If you have a self-storage unit, it's important to be aware of the potential for pests. Mice, rats, and other rodents can easily get into storage units through small openings and cracks. Once inside, they can wreak havoc by chewing on wires, insulation, and stored belongings. Insects such as cockroaches, ants, and termites can also infest self-storage units. These pests can damage stored belongings and spread disease.
First, make sure that all openings in the unit are sealed tight. Mice and rats can squeeze through very small openings, so it's important to check for cracks and gaps around doors and windows. You should also regularly inspect the unit for signs of pests, such as droppings or chewing damage. If you do find evidence of pests, it's important to take action immediately to prevent an infestation from taking hold.
There are a number of pest control products available for self-storage units. You can purchase traps and bait to control rodents and insects. You can also contact a professional pest control company to treat your unit. Whatever method you choose, it's important to act quickly to prevent pests from damaging your belongings or spreading disease.
