Pest Infestations That Are Common In Apartment Buildings

Posted on January 20th, 2021 by Knockout Pest

There are plenty of benefits that are associated with living in an apartment. However, being vulnerable to certain types of pest infestations is not one of them! Continue reading to uncover which pest infestations are common in apartment buildings.


Some landlords allow their tenants to have pets. Unfortunately, these furry friends can make apartment buildings vulnerable to flea infestations. This is especially true for tenants who have recently moved into an apartment where the previous owner’s pet had fleas. 


You know what they say–roaches can survive pretty much anywhere, and that includes your humble abode. This is due to the fact that roaches can go long stretches of time without needing water or food. When they finally need sustenance, you may find them in your kitchen rummaging for something to eat or drink. 

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can be problematic for apartment buildings because they can spread quickly from one apartment to the next. If you have seen bed bugs in your apartment, it is imperative for you to reach out to your neighbors to let them know. That way, you can nip it in the bud. 

Do you have a pest infestation in your apartment? If so, trust the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control to take care of it for you. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
