Nothing will send a prospective tenant packing or start the onslaught of negative online reviews like cockroaches, bed bugs and other insect infestations around your apartment complex. Offering internal as well as external services for your apartments, our technicians know how to install preventative and active pest control solutions for your property.

- Ants (excluding pharaoh, carpenter and fire)
Upon request, we can also provide flea control services for complexes that allow pets, and wildlife management for larger North Carolina pests. To speak to our team about pest control management options, call us or contact us through the form below.
Clegg’s Pest Control: Combatting Bed Bugs in North Carolina Apartments
Our pest management professionals are determined to help lead the charge against a consistent problem in North Carolina apartment complexes: bed bugs. If apartment units are not properly fumigated or otherwise treated, bed bugs can take up residence with an unknowing new tenant. Even worse, they can travel within buildings through existing ports in the walls, such as electrical outlets and holes left by pipes, spreading throughout several units.
When you call Clegg’s, we’ll match the best liquid or heat treatment option to the level of infestation in your apartment complex. We’ll also educate apartment residents on any steps they can take to prevent the bugs from entering their homes, as well as address any current risk factors. We offer monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and even weekly pest control services in NC, VA and SC.
Identifying Common Pests in Apartment Complexes
Two of the most common pests found in apartment complexes are cockroaches and ants. Both of these pests are drawn to small, cluttered spaces where they can find food. They love to find crumbs of food on countertops and will keep coming back for more once they have found an inhabitable place. It is best to do preventative care, but if it is too late, call a professional to get help. There are a few things you can keep an eye out for that will indicate the presence of cockroaches or ants.
Common signs of cockroaches in an apartment:
- An unusual odor
- Shedded skin and molts on surfaces
- Brown/black colored droppings
Common signs of ants in an apartment:
- The presence of ant nests are visible outside
- Trailing ants on countertops
- Pet bowls show presence of ants
Ultimately, the most obvious sign of these pests being present is visibly seeing them. If you have noticed any of the indicators above or you have physically seen a pest in your apartment complex or a facility you manage, please don’t hesitate to call us or fill out an online request. Your local pest control heroes are prepared and ready to help you get rid of bugs for good.
Townhome Pest Control Solutions
When it comes to owning or renting a townhome, the only thing you want to share with your neighbor is a wall. Living in a townhome complex, it is likely that you will hear the occasional loud music from your neighbor or smell the fish they are making for dinner but that doesn’t mean you have to share your home with their unwanted guests. We aren’t talking about the pesky solicitors that ring your neighbors doorbell at 8:15 a.m. on a Saturday morning or their oversharing Aunt Karen, no, we’re talking about PESTS!
Townhome Pest Prevention Tips
Be Proactive. Don’t wait for a problem to occur. Pests are sneaky and it’s not always possible to pinpoint where they originated or are migrating from, but there are small steps that you can take to prevent or limit an infestation.
Windows, sliding glass doors, AC units, and doorways are all possible entrance points for the critters. When inspecting windows and doors pay close attention to areas that allow for light to shine through or where you feel air pushing in. Gaps as small as 1/16 inch or less are large enough for insects and spiders. Install door sweeps or thresholds at the base of all exterior entry doors. Apply caulk around windows and doors. Seal utility openings where pipes and wires enter the home.
Keep Things Clean
Standard daily and weekly upkeep of your home will also help keep pests from visiting and getting too comfortable. Dispose of garbage regularly. Wipe down countertops and sweep floors to keep your townhome clear of crumbs and spills. Ants love sugary treats. Vacuum at least once a week. Keep pet food cleaned up, in a sealed container, and pet bowls clean. Store pantry items in sealed plastic containers. Check under sinks for moisture and leaky pipes, regularly.
Check Those Packages
Over 35 million packages are delivered each day. From mattresses to groceries, most households receive some type of package each week. Unfortunately, cardboard boxes are a great mode of transportation for pests. To limit potential infestations, check boxes before bringing them indoors.
