Not usually.  Pests aren't normally covered by insurance.  Lay traps, put out poison, and most importantly, inspect the walls and foundation to find out where they are getting in and seal all gaps.

Same here.... haven't heard ever since that mouses are covered by insurance. A mouse hunting operation would be challenging. :-)

I don't think insurance company covers it. But as much as possible, you would want to employ a reliable pest control services to take care of the problem before the infestation gets worse.

I think the mice need to take out their own renters policy.

In our state, the landlord is responsable to make sure the unit is pest free upon move in.  After that it is the tenants responsability.

 

Check your state LL/Tenant laws.

Agreed Mary.  That is the law in most states.

@ Brown Perhaps you should speak to your landlord about what what happened and present him the cost of having a pest control company to take care of the pests inside. Afterall, it is his obligation.

If it turns out to be Bedbugs there are all kinds of problems.  Bedbugs can be in a rental unit for a good long time and not be seen until someone moves in and they detect two things.  Blood and CO2.  They come out at night and it would be hard to say the tenant brought them with them or they were there before the tenant.  Our company is starting to do a Forensic Bedbug DNA test that wil tell us a lot more but we still need more input from people who get Bedbugs.

Bebugs are not a do it yourself job.  Call a PMP (Pest Management Professional) in your area.  To find a good one contact several Realtors and ask them who they use for WDI reports.  The name that comes up most is the one I would start with.
