As a strata manager, maintaining a pest-free environment is essential for the health and well-being of the residents. Commercial pest control is vital, as unwanted invaders can carry illnesses, cause damage to property and harm the reputation of your organisation.

In this blog, we have compiled some important information for stata managers to bear in mind for effective pest control and to help you get rid of these unwanted guests.

The Importance of Regular Inspections

This is a case where prevention is better than cure. Regular inspections will detect pest infestations timeously, and you can nip the problem in the bud. You can carry out the checks yourself, or hiring the services of a specialist pest control company is a great idea.

Pay attention to entry points such as doors, windows, pipes, vents and cracks. Where applicable, access via these areas should be sealed off to discourage invaders. Overgrown vegetation and standing water should also be eliminated as they are potential breeding grounds for various pests.

In this way, you will also receive a comprehensive pest inspection report which is required for insurance and finance purposes. Early pest detection also limits the amount of damage they can cause before they are eradicated.

Informing Residents of Procedures to Prevent Infestations

Making the surroundings undesirable to pests is an excellent management technique. You can do this by asking residents to:

  • Seal all refuse bags tightly and dispose of them in the designated area.
  • Report any signs of an infestation immediately.
  • Keep their spaces clean and clear, eliminating clutter and “hidey-holes” for invaders.
  • Review supplied information on the identification of common pests and how to discourage them from invading their homes.
