Hording can lead to pest issues - Boston, MA

It is a disease. In many cases it is a sad and tragic turn of events in a person's life that make them become horders. I know it too well because it happened in my own family. They can not help themselves and continue hording despite family, friend, & legal intervention. The reason I write this is because I have come accross hording in the pest control industry far too many times. What prompted me to post this was the case I visited this week. It was an apartment in downtown Boston and it was part of HUD (housing & urban developement) affordable housing initiatives. The common areas plus exterior were in fantastic shape. In fact you could eat off the floor it was that clean! The unit I inspected was quite the opposite! The clutter, food debris, and overall filth was astonishing. There was evidence of a sizable mouse infestation and plenty of flying insect activity. To my surprise there were no German Cockroach activity at the time of my inspection but it was just a matter of time. Unfortunately relatives and state agencies could not successfully help so the tenant was close to eviction. The point story is that if you are in an apartment building, condo, brownstone, or any structure that is attached to others or just seperated by a wall you run the risk of pests because of your neighbors living quarters. If an adjacent unit or attached building has a serious pest problem then these pests will move or relocate because of over crowding or over population. This can also be true of commercial properties like restaurants and food markets. There is little that can be done unless we are able to get to the infested area because the source will always provide plenty of breeding opportunities so the pests can thrive. No matter how neat & clean you are it is possible that you can have pests when a serious infestation is on the other side of your walls!
