Minnesota Administrative Rules

4625.1700 INSECT AND RODENT CONTROL.

Every hotel, motel, lodging house, and resort shall be so constructed and equipped as to prevent the entrance, harborage, or breeding of flies, roaches, bedbugs, rats, mice, and all other insects and vermin, and specific means necessary, for the elimination of such pests such as cleaning, renovation, or fumigation shall be used. The commissioner may order the facility to hire an exterminator licensed by the state to exterminate pests when:

A.

the infestation is so extensive that it is unlikely that a nonprofessional can eradicate the pests effectively; or

B.

the extermination method of choice can only be carried out by a licensed exterminator; or

C.

upon reinspection, it is found that an establishment has not been brought into compliance with a prior order to rid the establishment of pests.
