Local Resources for Bed Bug Assistance
Bed bug support is widely available from a variety of sources. Many communities offer resources related to bed bugs. For example:
- Many counties, such as Contra Costa , and local health departments, such as New York City's, provide online resources regarding bed bug issues both in general and specific to their regions.
- Other state level government departments, such as the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the California Department of Public Health, also have information about bed bugs, eradicating infestations, preventing them and much more from a state level standpoint.
Check these and visit the website of your state or local health and regulatory departments as possible sources of bed bug information and assistance.
Your state cooperative extension service office may be able to help with bed bug identification.
For issues related to paying for bed bug control, check with your local social service agencies. Financial assistance is not generally available. For example, EPA does not have any resources to pay for bed bug control.
