Pest control is one of the things that people do not seriously consider. In the excitement of buying a new home, many people forget about the importance of inspection. If the house has been vacant for a while, it is very likely that it has bedbugs, cockroaches and other insects. A good idea is to call a local pest control company to inspect the premises before moving day.
Morning Insider is used to receiving a lot of tips. However, when a viewer emailed that her Arlington Heights apartment is beyond horrendous, Morning Insider had to check to it out. The email stated that there were earthworms crawling inside the apartment. CBS2’s Tim McNicholas reported that it is in sharp contrast to the way that the suburban complex is advertised.
The Residences at Arlington Heights include a bowling alley, sparkling pool, pool tables and pinball. The public areas are an epitome of luxury but according to Angela Blakely, the complex also includes bugs, roaches, ants and spiders. There are also gnats everywhere. Angela also reported seeing a mouse.
Since last month, Blakely’s apartment has been filled with different traps from the sticky and homemade to the professionally manufactured. Blakely is frustrated because she fears bugs. Bugs have bitten her son repeatedly. The gnat trap in her son’s room managed to collect a lot of pests in just one hour.
There were several pest control attempts but all of them failed. Blakely requested to be moved to another apartment in the complex but management is unwilling to fix the issue. Management has addressed the worms that it claimed to appear due to rain.
When CBS2’s Tim McNicholas talked to the onsite property manager, the response was to call the police on him. JRK Property Holding promises unrivalled, warm and welcoming customer service but Blakely is essentially homeless at this point.
One of the most important aspects that a property manager has to address is pest control. There is local pest control company that can be called anytime to deal with pest issues. Regular inspections are very important for properties to make sure that it is safe and free from all kinds of pests.
