Arizona Bed Bugs

Arizona is a state in the Southwest United States, and was the last of the continental states to be officially given statehood. Though it had been American territory since 1821, it wasn’t until 1912 when it was officially named the 48th state.

Most people are drawn to Arizona because of its natural wonders. The biggest tourist attraction is Grand Canyon National Park, which brought an astounding 2 million visitors in 2020 alone.

Whitewater rafting down the Colorado River is another major attraction, as is the Mojave Desert.

Of course, with all these tourists…

There’s a chance of them bringing bed bugs home.

Arizona Bed Bug Laws

Arizona abides by the same landlord-tenant agreements that other states have. This means that it is the tenant’s responsibility to report any bed bug infestations, and it’s the landlord’s responsibility to remove them.

Tenants are legally allowed to withhold rent if the landlord doesn’t take any steps to remove bed bugs. If a landlord is able to prove that the tenant is responsible for attracting bed bugs, though, then it will become the tenant’s responsibility to remove the bugs at their own expense.

Arizona has some additional ordinances which explicitly target bed bugs. In 2011, a law was passed which required landlords to distribute educational material on bed bugs to all tenants.

Landlords are also prohibited from moving new tenants, as well as any miscellaneous items, into a building once they are aware of an infestation.
