Pest Control for Housing

Housing Service IPM Specialist

Condominiums, apartment complexes, and other multi-family environments can pose a number of challenges when it comes to pest control. These managed properties are often subject to bed bugs, cockroaches, flies, wasps, and rodents. Some of these pests pose health threats to tenants, while others also cause safety and structural concerns. For example, rodents are known to chew through critical electrical wiring, which can lead to electric fires.

An infestation in a multi-family building is often difficult to pinpoint and control because the units share floors and walls, which makes it easier for a problem to spread. There are also communal areas that must be accounted for and maintained, such as hallways, entertainment rooms, and fitness centers.

IPM Specialist will work with property managers to be proactive before a problem arises. When a problem arises, they can damage the property’s reputation. Property managers should also make a concerted effort to educate unit owners or renters about pest prevention in their individual spaces. With IPM, we help educate property managers and tenants about pest prevention. If you are in need of a pest program, contact us today.


“We had hundreds of pigeons living underneath our solar panels throughout our property, not only were they an eye sore but they were causing tremendous amount of damages to our property. Our vendor who cleans our solar panels refused to clean them due to health and safety issues regarding the bird fecal matter. IPM was on site within 24 hours correcting the issues. The staff was very knowledgeable and professional. Our panels were cleaned within 2 days, including the roof top and gutters. They then proceeded to seal off all the solar panels, to prevent birds from going underneath them. It’s been 4 months since the work was performed, and we haven’t had any issues! The cost we saved in janitorial services from getting the job done right has been tremendous. Thank you, please thank all of the staff!”
