In June, AudioSolutionz have lined up a formidable line up webinars for Housing and Construction compliance—one if its bestseller is the event on minimizing bed bug infestation and complying with HUD regulations.

On Thu, June 23, 2016 AudioSolutionz will host a Live Webinar presented by noted expert Debbie HIxon titled “How to Minimize Bed Bugs Infestations: Complying With HUD.” This session aims to provide HUD-insured and Assisted Multifamily properties personnel with the latest, helpful resources for complying with HUD to fight bed bugs before they become a serious compliance headache.

As bed bug infestations are becoming increasingly -- and alarmingly -- common, home owners have a growing responsibility to keep their units pest-free. Until recently, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been vague on how it expects homeowners to prevent and control bed bugs -- and has offered few details on what homeowners, staff and residents should do.

In response to pressure from the National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) and other industry heavyweights, HUD has re-issued a significantly revised version of its bed bug guidelines. Through a notice issues on April 23, 2016, HUD made significant updates and changes specifically addressing bed bugs in its "Guidelines on Addressing Infestations in HUD-Insured and Assisted Multifamily Housing" (Notice H 2012-5). Although the changes to the guidelines are varied, the overarching idea is that HUD wants homeowners to develop an Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM) specifically focused on preventing bed bug infestations for multifamily buildings.

After attending this webinar with Debbie Hixon, homeowners, staff and residents will be equipped with the latest, helpful resources for complying with HUD to fight bed bugs before they become a serious compliance headache. HUD has released two notices and much written information on this issue. This session will help attendees make certain that all of the agency’s requirements are being met and compliance is ensured.

This webinar will touch upon the following points:

  • HUD changes that inspectors must comply with when conducting a REAC inspection.
  • How and when to notify residents of an infestation.
  • Responsibility of owner/agents after a discovery of a bed bug infestation.
  • Major challenges in achieving compliance and controlling bed bugs.
  • Potential solutions to these problems.
  • Training for staff and residents to ensure compliance

Attendees will be provided with best practices, tips and strategies on tackling the bed bug problem from a physical, behavioral and chemical standpoint.
