BED BUGS

Bedbug infestations

CDPHE DOES NOT investigate bedbug infestations because they're considered a nuisance and not a health problem.

Information about bedbugs is available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

  • Recommendations for addressing a bedbug infestation:
    • Contact a licensed pest control operator who's experienced and knowledgeable in the inspection, identification and extermination of bedbugs.
    • Using insecticides on your own can be dangerous and ineffective, and may even spread the infestation.
  • Colorado organizations involved in housing regulations and tenant-landlord mediation include:

Denver County Environmental Health and Housing
