Pest Control for Apartments


Making your investment more profitable


Apartment complexes are among the toughest structures for pest control. The close proximity of units often makes it difficult to pinpoint the cause of a pest infestation, and in some situations, may even amplify the infestation. Units share not only walls and floors, but also connected utilities, which create easy pathways for pests to travel. Plus, pests are sneaky and can enter through open windows or sliding glass doors, through ventilation slats for AC units, under doors lacking door sweeps and around windows without proper weather stripping. Potted plants, whether they be indoors or on an outdoor terrace can provide additional access for pests. Bed bugs, cockroaches, flies, wasps, rodents and fleas are just some of the pests that can invade an apartment complex.

A reputation for pest problems at an apartment complex can spread like wildfire to potential residents. That’s another concern you don’t need added to the challenges of maintaining an apartment building and keeping tenants happy.

If you’re currently struggling to solve your apartment pest management problem, or if you’ve been less than enthusiastic about the professional pest control services that you’ve dealt with in the in the past, stay calm. There are solutions and TruX Pest Control can help you keep your property pest-free, and your residents happy.

General Pest Proofing

Tenants can also participate in general pest proofing around their apartments by following these simple steps:

  • Dispose of garbage regularly in closed trash canisters
  • Wipe down kitchen counter tops and sweep floors on a regular basis
  • Vacuum once a week
  • Keep pet bowls clean and wipe up any spilled food or water around them promptly
  • Store pantry food items, and dry pet food in a sealed  container
  • Routinely check under sinks for areas of moisture and repair any leaky pipes

Pests thrive in apartment buildings because of easy access to food, water, shelter and adjoining walls, ventilation systems and shared utilities. If resources become scarce in one unit, pests such as mice, cockroaches and bed bugs easily move from one unit to the next. This presents a unique challenge to apartment building managers because it becomes increasingly crucial to manage the behaviors of residents. In order to find success with pest management in an apartment building, here are some best practices:

  • Seal Holes,  Cracks and other points of entry
  • Inspect Plumbing for leaks
  • Maintain Property Grounds
  • Remove Standing Water
  • Provide a comprehensive check-list

NOTE: The German cockroach is the most common and feared species of cockroach found in apartment buildings. They are known to spread a number of diseases, and risking your residents’ health and well-being. These diseases include E. coli, Salmonella spp. and typhus. German cockroaches also are known to cause allergic reactions in children or worsen asthma symptoms.

What should residents do to prevent cockroaches in their apartments?

  • Store all food in sealed plastic or glass containers
  • Wipe down all kitchen surfaces regularly
  • Remove trash frequently from unit
  • Throw away cardboard boxes and paper
  • Wash and store dishes immediately after use
  • Clean under utilities on a regular basis.
