Best Practices in Bed Bug Control, HUD Regulations, and How to Ensure Compliance

Bed bug infestations have become a serious problem in housing throughout the country. HUD Insured and Assisted Multifamily properties are not immune to infestations. We need to arm ourselves with the knowledge and tools to combat this problem of bed bug bites and bedbug infestation. We also need to know HUD’s position on this issue and what is expected of owner/agents by HUD to continue to be compliant in all areas.

In this session, expert speaker Debbie Hixon will provide you best practices, tips and strategies on tackling the bed bug infestations from a chemical, physical and behavioral viewpoint. You will understand how and with whom you should collaborate to achieve successful results and avoid bedbug bites. In view of the seriousness of this problem, Debbie will discuss the barriers to fighting this problem and what tools can be used to break down these barriers.

After attending this webinar, you will be equipped with the latest, helpful resources for complying with HUD to fight bed bug infestations before they become a serious compliance headache.
