mother of tenant on 09/19/2015
Renter at apartment 509 has reported to management twice about the bed bugs. Yes they sent a company in to stray but what ever they are spraying it is not killing the bugs. He is getting eaten alive. Victoria Pest Control has a Heat Treatment where they heat up the apartment it not only kills the bugs but kills the eggs. Why is the property management not calling this company. (250) 477-0322.The laundry bill and the items washed at the laundry mat are really starting to add up for this tenant
$49.40 for 2 visits at laundry mat.12 loads of laundry done at other persons house. The property managers should have a cleaning company come in and steam clean his carpet and pull out couch with mattress. The bugs are not from him this is his first apartment and everything is new. He vacuums all the time to try and get rid of these bugs that are eating him alive.

Started noticing bites and found the first bug around February 2015. Spoke to the property manager the next day and she had pest control come in the following day to inspect and fumigate. They said they found no signs of infestation but sprayed the apartment anyways. Bites returned a few weeks after and apartment was fumigated a second time.
The property managers are very prompt in responding to reports of bedbugs and both times had pest control come in to fumigate the apartment the day afte
r the issue was brought to their attention. But the apartments in this building have no baseboards and there are many visible gaps between the bottom of the walls and the carpet. Both times pest control came in to fumigate they found no signs of infestation in the mattress or apartment, so I suspect the bugs travel from apartment to apartment through the walls, making fumigation completely useless.

Would you please OMIT my SUITE NUMBER /NAME/ on previous report for # 801-865 View Street!!!!! Thought this was like 'anonymous'!!
So far, bugs taken to Pest Control are Carpet Beetles, almost as bad, but not covered by landlord.
**for YOUR EYES ONLY = Can't remember if used C. Mimms or mommsy for name,
too psyched out at the time reported.
PLEASE DO NOT PUT MY NAME OR SUITE NUMBER IN, YOU ARE CAUSING ME MAJOR GRIEF. FROM REACTIONS.
thank you, please REMOVE REPORT.

Have resided at 865(#801)View Street for 5 years. NEVERhad BITES consistently until June/08, or thought bedbugs until Jan.13/09= 5 bites in straight line on THROAT, 1 line of 3 bites each side where shoulder/arm join. *If curled up on side sleeping would ALL be in same area. Previous to this episode= over June/08-Dec/08=3 dozen bites, grouped in lines of 3-6 at separate times, on arm/rear shoulder/leg/hands,wrist/fingers/NOSE/etc.
Worst ones=JUNE/July: Reactine 20 mg/daily until gone. Sept: sen
t to ER for IV treatment antibiotics 3-4 days,then oral 2000 mg/daily/10 days.,Jan 13/09= antibiotics/1500 mg day/7 days=scars still on. all said"skin infection" from bites.
The BEST part is that CONTRARY to ALL 37 websites including Public Health= the Building Manager, when informed TODAY said"will get pest control over, NO SPECIAL stuff done, and BLAMED MY BELONGINGS FOR HAVING BUGS!!!' AND, my tenant's Insurance DOESN'T cover INSECTS and won't go after Management OR previous PEST CONTROL AGENCY for IMPROPER PROCEDURE!!! In Decmeber/08 I finally had to get on ladder to stuff/tape shut Rangehood openings cut into ceiling/wall.
There are open switch covers.i covered with plastic.
Which means I lose nearly ALL belongings.
I would like to know if PUBLIC building areas= LAUNDRY,garbage chute rooms(locked in summer, but NOT steam-cleaned),HALLWAYS,LOBBY, ELEVATORS, LOCKER ROOM(which is where cast-aways are stored)exterior garbage dumpster room, firestairs(young people use them to visit floor to floor) have been treated AT ALL PREVIOUSLY?
Who do I get help from? 12 story building.

April 2008. 8th floor of the Chelsea apartment. I had many bites over the last week (to be grammatically correct, the bed bugs had many bites on me!) Sighted and squashed one, but couldn't find any more despite having turn mattresses and bed upside down.
The manager revealed that others in the building have the same problem, including one on the same floor as me.
