Why Houston Property Managers Should Be Concerned With Pest Control!

Did you know that Pest Control is important for property managers and their tenants? If you live in Conroe, Spring, The Woodlands, or the Houston Area, you need good Pest Control! Each unit of a multi-unit building must have an active program to control pests. Pests such as roaches, ants, earwigs, silverfish, spiders, and bed bugs can be found in many buildings where they feed on food scraps or glue from sticky tape.

The more units there are in a building, the greater the risk of having severe pest problems. An effective treatment program is essential to control pests and protect the health and safety of tenants. Pest treatment for a building should be scheduled regularly since pests reproduce quickly and can cause a building to be over-run in just a few months.

The most common type of treatment available is “Residual Spraying” or “Residual Dusting”. These treatments are not designed to kill pests that are present at the time of treatment. They provide a protective barrier that remains active for several months. This residual barrier will kill pests that walk over the treated surfaces, protecting against future pest infestations.

Residual treatments are suitable for most residential, commercial, and industrial locations. They are also ideal for cupboards, food handling areas, garbage rooms, etc.

What Is Included In Pest Control for Multi-Unit Properties?

Every month a pest control service should be performed in each unit. This includes the exterior of the building and walkways, windows, doors, screens, baseboards, storage areas, the garage, and any other common areas in the building.

Pest control services can vary depending on where you live, but you should expect common pests like ants, cockroaches, and earwigs at the very least. There are many options available to provide maximum protection throughout the year.

Prevention is key, especially in multi-unit buildings where certain pests may have easy access to units in a building.

It is also important to remind your tenants about proper food storage and sealing any holes in walls, floors, or ceilings. The goal of pest control is to reduce the pests in a building and keep them from returning.

Property managers should also make sure they are clear about whether or not the pest control company offers additional services such as bed bug treatment or wood destroying insect inspection and treatment. If you do not already have a pest control team contact CPL Pest Control!

Why Should Property Managers Be Concerned With Pest Control?

Pests like rodents (mice and rats), birds, and bats have access to buildings through openings larger than a quarter of an inch. These types of pests can do serious damage by gnawing electrical wires, chewing through the wood siding and floor joists, nesting inside walls,and spreading disease through droppings. Chewed wires can lead to potential fire hazards in the future!

So what insects should Property Managers expect this season?

Rats and mice are expected to be very active this spring. This is because of the mild winter we had, there was lots of food available for them over the winter months.

Ants will also be quite busy looking for food sources indoors. If ants get into a home they can potentially damage insulation by chewing through it for moisture and nesting.

The silverfish insect is also expected to make a comeback this spring. They are very difficult to control and will feed on fabrics, wallpaper, paper, sugar, and flour.

Last but not least is the cockroach, which is one of the most common pests found in homes. Cockroaches can be brought into the home through food boxes and grocery bags. They can find their way into a home through any crack or crevice larger than 1/2 inch and if the exterior of the building is not maintained they will run right up the side of a building.
