Common Pest Problems in Apartment Buildings:
Large roofs provide areas of interest to birds, rodents, and pests drawn to sitting water on the roof such as flies and mosquitoes.
Managed properties are often surrounded by mulch. Mulch located next to any exterior wood on a building poses a greater threat for infestation of termites and cockroaches and is a common problem in any commercial building that regularly employs landscapers.
Bed Bugs are a notorious problem in apartment buildings. These pests love to move into beds and furniture. Once in an apartment building, these pests can travel rapidly from room to room.
In the Northeast, especially during the colder months as they seek warmth, rodents can become a serious problem very quickly. Mice can actually get in through spaces as small as a #2 pencil – and once they move in- breed very rapidly.
Ants can also become a problem for apartment buildings. Without preventative pest control measures, ants, especially in the summer, become almost inevitable.
Buildings with large numbers of drains are also prone to flies breeding in those drains.
