HSABC & TRAC Webinar: Bedbugs

November 4, 2020, 10:00 - 11:30 AM


Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans, usually at night. They are often found in dwellings that have a high rate of occupant turnover such as hotels, apartments and shelters. Bed bugs have six legs, a large antennae, and a flat oval-shaped body of roughly half a centimetre in length. Their light brown colour turns to rust-red after feeding.
Since bed bugs are not known to transmit infectious disease, they are not widely considered a serious health risk. As a result, the presence of bed bugs cannot generally be used as a valid reason to end your tenancy under the Residential Tenancy Act, or as a ground on which to apply for an emergency repair order through the Residential Tenancy Branch.
