Keeping Your Residents Happy & Protected From Snohomish Pests

The only thing worse than a pest infestation in a home is a pest infestation in a multi-unit housing complex. Pest infestations in multi-unit housing bring all the same problems that they create in residential homes, but with the added potential of upsetting your residents. Worse, because units within these properties are often positioned closely together, a pest infestation in one unit can quickly spread to adjacent units. But no matter who the pest affects first, your residents will all be looking to you to take care of the problem.

Tips You Can Use to Prevent Pests Around Your Apartment

Preventing pests in a multi-unit housing situation is a group effort, with everyone present required to pitch in for long-term success. Once one unit gets a pest infestation, it’s very easy for it to spread to surrounding units and even across the property, so it’s important to stress that every resident needs to do their part to minimize the risk for infestations. 

If you’re worried about pests in your multi-unit housing or apartment complex, here are some great tips you and your tenants can use to help lower your risk for infestations:

  • Have tenants dispose of garbage regularly in sealed receptacles

  • Encourage tenants to wipe down kitchen countertops and sweep floors to remove crumbs and residue from spills.

  • Vacuum public areas at least once a week and encourage tenants to do the same inside their own units

  • Take special care with pets, and keep pet bowls clean and wipe up any spilled food or water around them promptly

  • Have tenants store pantry food items and dry pet food in sealed plastic containers

  • Routinely check under sinks for areas of moisture and repair any leaky pipes and encourage tenants to do the same

Unfortunately, even if most of your tenants follow your instructions to the letter, infestations are sometimes inevitable in multi-unit housing complexes. Even with the right guidance in place and everyone pitching in, the presence of so many humans living in the same space, combined with the various sources of food, water, and shelter the units provide, can create a situation that’s too good to pass up for many pests.

However, there is a solution: contact the pros at Guard Pest Control for help. You can trust the professionals at Guard to eliminate any existing pest issues you might be facing on your property while simultaneously helping you and your tenants prevent pest problems in the future.
