It's compulsory to notify the residents of multiple occupancy residential complexes, when common areas are going to be treated with pesticides. At least 5 working days' notice must be given by the person or company organising the treatment, and you as the pest management technician, must give notice while the application is under way.
Multiple occupancy residential complexes are units, flats, townhouses, villas, and long-stay caravan parks with 3 or more residences. Common areas of these complexes include:
- share laundries
- car parks
- roof cavities, and
- sub-floor areas.
