One of the trickiest environmental challenges for housing managers is pest management - finding the best way to control unwanted invaders while minimizing the use of potentially toxic pesticides. Pests such as cockroaches, mice, rats and bed bugs can be particularly troublesome in multi-family housing.

In addition to lending properties a poor appearance and potentially causing physical damage, pests can cause health problems that could make living in a property uncomfortable, dangerous or even deadly.
