As a general rule, condo owners are responsible for pest control within their own property, and the condo or HOA association is responsible for pest control in common areas. Fault when it comes to pests is difficult to assign (and largely irrelevant). The best outcomes arise if the problem of pests is dealt with quickly and in a coordinated manner.
Condo associations will typically initiate pest control measures to clear infestations on common property. Owners may undertake complementary services within their property if that applies. Obviously the nature of pests varies greatly. Depending on whether your issue is termites. mice or pigeons the solution will vary!
Pests can be difficult to eliminate, and often return if conditions allow. They also tend to have a degree of mobility within small areas so can move around if there isn’t a comprehensive treatment plan.
