Preventing Pests in Your Apartment

Apartments are one of the most affordable options when it comes to living. They typically have easy access to things like restaurants and grocery stores as well. With most apartment buildings, there are various aspects you are sharing with others. From noises through the wall to the smell of your neighbor’s dinner! You may even share some unwelcome pests.

The closeness of apartment units can make it hard to locate the source of a pest infestation. Because apartments share connected utilities, pests are given an easy path to travel to and from each unit. Pests, like cockroaches and bedbugs, are among the most popular that apartment units will see. Here are a few ways residents can avoid and prevent an infestation in the future.

  • Moving can be expensive so it may seem like a good idea to pick up furniture from a yard sale to save some money. Be sure to inspect any secondhand furniture you purchase as they could be harboring beetles, bed bugs and more.
  • If you’re a big online shopper, your packages offer pests a one-way ticket into your home. These packages usually have a long journey, which provides plenty of options for pests to hop on.
  • For those that like to travel, you can unknowingly bring back pests from your latest vacation. More often than not, bed bugs can be found in hotel beds, different type of transportation and other areas you may not expect. When you return home after your vacation, inspect and vacuum out any suitcases or bags that were brought with you.

Pest Prevention

  • Remove garbage on a daily basis
  • Cleanup any crumbs or spills
  • Vacuum weekly
  • Keep all food in sealed containers
  • Check in areas of moisture or leaky pipes for pests
