Pest management is a tricky environmental challenge for apartment complex managers and staff. It can be a struggle to keep unwanted invaders out while ensuring residents aren’t exposed to potentially toxic chemicals and pesticides. Multi-family housing faces a particular struggle when it comes to preventing and eliminating bed bugs, mice, rats, termites, and cockroaches. Fortunately, an experienced Atlanta pest control company can help management and staff protect the apartment complex and residents from unwanted pests. Here are just a few reasons why apartment complexes benefit from managed pest control.
Termites can cause serious damage to apartment complexes and can spread from unit to unit faster than you think. The presence of termites, as well as the physical damage they cause, can have a negative impact on the property and your tenant’s quality of life. Managed pest control will install a termite monitoring and baiting system, a liquid barrier to keep termites out, and will treat wall voids and other structures with a dry foam and gel.
Bed Bug Treatments
Despite their name, bed bugs affect way more than just beds. They can be found in all types of furniture, as well as carpets, cupboards, and crevices in the walls. A bed bug infestation must be treated quickly to stop the spread of eggs, nymphs, and adult bed bugs. Fortunately, heat treatment is an effective solution that takes just a day and leaves no residual impact.
Rodent & Wildlife Management
Rodents, birds, and other wildlife can plague apartment complexes for a number of reasons, including the presence of outdoor trash dumpsters. If left unchecked, they can destroy property and expose both residents and staff to a host of dangerous diseases. Managed pest control services will identify and seal off common entry points and eliminate any infestations through trapping and removal techniques.
Comprehensive Pest Control
Ants, cockroaches, and a host of flies are common pests found in apartments and other managed multi-family properties. Cleanliness is the first line of defense in keeping cockroaches and other pests at bay, which involves the cooperation of both the apartment staff and the residents themselves. While there’s only so much you can do to when it comes to tenants’ levels of cleanliness, there are steps you can take to make the property less inviting to pests.
Managed pest control services use discrete monitors to keep track of pest activity. When pests are detected, baits, traps, and residual insecticides can be applied to eliminate the issue before it turns into a full-blown infestation.
