Apartment Pest Control in Phoenix, Arizona
Pests in Your Apartment Building?
Apartment Management Pest Control
Regular maintenance of an apartment complex is crucial, including pest control. Our proficient pest technicians are equipped with advanced techniques and technologies for effective pest management in every area you may need for pest extermination. Our methods are safe and efficient.
Is The Landlord Responsible for Pest Control?
As a general rule, apartment pest control is the landlord’s responsibility, so long as it doesn’t result from a tenant’s actions or lack thereof. Pest control apartment laws in AZ mandate landlords to adhere to applicable building codes that significantly impact health and safety. Many kinds of pest infestations are considered health risks, including insects, vermin, and rodents.
How Often Should Pest Control Be Done in an Apartment?
Integrated pest management companies recommend regular treatment to avoid infestations. Pest control is more than just the type of treatment but also the frequency of treatment.
Routine apartment pest control inspections help ward off those not-as-obvious infestations that might be brewing.
How Do You Prepare An Apartment for an Exterminator?
Integrated pest management technicians work best in a neat and clean environment, giving them the space required for effectively treating and locating nests to eliminate pests.
How to Prepare Apartments for Pest Control
Consider taking the following steps before a pest treatment appointment:
- Clear sinks of dishes
- Clear kitchen countertops and tables
- Remove exposed food and standing water
- Wipe down surfaces
- Clean up toys or clutter around the apartment
- Vacuum floors
- Seal openings and crack in windows, doors, and walls
- Wash bedding
- Follow additional instructions given by the apartment exterminator
Taking the above steps before the technician arrives helps ensure you’ll get the most out of professional pest treatment. For apartments currently occupied by tenants, you can encourage these steps to be taken prior to their appointment.
Where Does Pest Control Spray in Apartments?
A pest technician will focus on the problem areas in an apartment, targeting nesting spots and entry points. The technician will also look for activity in walls, cabinets, and furniture.
It’s essential to avoid spreading an infestation. Moving furniture should be avoided in the case of bed bugs. Spraying entry points can be done to prevent future pest problems from occurring, which is another reason why regular pest control is essential.
What Do You Do If a Tenant Finds a Cockroach in Their Apartment?
Spotting one cockroach can indicate a more significant infestation issue. Due to being social insects, cockroaches typically live and move in groups. After either you or a tenant spot a cockroach in the apartment, we recommend you reach out to integrated pest management services as soon as you can.
Cockroaches put tenants’ health at risk in numerous ways, including leaving feces on surfaces and food, spreading disease, and triggering allergic reactions. In some cases, a person may experience symptoms such as diarrhea, typhoid fever, and cholera. Early intervention prevents infestations from worsening or spreading to other parts of the apartment building.

Why do I still see bugs here and there when I have an exterminator service?
The pest control products that are available to professionals, like the Phoenix pest control exterminators at Insectek, have to balance the important task of eliminating as many pests as possible—while at the same time making sure they are safe for you, your family, and of course your pets. Therefore, the extermination team at Insectek Pest Solutions utilizes the best and safest products available but, in most cases, cannot treat every single pest with one pass of the wand.
Are the products your exterminator uses safe for my family and pets?
The products on the market our extermination technicians use in your home undergo rigorous research, development, and testing first at the manufacturer level, then at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and finally, in many cases, through the State Department of Agriculture. Even with this multiple-layer system, it’s important to have an educated understanding of and conservative respect for the pest control products that are applied in and around your home.
In most cases, a person or pet should stay out of the treated area until the pest control solution is dry. Our Phoenix pest control and extermination team will provide you with a detailed service report that states the name of each product used, as well as where it was applied. If you ever have any questions about a specific product we used, please reach out to us so that labels and material data safety sheets can be provided.
What is considered a “green” pest control treatment?
A green or organic pest control treatment is any treatment that uses a naturally occurring, non-synthetically altered, or enhanced pesticide. These products are usually botanical, and they have proven to be quite effective overall. However, they do sometimes lack the residual power of synthetic versions that have been created by scientists in laboratories.
What are the most dangerous pests in Arizona?
There are many dangerous pests in Arizona that not only cause painful bites and stings but also that can pass on dangerous diseases. These pests include scorpions, black widows, brown recluse spiders, ticks, fleas, assassin bugs, and rodents. The Phoenix pest control exterminator team at Insectek is very knowledgeable and experienced in where these pests and many others indigenous to Arizona are concerned.
