1 In 3 Homes In Montreal Have Vermin Problems

According to the Direction de la Sante Publique, nearly one third of all dwellings in Montreal (28%) have vermin and humidity problems. The problem is especially common in the boroughs of Montreal-North, Saint-Leonard and Villeray.

The problems are caused by water infiltration which creates humidity buildup. This can lead to breathing problems, allergies and asthma.

It also causes vermin infestations, in fact nearly 10% of the homes in the downtown area have bedbug problems (Especially in Ville-Marie, the Plateau, Villeray and Ahuntsic-Cartierville), 5% have cockroaches and 10% have rat problems.
