Why you need strata pest control
Common property, such as foyers, lifts, fences, gardens and swimming pools are areas of shared responsibility. If processes aren’t put in place, these areas can either become neglected, or one person reluctantly takes on the responsibility. At best, this person does a good job, until a holiday or sickness comes along. At worst, they do a quick fix, and these areas deteriorate.
Cockroaches are attracted to damp, unclean areas. Although these pests are shy, they’re visible once their numbers reach a threshold. A cockroach infestation will easily invade private units and apartments.
But, treating a private area will only be a short-term fix. For a long-term solution, common areas such as stairwells also need to be treated.
Another pest we often find around strata buildings is rodents. Rats and mice can spread diseases in areas of high-density living.

Who is responsible for strata pest control?
Generally, the landlord is responsible for pest control treatment if pests are present before a tenant moves in. If pests have developed since the tenant moved in, it’s the tenant’s responsibility. Some landlords organise regular pest control for the upkeep of their investment property and claim it as a tax deduction.
The body corporate is responsible for any pest inspection, prevention and treatment work on common property
Ways to reduce the risk of pests in your strata building
Our pest technician may recommend ways to decrease the likelihood of pests in your building. These could include
- Make doors to common areas, such as stairwells and halls close automatically
- Remove any decaying timber or cardboard boxes which could be nesting sites
- Make sure lids fit well on bins and empty them when full
- Keep common areas clean and tidy
- Repair cracks or damage where pests can enter
- Fixing water leaks and keep soil and timber away from the building perimeter, which could attract borers
