Common Invaders

Having a full understanding of the types of Houston pests that become a problem where people are living, eating and working can help to prepare your staff, and tenants, of measures they can take to protect apartment complexes and office buildings from a pest infestation.

Cockroaches 

Cockroaches can be a property manager’s, and a tenant’s, worst nightmare. They typically find their way in through small cracks in the building around doors/windows and through plumbing and pipes.

Preventing cockroaches can be a challenge. If your apartment or office building is already faced with the issue, then you need to hire a professional. Many DIY methods will only force cockroaches further into hiding. A pest professional can help draw them out of hiding to help remove them.

Ants

Ants in Houston come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Some of the most common ants found in apartment complexes and other managed properties are red imported fire ants, carpenter ants, pharaoh ants and crazy ants.

Because there are so many types of ants, and each is attracted to a variety of sources, eliminating them is extremely challenging to do on ones’ own. However, kitchens and bathrooms are the most common places they become a problem. While a dirty apartment or office isn’t necessarily the cause of an infestation, it certainly won’t mitigate it. Ensure that tenants and staff have an understanding of the necessary cleaning and sanitation of these areas.

Termites

As most Houston residents know, termites are no joke. Most termite issues start from the ground up, and many buildings can be quickly destroyed without much warning. A regular termite inspection is recommended not only for Houston homeowners, but alsoequally important for businesses and property managers. 

Your first termite inspection with Holder’s for an apartment complex or office buildings is of no charge. We will then follow-up with an assessment of the managed property and put together a thorough report with treatment options. Our technician will then implement the preferred method of control that works for you.

Rodents

When rats or mice are found in apartment or office buildings, you will surely be getting a phone call. A few key measures can be taken by you or your staff to ensure rodents don’t find their way indoors:

  • Moving dumpsters away from possible entrances (windows and doors).
  • Ensure that cracks and openings in the foundation of the building are properly sealed.
  • Making sure that apartment or office kitchens are cleaned, leftover food is thrown away or tightly sealed, and messes are cleaned up quickly.

Holder’s will ensure that your property is sufficiently lined with strategically placed bait stations where rodents have been spotted or left a trace, and will stop by for routine checkups to ensure they don’t become a problem again.

As a leading full-service pest solutions company, Holder’s offers a comprehensive list of pest control services to meet your company’s varied needs. Find out how we can assist your property management company today!
