Multi-Family Pest Management
Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR | Beaverton OR
Multi-family pest control presents unique challenges not encountered by those who live in single-family dwellings. No matter how meticulously clean some families are, it only takes one family getting bugs for multiple families to get bugs. They can travel through ventilation systems and the tiniest cracks in the floors or walls until they have pervaded the building.
Why Be Concerned About Pests In Your Condominium Or Townhome?
Besides the fact that insects and other pests can be unsightly and carry germs, they can also cause structural damage to a building within a relatively short period of time. Carpenter ants and termites can work tirelessly behind the scenes resulting in thousands of dollars in damages.
Some of the most common damage-causing pests include:
- Carpenter ants
- Furniture beetles
While some invaders such as termites notoriously cause damage to buildings, other pests such as cockroaches and rodents add to the problem by carrying diseases throughout the building or buildings.

Getting Rid of Pests In Your Multi-Family Community
While there are some self-help techniques that can certainly help to prevent a pest invasion or lessen the effects thereof, they often only provide short-term relief. Over-the-counter chemicals are available but must be administered with great care, giving consideration to ventilation and safety for the building’s occupants.
The most effective multi-family pest control is usually achieved by calling a professional exterminator. These specialists are trained in more than just killing bugs. They know how to find points of entry, locate nests and eradicate them completely. Also, if contacted at the first sign of an infestation, a professional can usually get rid of the invaders before they have a chance to cause damage to the building or its inhabitants.
A licensed exterminator is trained in the safe use of chemicals that are not available for retail purchase by consumers. This means that the insecticides and pesticides used are more powerful for better results, but because they are administered by professionals, they are safe for the occupants of the building.
Professional exterminators are also available on a contractual basis for retreatment on a regular basis to make sure that the pests do not come back. This can make multi-family pest control safer, easier, and more cost-effective than using self-help techniques that may or may not work.
