Colorado Bed Bugs

Colorado is a state located in the western United States, just along the edge of the Great Plains. As of 2020 it is home to 5.7 million residents, making it the 21st most populated state.

The state is famous for its geography and nature. The Rocky Mountains run through much of the state, drawing millions of people to its famous ski resorts. Other landmarks include the Colorado River and the Four Corners Monument.

Many different species of animals make their home in Colorado. Most are American icons like bald eagles, pronghorns and black bears.

But another, more infamous creature lurks in the state…

Bed bugs are a common problem in Colorado.

Are Bed Bugs Common in Colorado?

Bed bug infestations happen all across the United States, and Colorado is no exception.

Even with the alpine temperatures and thinner oxygen levels in the mountainous parts of the state, bed bugs have managed to thrive just as they have everywhere else.

One Colorado exterminator reported receiving at least 3 calls a day for bed bug infestations. Denver, the state capital, is particularly infamous for its bed bug problem.

The state ranked 20th on Orkin’s 2021 list of worst bed bug cities.

The reason bed bugs flourish is that they can survive in almost any environment. They can live anywhere from unkempt homes to 5-star hotels, and are able to live in both hot and cold regions of the state. As long as they have a steady supply of food (that is, human blood), bed bugs are right at home.

Is the Landlord Responsible for Bed Bugs in Colorado?

Colorado, like all states, enforces a series of tenant-landlord agreement laws. In the case of bed bugs, it’s the responsibility of the tenant to report an infestation as soon as it’s discovered.

The property owner is responsible for taking the necessary steps to remove the infestation once initially discovered. Colorado law explicitly cites “Appropriate extermination in response to an infestation of vermin in a residential unit” as one of the standards for a habitable rental property.

This isn’t exclusive to landlords, by the way. Business owners, such as hotel managers, are also bound by these laws.

If you suffered from a bed bug problem and can prove that a landlord or property owner failed to take action, you may be able to file a lawsuit.
