Code Enforcement - ViewPoint Cloud


Education and cooperation are very important parts of successfully eliminating a bed bug infestation. The Bed Bug Law, NH RSA 48-A:14 I,I-a and NH RSA 540-A:3 are the State Statues that govern the enforcement of a bed bug infestation. The law simply requires a landlord to respond to a bed bug complaint within 7 days, and to provide treatment "that substantially reduces the presence of bed bugs in a dwelling unit for a period of at least 60 days". If there is no cooperation between the tenant and landlord on a comprehensive program to remediate an infestation the problem will continue, even with Health Officer enforcement, and possibly spread to other dwelling units or buildings.
