Tiny Bugs and Big Problems
Tiny insects can create huge problems when a house is on the market. Whether the bugs are fleas, ants or roaches, their presence can turn away prospective buyers. And so can the odor of insects.
If you have an insect problem, handle it before you place your home on the market. Consider calling in a professional to advise you on the most effective and least toxic way to exterminate your home. Be very careful if you have
an expectant mother, children, or pets in your household. Air
the house thoroughly to eliminate any lingering bug spray odors. Consider replacing moth balls with cedar chips and using boric acid or some other odorless ant and roach killers. If this sounds like a lot of trouble, remember that even if they love your house, a single cockroach can frighten off prospective buyers.
