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.
Jerry has just arrived to join the Harlem River Hounds team. He is a bedbug sniffer extraordinaire with lots of good energy. Let us bring Jerry to your home, business or other environment to keep you a step ahead of the bedbugs.
