Owning or managing an apartment complex can be a challenging proposition. Between dealing with tenants and taking care of repairs, it can sometimes be tempting to put the responsibility for pest control services in the hands of the tenants. After all, they are the ones who don’t want the pests and may often be the reason for having the pests invade in the first place. Besides, if you put them in the position to have to pay for pest control, they may be more diligent about preventing infestations. Maybe. Unfortunately, that is rarely how it works out.
Instead, what happens is you have a number of tenants up in arms because of an infestation. If you want to preserve a good relationship with quality tenants, it is a better idea to take care of preventative pest control services yourself. In this way, you are assured that coverage is consistent and all your tenants are happy. What you’ll save by lower vacancy rates will often more than compensate for the cost of pest control services.
Furthermore, since some pests can be damaging to your property, it is vitally important that you keep them from destroying your income-producing investment. You won’t be able to charge your tenant for damage from termites, so rather than incur this costly repair, it is wiser to take care of termite prevention.
