Apartment Manager's Pest Control GuideApartments are just as susceptible to pest infestations as single-family dwellings.

Fortunately, the professional pest control management team at EcoTech is experienced with handling large-scale commercial properties and apartment dwellings. We have many years experience and will keep your tenant buildings bug and pest free!

Why Insects And Pests Migrate To Interior Spaces

There are a variety of reasons why you might find pests or insects in interior spaces in apartment buildings, but most have to do with:

Seeking refuge from extreme temperatures: pests are, like humans, always trying to find shelter away from the extreme temperatures. When it’s cold outside, they seek warmth, and vice versa. In order to survive these extremes, pests have been known to enter in some tight spots.
Abundance of shelter: pests are oftentimes drawn to clutter piles, as it gives them endless spaces to hide and seek shelter. Storage closets, porches, even trashcans and simple cardboard boxes stacked up can create sheltered spaces for pests to reside.
Seeking food sources: Again, like humans, insects are constantly seeking out food sources. Leftovers, crumbs, and the like are instant sources and eliminate the need for the pests to seek out food sources in their natural habitat.
Access to water sources: Every living creature needs water to survive. When it is dry outside, pests and insects seek water from interior sources (standing water in sinks, baths, dishes, and even toilets).

Apartment Manager’s Guide To Keeping Pests Out

Per the IPM (Integrated Pest Management) standards, the best practice for keeping pests from entering the buildings is to build a defense line outside. This means working with groundskeeping crews to maintain lawns and bushes in a manner such that pests cannot thrive and have easy access to interior buildings. Cracks and other potential access points around doors and windows should be properly sealed to prevent insect access. Additionally, trash dumpsters should be kept emptied on a regular basis.

Keeping an apartment treated for pests not only benefits the renters, but also satisfies a good number of MN rental property regulatory requirements. Keeping the space treated and pest-free means that you are more likely to keep your renters happy and maintain a level of retention among residents. To ensure that your apartment building(s) is following MN regulations and is ready to keep only human residents on the inside, call the experts at EcoTech at (763) 232-7296 today. 24/7 emergency, after-hours response available.
