PEST INFESTATIONS

Important Notice about Pest Infestation

Perhaps due to changes in the weather, or simply due to changes in the rodent population in the Northeast, we’ve run into an increasing number of pest infestations from mice and other critters at some customer sites.

Unfortunately, the droppings left by some of these critters can be dangerous to you as well as to our moving crews, and sanitizing aras infested by pests is not our area of expertise. In fact, OSHA regulations prevent us from moving items from spaces where there’s pest infestation.

The following recommendations are offered in hopes of avoiding unwanted surprises and delays in your move.

  1. Before your move date, look through all the spaces where our crews will need to be (including the attic, garage, basement, storage sheds, and off-site self-storage units). What you’re looking for are signs of pest infestation, which is often most obvious by visible droppings.
  2. If the infestation is minimal, you may wish to sanitize the area yourself. There are several sites on the web which offer advice on how to do this as safely as possible. For your convenience, here are a few of the links we’ve found, although we urge you to research sites yourself to ensure you have a full understanding of the dangers and what’s involved before you begin:
    www.cdc.gov/rodents/cleaning
    www.buzzle.com/articles/cleaning-mouse-droppings.html
    www.orkin.com/rodents/mouse-control/how-to-clean-up-after-mice-infestation
  3. If the infestation is more than you feel you can handle, there are outside services which provide this type of cleaning. Two companies serving the Northeast are:
    www.servpro.com
    www.servicemaster.com

If you’ll be moving items into a self-storage unit, or into areas where critters may find access:

There are web pages dedicated to providing information on how to “pest-proof” your home and storage areas, so you can avoid infestation in the future. Again, here are a few of the sites we’ve found, but since this isn’t our area of expertise, we urge you to do your own research as well:

http://www.insideselfstorage.com/articles/2011/05/tips-for-preventing-pest-infestations-in-selfstorage.aspx
www.ppp.purdue.edu/Pubs/ppp34.html

This is not a problem we’re happy to report, but it is one we feel you should know about before your move.

Sincerely,
Michael Stamm
President
