Bed bugs are becoming an increasing problem in rentals.  Under state law landlords are obligated to manage infestations in rental units, except in single family residences or when the infestation is caused by the tenant.  In order to hold the tenants responsible, the owner would have to be able to demonstrate that the infestation was caused by the tenant, which can be difficult to do.  Also, it may not be in the owner’s best interests to have the tenants attempt to exterminate pests that cause property damage.
