Pests in Storage Units
It is an unfortunate reality that storage units are an ideal place for pests to live. Rodents, cockroaches, bed bugs, moths, and other creatures are very attracted to storage units and love to build homes inside them. This is because storage units:
- Provide good shelter for them—dark, protected areas are a pest’s favorite place to live
- Often go undisturbed for long periods of time
- Are full of items that serve as a protection for their nests and homes
- Sometimes have food in them
Be Protected at Apex Storage
Because storage units are an appealing place for pests to infest, it is important to take proactive steps to prevent infestations. At Apex Storage, that is exactly what we do. We have teamed with a local pest control company to routinely inspect and treat our storage units. We also make our storage units a much less appealing place for pests to live by:
- Making sure there are no cracks or holes in the foundation and the door seals tightly
- Keeping shrubbery like trees and bushes away from the storage units
- Keeping the areas in and around our storage units as dry as possible
- Routinely checking our storage units for pests
