These easy to follow tips were provided by "The Bug Master", a pest control company in Austin Texas where I live and provide real estate services.

  • Cover the drains. After a week or so the drains become dry and raoches will start to crawl in.

  • Properly seal doors and window sills.

  • Check that weather stripping is in good condition around the property because bugs will find its way to your vacant property through dry / missing weather stripping.

  • Place painter's tape around the dryer vent to keep roaches and other pests out.

A vacant property, either because you moved out and have not sold/rented it yet or because you are out of town from a couple of weeks, seems to be a paradise for pests to come in, propagate and stay. Follow the tips provided by The Bug Master or contact your preferred pest control company to have then do a preventive treatment before its too late and more costly to treat an infestation.
