What bylaws are related to bed bug issues or complaints? If the City of Winnipeg's Health Department gets a complaint that a landlord is not treating for bed bugs, a notice is served to the landlord. The notice requires that the landlord hire a pest control company, with a good reputation, to treat for bed bugs.
