Does Your State Law Say Anything About Bed Bugs?

Rachel Bell

posted onMay 21st, 2018

Bed bugs are horrifying. The mere thought of bed bugs strikes a deep fear within me, shaking me to my core. Theyre a big concern for anyone renting housing, and in more active rental markets they can be scarily common. After learning that bed bugs are more likely to breed and feed (ew) in the summer months, I decided to look into the laws that surround pest infestation in the United States.

Only 21 states have laws regulating bed bug infestation; some of those state laws only deal with hotels and offer no guidance to landlords. While a rental property infested with bed bugs would likely be seen as being actively in violation of the warranty of habitability, a specific law addressing bed bugs will offer you some protection and peace of mind. Find your state below to see whether your state requires landlords to take action when it comes to bed bugs.

Alabama

Alabama state law addresses bedbug infestations in hotels, but there is no law that specifically requires landlords to deal with an infestation in a rental unit.

Alaska

Alaska state law does not address bed bugs.

Arizona

Arizona state law requires landlords to give bed bug educational materials to all tenants. Its against the law for a landlord to knowingly rent a unit that is infested with bed bugs. Tenants are legally barred from bringing any belongings that are infested into a rental unit. At the same time, Arizona law prevents cities and towns from implementing laws about bed bugs unless the laws control how to dispose of any items that are infested.

Arkansas

Arkansas state law does not address bed bugs. Another reason to not rent in Arkansas.

California

California state law states that it is illegal for a landlord to show or rent any unit that has a bed bug infestation. If a unit is inspected by pest control, a landlord must report to the tenants the results of the inspection within 2 days. Landlords are required to provide tenants with educational material about bed bugs when they move in.

Colorado

Colorado state law does not address bed bugs.

Connecticut

Connecticut state law sets guidelines for both landlords and tenants when it comes to handling bed bugs. Tenants must promptly notify a landlord orally or in writing if they suspect that their unit is infested. Landlords then have 5 days to have the unit inspected and report the results to the tenant within 2 days. If the unit is infested, the landlord has 5 days to get it treated by a pest control professional. Your landlord is barred from renting a unit that they know is infested. Connecticuts law surrounding bed bugs is one of the most specific ones in the country - it even demands that a landlord vacuum before treating a unit for pests.

Delaware

Delaware state law does not address bed bugs.

Florida

Florida state law says that landlords are required to take reasonable steps to exterminate bed bugs in a rental unit.

Georgia

Georgia state law demands that hotels exterminate any pests, but offers no legal guidance for landlords.

Hawaii

Hawaii state law does not address bed bugs.

Idaho

Idaho state law does not address bed bugs.

Illinois

Illinois state law does not offer any landlord-specific guidance on how to handle bed bugs. The only state law that mentions bed bugs says that railroad operators cant operate unless they know their train is free of pest infestation.

Indiana

Indiana state law does not address bed bugs.

Iowa

Iowa state law only speaks to bed bugs in migrant labor camps. Helpful.

Kansas

Kansas state law defines a bed bug infestation as an imminent health hazard.

Kentucky

Kentucky state law does not address bed bugs.

Louisiana

Louisiana state law does not address bed bugs.

Maine

Maine state law demands that, if a tenant notifies a landlord of a bed bug infestation, the landlord must conduct an inspection of the unit within 5 days. If the unit is infested, the landlord has 10 days to schedule a treatment from an insured pest control company. A landlord has to tell any prospective or new tenants if a unit or its surrounding units have are currently infested, and cannot rent any infested unit. If your landlord fails to follow this law, they will be forced to pay at least a $250 penalty fee, and possibly pay for any damages.

Nevada

Nevada state law only addresses bed bug infestations in hotels or labor camps.

New Hampshire

New Hampshire state law restricts landlords from renting bed bug infested units. Landlords are required to periodically inspect all of their rental units for infestation. If a landlord tells a tenant that a treatment for bed bugs has been scheduled and the tenant fails to give the necessary access to the unit, the landlord has the right to evict the tenant. Landlords are financially responsible for bed bug treatments and are legally required to investigate any report of infestation from a tenant.

Your daily 6: Iranians vow revenge, bedbugs freed in Walmart and Golden Globe awards and red carpet – STLtoday.com

This image released by NBC shows Tom Hanks accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020. (Paul Drinkwater/NBC via AP)

The 77th Golden Globes were meant to be a coronation for Netflix. Instead, a pair of big-screen epics took top honors Sunday, as Sam Mendes' technically dazzling World War I tale "1917" won best picture, drama, and Quentin Tarantino's radiant Los Angeles fable "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" won best film, comedy or musical.

The wins for "1917" were a surprise, besting such favorites as Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story," the leading nominee with six nods, and Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman." Both are acclaimed Netflix releases but collectively took home just one award, for Laura Dern's supporting performance as a divorce attorney in "Marriage Story." "The Irishman" was shut out.

"1917" also won best director for Mendes. The film was made in sinuous long takes, giving the impression that the movie unfolds in one lengthy shot.

"I hope this means that people will turn up and see this on the big screen, the way it was intended," said Mendes, whose film expands nationwide Friday.

Though set around the 1969 Manson murders "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" was classified a comedy and had an easier path to victory than the more competitive drama category. Brad Pitt won for best supporting actor, his first acting Globe since winning in 1996 for "12 Monkeys," padding his front-runner status for the Oscars. Tarantino also won best screenplay.

"I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn't because any woman I stand next to they say I am dating so it'd just be awkward," Pitt said.

Ricky Gervais, hosting the NBC-telecast ceremony for the fifth time, began the evening with an expletive-laden plea against hypocrisy, telling winners to stick to thanking their agent and their god. But throughout the night, winners seized their moment to speak about current events including the wildfires in Australia, rising tensions with Iran, women's rights and the importance of LGBT trailblazers.

Patricia Arquette, a winner for her performance in Hulu's "The Act," referenced the United States' targeted killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, saying history wouldn't remember the day for the Globes but will see "a country on the brink of war." She urged all to vote in November's presidential election.

Gervais opened the show by stating that Netflix had taken over Hollywood. given its commanding 34 nominations coming into the Globes. "This show should just be me coming out going: 'Well done, Netflix. You win everything tonight," he said.

As it turned out, he was wrong. Netflix won only two awards: Dern's win plus one for Olivia Colman's performance in "The Crown." It was a definite hiccup for the streaming service, which is aiming for its first best-picture win at the Academy Awards next month.

Instead, the awards were widely spread out among traditional Hollywood studios, indie labels like A24, cable heavyweights like HBO and relative newcomers like Hulu.

And plenty of viewers tuned in to see who wore what:

Does Your State Have a Bedbug Law? – The Spruce

Some states have had laws regarding bedbugs, infestations, and their control since the early 1900s when bedbugs were a significant pest. Then, as bedbug infestations waned, so too did bedbug laws. But as the 21st century continues to see a resurgence of the tiny biting bugs, states began reassessing their laws, with many updating or adding new regulation.

According to the EPA, there are 21 states that have some level of law or regulation that applies to bed bugs, nine of which have been enacted since 2005. Requirements focus on hotels and landlords or other property managers. The National Conference of State Legislatures lists the following states as having laws addressing bedbug infestations:
