Pests and pest control

Sometimes you may get unexpected visitors in your apartment. Do keep in mind that some insects you may find indoors are completely harmless, and you do not need to contact pest control to get rid of them. However, occasionally the insects may be pests which require proper pest control treatments.

It is the tenant's responsibility to notify Hoas of any pests as soon as possible and follow instructions given by the pest control company. Hoas always uses a specialised professional company to carry out pest control. Careful treatment is the best way to get rid of the problem. It is important that you follow the instructions in order for the pest control treatment to be successful and to stop the pest from spreading.

If the tenant reports the problem as soon as it is detected, the treatment is free of charge to the tenant.

Sometimes, especially in the spring and summer, birds nesting close to the property may cause problems. During the nesting period, bird nests are protected, so in most cases there is nothing we can do about the problem. 

Hoas does not offer apartments where an outbreak of either bedbugs or cockroaches is suspected. Such apartments will be kept empty while they are being fumigated. However, tenants should still remember that they are responsible for reporting any pest issues to Hoas.
