Apartment complex pest issues

This is very important, and it is newsworthy.  It is happening in Las Cruces, NM, but is important enough to be viewed worldwide as this can happen anywhere in the world. There is a major class action lawsuit against an apartment complex in progress in Las Cruces. Many people that lived in Desert Palms Apartments lived in units that were infested with cockroaches, bed bugs, rodents and other pests and in many cases had a lot of mold and nothing was done.  At least 60 people are presently plaintiffs in this lawsuit.  They were exposed to serious health issues because the pests in the apartments are all potential vectors of human diseases and some of the people got sick.  The apartment management rarely did anything.  Occasionally they would have a maintenance man spray an apartment, but it was apparent he had no idea what he was doing.  I would recommend that national media cover this story so other apartment complexes and tenants in other complexes around the country can be made aware of the hazards of the pests and the possible legal issues involved.  This should never happen in any apartment complex and at this complex, most people were low income, elderly, etc.  People should not be exposed to these hazards. The law firm working on this is Saenz Law Firm in Las Cruces.  I am working with the law firm on this issue.


About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs.
