Frequent Questions

Bed bug treatments are expensive. Can EPA help pay for the service?

The EPA's role with regard to bed bugs is primarily as the federal agency with regulatory oversight of pesticides used to mitigate bed bug infestations. We provide extensive information on our bed bugs web pages, including how to deal with infestations and links to other sources of information. The EPA has no authority when it comes to pest infestations at a particular site. As a federal regulatory agency, we also cannot fund or recommend specific on-site bed bug treatments. You might consider contacting your local health department to see if they have any advice for you.
