The National Conference of State Legislature reports that:

"A resurgence in the incidence of bedbug infestations across the nation has led to an increased focus in state legislatures on this pest. Bedbugs, which can take up home in clothes, beds, couches and other upholstered items, are not known to carry disease. They can, however, cause rashes and allergic reactions.

Many state legislatures have laws on the books addressing bedbugs that date back to the early 20th century. Since the recent rise in bedbug infestations, other states have passed laws to address this pest.  To date, ten states have statutes addressing bedbugs. These address bedbug infestations in rental properties (Florida and Maine); hotels (Nevada, Ohio and West Virginia); schools (New York); railcars (Illinois); and migrant labor camps (Iowa). Arizona and Texas list bedbugs as public health nuisances. Illinois has authorized a state report on the prevention, management, and control of bed bug infestations."

Nevada N.R.S. 447.030, requires that any room in any hotel which is infested with vermin or bedbugs or similar things be thoroughly fumigated, disinfected and renovated until such vermin or bedbugs or other similar things are entirely exterminated.

As of August 1, 2011 their is currently no additional bed bug legislative pending in the State of Nevada.
