almonds or over-ripe raspberries.  Infestation often occurs before the bugs are noticed, and complete removal requires specialized insecticides administered by professionals.
