Pest Control at The Woodsman
To all owners and tenants at The Woodsman Condos
Pests and rodents aren't simply a nuisance - they can severely affect your health and the health of your family. This is why bug and insect prevention is critical in protecting homes, businesses, schools and any other place where human beings live, work or play from a pest infestation.
Here are some general tips to prevent house hold pests and rodents from entering your home:
Exterior conditions – HOA responsibility:
- Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home including entry points for utilities and pipes.
- Keep tree branches and shrubbery well-trimmed and away from the house.
- Repair fascia and rotted roof shingles; some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
- Replace weather-stripping and repair loose mortar around basement foundation and windows.
- Keep basements, attics, and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry.
- Owners responsible for interior access sites
- HOA responsible for roof, eaves and foundation
- Store garbage in sealed containers and dispose of it regularly.
- Store fire wood at least 20 feet away from the house and five inches off the ground.
- Call a qualified pest professional for additional advice and treatment if necessary.
All Home Owner’s Associations have different pest management plans in place to protect property.Some HOAs cover interior and exterior treatments, but some do not.The properties that fall in the “do not treat” situation, the owner is responsible for the prevention and treatment of pests that come in or affect the property.The owner’s failure to plug interior holes, cover door gaps and the like can give access to pests such as rodents and are not a HOA responsibility.
At The Woodsman Condo complex the HOA is not responsible for interior pest servicing. If you notice exterior conditions that would encourage pest and rodent infestation please contact BVP Management for repair. Please contact BVP Management with any questions regarding pest control and any other HOA questions.
