Nothing disrupts the comfort of home like a pest infestation. Multifamily properties often experience pest problems due to continuous tenant turnover. Apartment and condo buildings also often have multiple entry points where pests can easily gain entrance.
Beyond the disruption they can create, pests also pose a serious health and safety threat with the potential to contaminate food, transmit pathogenic germs, trigger allergies and asthma, and cause extensive damage to structures, equipment, and property. Complicating issues for property managers, pest infestations can spread quickly in multifamily dwellings.
Below are just a few of the negative impacts pests can have on your properties:

Rodents are not the kind of tenants you want. Keep them out with our rodent prevention checklist.
Rentokil’s pest Specialists have years of experience working with multifamily properties to remove pest infestations. They are familiar with the behavior patterns of a wide variety of rodent and insect species and know exactly what treatments to implement after inspection. Some of the most frequent pest concerns in apartments and condos are:
Bed Bugs - Capable of crippling your property’s reputation, bed bugs are on the rise throughout the United States. Rentokil’s PROTECT+ System provides an integrated approach to controlling these pests in your building, allowing us to respond to your bed bug issues in hours, rather than days. Our unique program offers multiple levels of protection and utilizes a combination of environmentally friendly products to provide ongoing protection that keeps working long after treatment.
Fleas - Like bed bugs, fleas are a common problem in apartment/condo buildings and can quickly spread throughout a building if left untreated. Multifamily units that allow pets like dogs and cats are more susceptible to flea infestations. Rentokil has highly-effective treatment options for fleas, including chemical-free solutions.
Rodents - An infestation of mice or rats can cause panic among residents and requires swift and decisive action. Rentokil’s full suite of rodent solutions is designed to eliminate mice in a quick and safe manner. Our Multi Rodent Trap Connect is an innovative, wireless electronic monitoring system that provides 24/7 remote monitoring and protection for your apartment or condo.
Pigeons - A very problematic pest for multifamily housing managers, pigeons can cause property damage, expose building inhabitants to disease and scare away potential tenants. Rentokil bird control experts will work with you to get rid of your pigeon problem or issues with other pest birds such as seagulls and European starlings.
With Rentokil as your partner in pest control, you can stay one step ahead of pest problems.
