Bed bugs are a serious community health problem that affects people in all types of housing and at all income levels. Solutions require an understanding of the biology of bed bugs and the dedicated efforts to prevent and eliminate them. Although bed bugs are not known to cause disease, they are “environmentally communicable,” easily spreading from place to place, and like disease, cause great suffering. This webinar will share the biology of bed bugs, potential legal remedies and their limitations, and the role of landlords, tenants, housing and public health officials, and the wider community in preventing and eliminating them.
This webinar is free and attendees may qualify for CLE credit.
