Bed Bugs New Hampshire

" Bed bugs New Hampshire cases are on the rise, with local pest control firms reporting more cases in the past 2 years than in the last 5. The Union Leader reports that bed bugs are an exploding problem across the state including Nashua, Berlin and Milford.."

New Hampshire is no exception when it comes to bed bugs.  In testimony before the House Health and Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee, one exterminator testified that the number of bed bug related calls rose from between 1 to 10/yr to over 300 in the past 2 years.

To combat the local bed bug problem, committees are forming to both educate home owners and to advocate for a coordinated state wide effort to fight the insects.  For example, in Manchester, the Manchester Bed Bug Action Committee has been formed to coordinate efforts among home owners, renters, exterminators, health officials and the motel/hotel industry.

The good news for renters in New Hampshire is that landlords are required to pay for bed bug treatment if the bedbugs are found in more than 1 apartment unit, or in 1 apartment and a common area.  

The key to treatment is to act early, so be sure to report any problem to both your landlord and the 211 hot line.
