No one wants to talk about roaches – they’re the dirty, not-so-secret problem that many (if not most) apartment communities face. Along with bed bugs, roaches are incredibly common. Wherever food can be found, a roach won’t be far. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management says that roaches are more than a nuisance – they can create real health problems for those struggling with respiratory issues like asthma.
For many apartment hunters, roaches are a deal breaker. So how do you ensure your community is roach free? The answer lies with the experts.
Scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans conducted an experiment in a roach-infested apartment building to see how effective gel baits were in eliminating the bugs. After just three months, apartments treated with the gel baits started seeing fewer and fewer roaches. By the end of the year-long study, almost all the roaches were gone!
Maybe the advice sounds overly simplistic, but take action before the roaches show up – your tenants will thank you!
