Would take the fridge outside remove the food then clean with pressure washer then spray with bleach then infestation in the fridge is over. The food would thrown out as well. Behind the fridge a thorough cleaning along with chalking all the cracks in the baseboard then buy sticky traps to clear out any infestation. Three elements for survival are food, water along with place to live. Combat gel or Max force around the perimeter of the room. Chalking along insulation spray foam where pipes, wiring enter walls or floors takes a place to live. --99.236.xxx.xxx

1. You find out, when bears start wandering through the yard, on their way to your rental, you find the tenant has been putting food out in his backyard.(This actually happened!) Of course, he received a warning notice, to stop or the DNR would be called.

2. Picking up bear bait, just before dark, cause your tenant wouldn't do it and wondering if you could get the job done before the bears showed up.

3. You open the garage and you back up because of the smell.

4. Yup, you can't raise the garage door because the tenants use it to store their overflow.

5. You get a text saying your tenant is in jail.

6. You get a call from your tenant and listen to them come up with every excuse in the book why rent will be late, again.

7. You have your tenant ask you to babysit and when you refuse you are told you are a rude uncaring person.

Ya gotta love being a landlord.....

when you find three people outside washing strangers' cars in December in the driveway with the hose pouring out into the street.

when the gasoline smell from the garage hits you when you are parking at the curb.

When there are two unregistered cars in front of the house.

Two tenants ago the young tenants tried to start several businesses in the small 1950s garage. I asked them to leave under threat of eviction and they did.

One more... when there is a pile of cord wood on the lawn and there is no fireplace.

Crazy tenant had switched from gas to wood heat. Town inspectors made him put it back. --108.24.xx.xx

When a State Police officer comes by looking for the (thankfully ex) tenant with a warrant.

When you open the door and "EVERYTHING" moves - the ceiling, walls, and floor. (Worst Roaches I've ever seen - vacant MH, for sale. )

You still very clearly see the shape of the removed wall decor - due to all the smoking that stained the wall around it. --68.229.xxx.xxx

...you find children's toys on top of a light fixture in a 12' peak ceiling

...there are activated charcoal odor eliminator bags in every nook and cranny of a recently vacated, non-smoking, sfh.

...the closet door at the base of the stairs has many dents and multi-colored paint smudges from the metal cars and trucks that the kids would send down from the top of the stairs.

...you open the garage door during a maintenance visit to find two big dogs on leashes in a no pet dwelling.

...the furnace filter that was changed just 4 weeks before is again full of waxy soot - after you had instructed the tenant to stop burning (cheap) candles in the house per the rental agreement. ("Oh, I'm just burning them up because I won't be using them in the house that we're buying in 2 weeks.") --96.245.xx.xx
