We do not investigate bedbug infestations because they're considered a nuisance and not a public health problem.
- If you have a housing question that does not require legal advice, contact the free Colorado Housing Connects helpline to find answers. Colorado Housing Connects can help you navigate housing information and resources. Call 1-844-926-6632 or visit coloradohousingconnects.org.
- Your local public health agency may have additional resources.
- Denver residents can find additional resources on the City and County of Denver's website on Denver's residential rental property page.
Steps to prevent and control bedbugs are available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Recommendations for addressing a bedbug infestation:
- Make a plan and prepare for control.
- Contact a pest management professional with experience and knowledge of the inspection, identification, and extermination of bedbugs.
- These professionals follow Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles, which will include monitoring for any bugs that may have been missed during treatment.
- Use caution when using pesticides and always follow label directions.
