As a community manager, you want to keep the elected members of the Homeowners Association and Community Association board and your whole community happy. The best way to do that is to keep them safe. It’s a lot of responsibility and you probably take it very seriously. HOA and Community Association members pay dues to keep up with the pool maintenance and make sure the playgrounds are safe for the youngest members, but what about pest control? They probably aren’t thinking about that. But, you are. The best way for you to take care of pest control is have a company you trust take care of it for you. That’s where we come in.
You may not realize all the spots in your community that can be plagued by pests. That’s OK. We do. Here are just a few:
Ponds and Water Features – You maintain these features for your community to enjoy. It’s hard to have fun at a BBQ when you’re swatting at midges, mosquitoes, flies, or gnats. Any of those buzzing annoying water insects can ruin the experience. What you need is a company that uses a product that is safe around people and pets but will still keep those pests in check. Not only do we do that, we also use a product that will not interfere or harm your landscaping or any birds or fish that may live in the ponds. Check that one off the list.
Clubhouse – The clubhouse should be rented out for celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations – not closed down for an infestation. As those parties happen, food and drinks are brought in and crumbs and spills happen. Rodents and ants love that! They also love shelter and water – both of which are available in that clubhouse. So, even if you clean, rodents and ants will still find a way in. You need a pest control company that will not only take care of the pests but will work with you to ensure they don’t come back.
Trails and Nature Paths – Fresh air and exercise are not only good for our bodies, but they’re good for our minds. See more benefits of fresh air here. In addition to keeping family members safe from the pests that can be on those trails, like ticks and mosquitoes, you want to keep furry family members safe, too. Ticks carry Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, so keeping them off your trails is important. Mosquitoes enjoy trails, too, and those pests are considered the most dangerous animals in the world because of the many serious diseases they carry including Malaria, EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis), and West Nile virus. So, put aside the fact that the bites aren’t pleasant. This is more about public health.
Your Member’s Homes – We all know the pests that can plague a home whether it be a townhouse, a condominium, or a house. Ants, rodents, flies – all pests will invade a home looking for the 3 basics: food, shelter, and water. Of course we can take care of those pests, but did you know we can also deal with a squirrel or bat in the attic, a wasp or hornet nest taking up occupancy on the porch, renegade geese that are leaving unwanted gifts on the driveway, and so much more? Not to mention seeing just one bed bug can cause panic in the community. We will not only take care of those elusive pests, but we can offer “How to Prevent Bed Bugs” education sessions to HOA and Community Association members during their meetings. Now that you have a pest control company you trust on hand, you can easily and confidently recommend them to help the homeowners in your community. What could be more convenient than that?
Having a company that can do it all can be a time and money saver for both you, your homeowner or community association board, and the HOA and Community Association members. And Western Pest Services can be that company for you. We can also offer you our Western PurClean™ disinfectant treatment to disinfect your common areas at a 99.99% efficacy rate. Just one more service we can provide – a one-stop pest and pathogen shop. That’s what you’ll get with Western Pest Services.
