Bed Bugs! (Day 3)

August 29, 2017

 Flatline Pest Control, Inc. treats homes and commercial structures for Bed Bugs using several different chemical methods. We decide with our clients which is the best solution individually. Depending on our clients wishes we may use a chemical or a more natural base solution. While there is a cost factor (investment ) for the chemical I believe the time involved in treatment is the customers biggest expense. Our technicians will work with you to create cost effective treatment plan for your situation. We are flexible with payment plans in all our pest control treatment program options.

 

 Here is a link to the EPA website on different chemicals approved for treating Bed Bugs.

Legal Issues 

 

 In the pest control industry; we as a provider must by state and federal law continue in education to carry our licence. We have been told by legal; Beg Bugs lawsuits are on the rise against providers and those not having proper pest management protocols in place. We highly recommend all business start considering the legal aspect of lack of pest management program. 

 

 Courts have recognized that victims of Bed Bug-Related injuries can bring claims under multiple legal theories against hotels and motels, landlords, any business owners. We highly recommend that any business owner start implementing a pest control plan for their business to avoid the chance of infestation. As business owners we cannot control what our staff or customers may bring into our work environment.

 

There are two types or categories of compensation available for individuals who have suffered from bed bug bites.

 

1. Economic Damages: Medical expenses, hospitalization and rehabilitation costs, and property damage. 
2. Noneconomic Damages: Pain and suffering, emotional harm and punitive damages.


I have read of a case where a family was awarded over 200k form purchasing a mattress that was infested with Bed Bugs.

 

 In some states, bed bug law suits are brought under the legal theory of Negligence or Breach of the Warranty of Habitability. California just passed laws making it mandatory landlords MUST disclose Bed Bug infestations to new tenants. (Which ethically should be the case.)
