The key to having a pest-free apartment complex is regular pest inspections and a pest management program performed by a licensed and experienced pest specialist.
Pest problems are a common problem for apartment buildings all year long. But as spring approaches, the change in temperature and environmental conditions introduces new pests onto your property. Insects find their way into your complex, eat food, fabric, and drywall, and spread filth and disease.
If you or one of your tenants see one or two bugs, don’t dismiss it. While one or two bug sightings might not seem like a cause for concern, they could indicate a more extensive infestation.

Common Bug Issues to Watch Out For This Spring
Many different bugs are attracted to apartment buildings. Some bugs are harmless, but others can cause extensive damage and even attract more significant, troublesome pests, like rodents. Some of the common bugs to keep an eye on this spring include:
- Bed Bugs
Ants can become a significant problem. They build large colonies and thrive wherever there is food and water. Renters often say that ants are the number one pest-related concern in their homes. The other issue is that dozens of ant species can make their way into your building, including carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, pavement ants, odorous ants, sugar ants, and field ants. Each type may require a different technique for exterminating or controlling them.
Roaches are one of the most unsettling bugs to see scurrying across a kitchen floor. Like ants, many types of cockroaches make their way into a home, like German roaches, American roaches, Oriental roaches, and Wood roaches. Cockroaches are highly destructive insects, and they can also carry diseases. Some people are allergic to them, which can cause serious health issues for tenants.
Bed bugs are incredibly prolific and will breed fast if not exterminated quickly. In ideal conditions, a bed bug will live for up to a year, and if a female bed bug is not killed during the pest control actions, it can breed fast and restart the infestation. Several treatments may be required, and our bed bug exterminators will do everything they can to get rid of them and prevent their return.
Flies easily enter a home through open windows, doors, and cracks. They can be challenging to control once they become an infestation. Flies are annoying, but they can also carry pathogens that cause disease and promote the spread of foodborne illnesses. Fly larvae can develop and thrive in trash receptacles, recycling containers, and floor drains. They can be a particular nuisance during hot summer months.
Beetles can infest and damage wooden objects and structures in your home. They often hide inside your home in your carpets, fabric furnishings, pantries, and other inconvenient areas. They can also destroy the plants and vegetation in your yard and garden.
As spring approaches, it’s essential to watch out for common bug issues in your apartment building. Ants, roaches, bed bugs, flies, and beetles are some of the pests that can cause extensive damage and health hazards for tenants. Regular pest inspections and a pest management program performed by a licensed and experienced pest specialist are crucial for preventing and controlling infestations. Don’t dismiss one or two bug sightings, as they could indicate a more significant problem. Stay proactive in keeping your apartment complex pest-free to ensure the health and well-being of your tenants.
