Bed Bugs

Bed Bug Information and ResourcesThe City of Concord recognizes bed bugs as a public health pest, capable of producing negative physical health, mental health and economic consequences. The City is devoted to providing information and available resources to property owners and tenants alike to aide in their efforts to abate bed bugs. The City of Concord encourages owners and tenants to work cooperatively to address bed bugs in a prompt manner to help prevent the spread of bugs to adjacent units and within the community. In circumstances when effective cooperation cannot be achieved, the City of Concord commits to address the matter as a public nuisance.
