Your property will have scorpions. They don't hide in the backyard. You can tour the front of the property at night with a black-light flashlight without getting access inside or to the yard.
I have termites, a large problem where I live. After tenting the property for $1040, I pay $100 a year to have inspections, spraying, and all repairs from termite damage is included.
You can get an on-going pest control contract where you have initial eradication and then if you see one outside (or inside) you pick up the phone.
My aging mother had a device you can pick up from the hardware store called a reacher - trigger handle with long shaft and tongs to pick up things she dropped on the floor. My brother, who lived in Mesa (Red Mountain area) had scorpion problem, borrowed Mom's reacher (and kept it) for the expressed purpose of grabbing scorpions (he didn't have a pest-control contract).
The larger question for me would be what kind of scorpions. The large ones (Haddurus Arizonensis) aren't poisonous; the medium sized ones with 4 black stripes running the length of the underbelly of the tail (Vejovis Spinigerous) are mildly poisonous; and the small ones with what looks like a tiny stinger under the actual stinger (Centuroides Scupturatus) can kill you (I may have spelled those slightly wrong, BTW).... more
WHAT BUS ROUTE IS AT ENTRANCE TO COMMUNITY?This question was asked from http://www.trulia.com/rental-community/9000018914/Verona-Park-1666-S-Extension-Rd-Mesa-AZ-85210/?ecampaign=con_day_rentalpropertycomp_bk&eurl=www.trulia.com
The system used by Trulia is outlined online on their webpage. Trulia uses their own proprietary figure that they attached to a home. The amount is based on a formula and that amount can vary from home to home. The Trulia value is not the appraised value, fair market value, or amount that your home would sell for if the house was put on the market for sale. Each home can vary slightly based on the features of the home and other factors. If you are planning to list your home for sale, you should use a Realtor that understands how Trulia works and how to most effectively market your home. This would be a good question to discuss with qualified Real Estate Broker.... more
The property manager doesn't pocket the money--it has to be remitted to the City. You might want to check your lease to see if you were obligated to pay sales tax and you might want to check with the City of Mesa and see if the location off the home makes a difference.... more
