Commercial and urban centers usually have a high influx of people in the workplace and apartments. Due to the availability of numerous potential food sources, theses areas provide safe harborage and breeding grounds for pests like cockroaches, rats, bed bugs, clothes moths, and mice to fester. For apartment buildings, the shared utilities and adjoining walls provide room for free and easy mobility when acquiring resources. Pest control becomes a tricky endeavor, especially when there’s a high turnover rate of residents, renters, and workers moving in and out throughout the day from many different environments; bringing with them many different pests to the establishment.

Roach Control

Roaches are the most common form of pests that invade offices, apartments, kitchens and pretty much any establishment with food sources. Considering the diseases they can spread, it’s astonishing how cockroaches are the least talked about pests. Some of the conditions and diseases they transmit may include salmonellosis, typhoid fever, plague, cholera, and dysentery. If you’re a restaurant owner and your place is infested with cockroaches, then chances are your business is losing customers and could ultimately get shut down.

Roaches are fast breeders with one egg sac capable of producing 16 to 32 new roaches, which is unfortunate for most of us. Roaches are resistant to a variety of pesticides as a result of improper DIY treatment methods producing super-roaches. Call a professional pest control technician to conduct an inspection and eliminate the roaches. Remember, cleanliness is next to Roachlessness.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are most prevalent in apartments that have a high turnover rate or high traffic units. These hitchhikers can easily enter your premise in several ways. Bed bug eggs can stick behind pictures, bed frames, suitcases, curtains, boxes, folded clothes or furniture and easily transported during travel. These creatures are exceptionally resilient and can be challenging to eliminate since they can enter a semi-dormant state that allows them to survive until suitable conditions arise to feed. Bed bugs have the award for hide-and-seek considering how they can find amazing spots to hide. Bed bugs complaints are bad for business; which is why you should call a commercial pest control professional to conduct a bed bug inspection and treatment.

Finding pests in the apartment space or work area can really be distressing, especially if one is particularly squeamish. For the workplace, a pest infestation may come off as unprofessional and shed your business in a negative light since an infestation is usually associated with unhygienic surroundings. So if you’re a business owner or apartment manager, consider getting commercial pest control services for a quick solution.
