Homeowners Associations (HOAs) – Here’s Your One Stop Shop

For a property manager, the happiness of the elected members of your HOA board as well as the community as a whole is your number one priority. Since happiness and safety tend to go hand in hand, you probably take the responsibility for the safety of your members just as seriously. The members in your HOA or Community Association pay good money for dues that are meant to be used to keep the play areas safe for the kids and maintenance and upkeep on the pool but it should also be used for pest control. They may not realize that, be we know you do.

Waltham Pest Services has the experience (130 years of it) needed to help you take care of all the pests that can plague the residents in your association. Some spots where pests can be a serious nuisance may surprise you. Here are a couple of examples:

Water Features, Ponds, and Pools

The members of your community enjoy these features in the warmer months – and you want them to. But uninvited BBQ guests like flies, gnats, midges, and mosquitoes can make it difficult to have a good time. You need a people and pet-friendly pest control company that can keep those pests at bay. Waltham Pest Services does that, but we go one step further. We also use a product that won’t affect the birds around your area, your beautifully kept landscaping, or the fish that live in your ponds.

Your Clubhouse and Common Area

Celebrations like anniversaries, graduations, and birthdays can not only be enjoyed at your clubhouse, they can help bring in revenue for your association, but not if it’s shut down because of a pest infestation. If it is open and being used, just know ants and rodents love the crumbs and sugary spills that will inevitably happen at a party. In addition, there’s also water and shelter, so even if you clean up well if those pests get in, they will stay. A professional pest control company can not only escort them out but will employ strategies and techniques to keep them out in the first place.

Nature Trails and Paths

Exercise, especially in the fresh air, is good for your body and your soul. But trails and paths can be a haven for ticks and mosquitoes. Ticks are known for carrying Lyme disease, but they also carry the bacterial infection, Mountain Spotted Fever. Do you know what the most dangerous animal in the world is? You may be surprised that it’s the mosquito, but remember they carry EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis), West Nile virus, and Malaria. It’s more than itchy bites or pulling a tick off your dog. It’s a public health issue, so treating walking paths and trails for ticks and mosquitoes is pretty important.

The Homes in Your Associations

Whether it’s a house, condominium, or townhouse, there are plenty of pests that can find their way inside. They all want what everyone else wants – shelter, food, and water. Any reputable pest company or exterminator will be able to help you with ants, flies, and rodents, but can they also help you with a hornet or wasp nest? How about the notorious bed bug? Not only does Waltham employ proven, proactive bed bug techniques, but we can offer educational training sessions for your members during one of their scheduled meetings about how to prevent bed bugs. And should a homeowner in your association have a pest issue inside their home, you can recommend your pest company because that’s the one you already know and trust.
