AN ACT CONCERNING THE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF LANDLORDS AND TENANTS REGARDING BED BUG INFESTATION.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
Section 1. (NEW) (Effective October 1, 2012) (a) As used in this section: (1) “Certified applicator” means an individual who is certified in accordance with section 22a-54 of the general statutes by the Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection to perform application within this state of a pesticide or class of pesticides; (2) “bed bug” means the common bed bug (Cimex lectularius); (3) “reasonable measures” means those methods commonly used and accepted as being effective for eliminating or controlling bed bug infestations; and (4) “landlord”, “owner”, “person” and “tenant” shall have the same meanings as in section 47a-1 of the general statutes.
Bedbug extermination is costly. Lately we have been seeing a higher incidence of treatment for bedbugs that may not be present or may only be present in a particular area. Have a certified Harlem River Hounds dog check your property before you wind up paying for expensive (and sometimes unnecessary) treatment. See our testimonial from L.M.
