Tips From Housing – Pest Control & Unit Inspections

April 1, 2022

As many of you know, MHA has a professional pest control technician who visits apartments on a regular schedule that is listed in your 2022 MHA Calendar. Some residents have complained that these visits often go beyond pest control, and include general housekeeping, maintenance review, and miscellaneous observations such as unregistered animals or open drugs. This is allowed. Our maintenance staff, including pest control, are the eyes and ears of MHA. We expect them to notice any and all activities in the apartments and on our grounds and to report them to management if it poses a health and safety risk, or is a violation of the lease. Therefore, you should treat each pest control visit as a full unit inspection. Thank you for your cooperation in allowing us to do our job.
