We work with a number of community partners as the West Central Bed Bug Coalition to share information and help combat bed bug infestations in our neighbourhoods. For more about the coalition and to find bed bug prevention and treatment information see our Bite Back Winnipeg website.

For information about city-wide services and initiatives, such as the Bug N Scrub program, visit the Province of Manitoba’s bed bug website or contact their Bed Bug Hotline at 1-855-3MB-BUGS (1-855-362-2847) or bedbugs@gov.mb.ca.

DMSMCA provides steamer and vacuum rentals free to residents of our neighbourhood when available. At times we will rent these items to people outside our neighbourhood at a rate of $40 for a three day period. A $50 refundable deposit and piece of photo ID is required. Contact us for availability.
