CT Bed Bug Bill Resurfaces

from NPMA

The Connecticut General Assembly will once again consider legislation establishing the rights and and responsibilities of landlords and tenants in managing bed bug infestations in multifamily housing. The measure narrowly missed clearing the General Assembly the last two years.

Under House Bill 6759, landlords must have a qualified inspector inspect the unit suspected of being infested and any contiguous unit within five days of being alerted by a tenant of a possible infestation. The measure also defines a "qualified inspector" as "a certified applicator, local health department official or bed bug detection team retained by a landlord to conduct an inspection for an infestation of bed bugs." Furthermore, the legislation requires bed bug detection teams to hold a current, independent, third-party certification in accordance with the NPMA's Minimum Standards for Canine Bed Bug Detection Team Certification.
