BEDBUGS, BEDBUG LAWS, BEDBUG PICTURES

Bed Bugs are the little creatures that may come out at night and invade your bed or furniture - like couches or mattresses. They seem to prefer human and other warm blooded creatures.

In most Bed Bug laws enacted or to be enacted, "Bedbug" means an insect of the species "Cimex lectularius," commonly referred to as a bedbug

WHAT DO BED BUGS LOOK LIKE?

Adult bedbugs are reddish-brown, with a flat oval shape, and wingless, with microscopic hairs. They don't move fast, so you should be able to spot them.

Bed Bugs CANNOT FLY.
TENANTS, LANDLORDS, AND BED BUGS - THE LAW

In New York City and many other states, towns and cities, landlords are now responsible for getting rid of bed bugs in infested buildings and units and they must pay for extermination. WHAT'S A LANDLORD TO DO? DO YOU INSPECT EVERY PIECE OF ITEM A TENANT MOVES IN WITH OR CHECK THEM EVERY DAY BEFORE THEY ENTER THE BUILDING, HOUSE OR APARTMENT?? 

In New Jersey, see ASSEMBLY, No. 3203. Lots of requirements for both landlords to notify tenants and tenants to notify the landlord. Since I'm a NJ landlord, I'm still trying to figure it out. The state holds landlords responsible for extermination in “multi-unit” buildings of three or more apartments – if the bugs are found in two or more units or in common areas.....

Exterminator

If you choose to, you may call an exterminator who will most likely come back every month to spray. Your landlord MAY NOT BE RESPONSIBLE for the problem, unless local or state law state otherwise.
