Pests are not always our fault. Often, they crawl from neighboring apartments or sewers invading our home or business.
If you live in a multi-story building, the neighborhood community can provide pest control and fumigation services. After all, it is in the interest of all landlords and tenants to keep their homes pest-free.
If, on the other hand, you live in an independent house and believe that your neighbor is the source of these creatures, what should you do?
Reach out to your neighbor and mention that they have noticed an insect or rat infestation in the past few weeks and emphasize with them as they have a common goal to get rid of the pests!
Immediately call a Madrid pest control company to assess the situation. In the meantime, make sure you don’t have open containers of food, trash, or pet food to attract them. You don’t want to accuse a neighbor of having rats or roaches if you are the real source!
