Pest Control for Multifamily Properties

More than just a nuisance, pests cause a range of issues in multifamily buildings. The presence of insects and rodents may be uncomfortable or even dangerous for residents in apartment complexes and townhomes. Many pests are vectors for disease, spread pathogens by contaminating stored goods, and some can even trigger asthma and allergies.

Improper use of store-bought pesticides by residents trying to remove pests from their apartment or duplex can also be a costly proposition. DIY methods and over-the-counter treatments will only push pests away from the room or apartment where they are used. It could cause them to move to another apartment or force them to find better hiding spots – making them more difficult to find. In addition, pest control products should only be used by those licensed and certified to use them. Western uses integrated pest management strategies to reduce the risk of tenants taking rodent and insect control into their own hands.

Common Pest Problems in Multifamily Buildings

Apartment buildings, condos, and duplexes have unique weaknesses regarding household pests. For example, adjoining walls and utility pipes or wiring make it easy for pests like

In addition to damaging an apartment building’s reputation, bed bug infestations can also result in legal issues for property managers. Several states in the Mid-Atlantic region have legal codes concerning bed bugs in multifamily homes and hotels. Without efficient commercial pest control, property owners could be subject to litigation as well as negative reviews from tenants.

Entry Points & Prevention

As with any public business or commercial property, pests can enter apartment buildings in various ways. Excess moisture, plumbing leaks, messy dumpsters or recycling bins, and cluttered common areas attract insects and rodents. Guest or tenant luggage and belongings can bring them indoors, and mice and rats in neighboring buildings can cross over to your property, too.

Since multifamily homes are vulnerable to infestations, educating staff and residents about cleanliness expectations and signs of insect and rodent activity should be part of the pest control solutions for your business. Proactive employees, informed tenants, and Western integrated pest management strategies will help prevent insects and rodents from invading your multifamily property.
