Brooklyn, NY, suffers from pest problems brought on by an incredibly dense population. With over 36,000 people per square mile, the borough’s population of more than 2.5 million shares their homes with a variety of pests such as bed bugs, cockroaches, rats, and pigeons. The humid summers and cool, wet winters are subject to the urban heat island phenomenon, which creates an increased base temperature within the city due to the massive amounts of human activity and promotes an environment in which insect pests thrive year round. Bed bugs are classified as hazardous housing violations by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and landlords are legally obligated to eradicate infestations within 30 days in order to provide tenants with bed bug-free living spaces.
As Brooklyn is home to many historic neighborhoods made up of conjoined row houses, infestations of rats and cockroaches become difficult to eradicate and may affect multiple domiciles or even entire blocks. Both insect and rodent pests contaminate food and spread harmful diseases. Local pigeon populations are often at unsustainably high levels due to readily available food sources, such as garbage and bird feeders. Pigeon droppings create unsightly blemishes on buildings and public spaces, and the birds often transmit diseases and parasites. Contact Western Pest for rodent and pest control services near you.
