BUGS!!!

Insects are cold blooded. This means the hotter it is outside, the more energy they have to search for food which generally leads them into our homes!

Ants seem to be the most common occurrence we have experienced during this time of year. Although little, they sure are annoying! So how do you get rid of ants? Ultimately, ants are your responsibility as a resident per section 18 of the Lease/Rental Agreement. Before getting involved with costly exterminators or dangerous chemicals, there are much safer and more affordable methods to try first.

Vinegar. The way in which ants communicate with one another is through sounds, touch, and scent trails. If you set a little homemade Vinegar trap, one ant initially will find it then in turn send out a signal to the other ants that it has found a food source. Ideally, with this signal of the new “food source”, you will be successful in trapping the majority of ants and be rid of them!

Draw the line. Literally draw the line with chalk! Chalk and ants does not mix. When ants become in contact with chalk, it sticks to their bodies and does not come off. So not only will ants be unable to physically cross the chalk line, eventually it will kill them.

Divert them. Many people solely focus on the idea of killing ants. Have you ever thought about maybe just diverting them to a different location? Ants love sweet things, such as honey. Sometimes the answer to getting rid of ants can be as simple as putting a bucket, jar, or glass of honey in a location AWAY from your house. This wont harm the ants in anyway, it will just draw their attention elsewhere.

There are many other natural and harmless ways to get rid of these pesky ants. To check out more ideas and suggestions, check out Home Remedies!

Stay cool out there, and good luck with all those ants!!

Happy Friday!

The weekend is finally here!! Congratulations, you have made it through another week! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Stay safe and enjoy the sun.

Best Wishes

Last week was very bitter sweet for us here at Graf. Jasmin, one of our Accounting Assistants, decided her time at Graf has come to an end. While closing one door, another one opens. Jasmin has been blessed with the opportunity to go back to school full time for Nursing! We are extremely sad to see her leave, but know she will be great.

Congratulations Jasmin, we wish you nothing but the best!

Tips for Moving IN

Moving is such hard work, both physically and mentally. Often times we forget the little things involved with moving. Luckily for you, we did some brainstorming and came up with a list of helpful tips to make moving into a new home that much easier!

Break down the cardboard boxes. This will make it easier to either store them or recycle them.

  • Change your address. Yes, this seems like common sense, but it is often overlooked or forgotten about!

Change utilities over into your name.

Do a walk through of the unit to ensure any and all pre-existing damages are on file.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself of emergency locations such as the hospital, police station, etc.

Keep our office phone number and emergency maintenance phone number handy.

Keep extra light bulbs & batteries around; it is your responsibility as a tenant to change lights, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, etc. as they go out.

Do not leave garbage bags or furniture by entry ways or exits, even if temporary.

There will most likely be a few more things to remember during the moving process, but this should be enough to get you started! Good luck, have fun, and enjoy the process!!

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our office at (509)697-4874.
