Why Apartment Building Pest Control is a Must
Protect your residents from unwanted infestations
Every apartment building is vulnerable to a pest infestation. Once rodents, insects, and other unwanted intruders make their way in, it’s difficult to get them out because apartment buildings are an infinite source of the food, water, and shelter they need to survive. Unfortunately, a pest-filled apartment building means unhappy tenants, which means your reputation — and bottom line — can take a hit. Find out more about the importance of investing in apartment building pest control by reading on.
Integrated Pest Control (IPM)
Integrated pest management (IPM for short) is a method used by most exterminators. IPM refers to the practice of using a combination of pest-control methods. Recommended for being environmentally friendly, IPM puts less emphasis on chemical pesticides, which means it’s safer to use in places where people and pets are at a high risk for exposure. Another bonus of IPM is that it’s more economically effective than other methods. First, the exterminator identifies the pest and the source of the infestation. Then, take preventative measures to make the apartment inhospitable to pests. Next, implement control options. Depending on the severity of the infestation, targeted chemical controls are applied, but this is generally avoided if possible.
Prevention is a vital step in IPM. Eliminating food and water sources is just the beginning. It’s also important to find potential points of entry the pests might be using. Repair ripped screens, cracked doorways, exterior holes, and crevices. Have a plumber fix leaky pipes and clogged drains.
The people living in your apartment building are in close quarters. Therefore, it’s a necessity to get everyone on board with your plan of attack. Otherwise, pests just travel from one unit to another, meaning your headache won’t end anytime soon. Gather your tenants and educate them about the importance of cleanliness in preventing infestations.
