Birds may head south for the winter but cockroaches, mice and other pests prefer to stay close to home. When it comes to NJ commercial pest control, there’s no offseason for apartment property owners. How do you keep these unwanted insects and animals out in the cold?

Apartment Buildings = Easy Living

Apartment buildings are even more attractive to pests than single-family homes. When food, water and other resources are exhausted in one unit, they can find shelter and fresh supplies in the next one.

The German cockroach is one of the more common pests found in apartment buildings. While these insects are annoying, the greater danger is the health risk presented by E. coli, Salmonella and other diseases transmitted by cockroaches.

Winter Pest Prevention

Successful pest prevention plans in apartment buildings require the cooperation of management, staff and residents.

– Create an ongoing education program to inform staff and residents about the dangers of pests and tips such as maintaining a clean apartment.

– Warn residents about the use of over-the-counter pesticides, which are often ineffective and may present a greater risk to humans than insects.

– Schedule regular inspections to watch for signs of infestations.
