Recession Causes NYC Cockroaches and Mice to Thrive

The New York Times recently published an article about NYC cockroaches and NYC mice thriving in a recession. No, they’re not running a Ponzi scheme, they are doing well because people are cutting costs due to the recession and pest control services for these particular critters have been eliminated or decreased by some residential and commercial customers. Apartment and office building owners are cutting back services. You probably won’t have a mouse doing the backstroke in your clam chowder in your favorite NYC restaurant due to restaurant owners being concerned about big fines.

One customer was quoted in the article saying “We’ll step on the bugs and kick the mice. The exterminating almost becomes a luxury item.” Stepping and shoving will probably work better than tickles and pinches.

Pest control experts suggest that cutting back on exterminating services will cost businesses and residence owners more money in the long run. Sure you can kick a mouse but after he stops being befuddled he will probably find a way to produce more mice and the problem gets bigger. He may produce more mice just to be spiteful. It’s obvious a stepped on NYC cockroach will be making babies a few hours later.

If you have cockroaches or mice call a NJ, NYC pest control expert to get rid of them.
