Bed Bugs+ Subdued light. Insects having negative phototaxis show an identical reaction, when they are subjected to a rapid increase of light. The bedbug is, as we know, energetically photophobic; it hides in the darkest cracks and leaves only during the night. In the daytime, says Bohn, if an accident has brought it from the shade into the light, it immediately executes a rotation of 180 degrees, which brings it into the shadow. On a sheet of paper, it walks away from the luminous rays and turns about when one holds a candle toward it.It is very difficult,adds Bohn,to make a bedbug which is on a black paper pass over upon a piece of white paper. Anytime a Bed Bug is startled with a handheld candle or light of course it's going to run and hide. A Bed Bug chooses a white paper over other colors when not disturbed. Negative phototaxis testing is flawed. Bed Bugs have Positive Phototaxis. U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Bed bugs, a 1937 Leaflet No. 146, Great 8 pages, stating,Bedbugs are normally nocturnal. When the lights are out they emerge from their daytime hiding places and seek to feed upon their host. Sometimes, when very hungry, they will feed during the daytime in subdued light. Their normally nocturnal habit is modified necessarily when they infest furniture in rest rooms in stores, theater seats, desks in offices, and similar situations that are not frequented by man throughout the night. In such places, bedbugs often bite persons during the day.Bed Bug Statements: Bed bugs are nocturnal, but may feed during the day in areas with reduced lighting such as theaters when no hosts are present at night. Currently. Cornell University says, Bed bugs can be enticed to bite during the day if light is subdued, and they are hungry. Bed Bugs are a DIY situation.

There was a "major" infestation discovered in August 2013 in a unit on the ground floor of this building. It spread to the unit sharing a wall and the 2 units sharing the ceiling with this Ground Zero unit. (A neighbor above discovered bugs in their room, and it was traced back to the the original unit with the "major infestation" below.) Professional treatments were applied with follow-up treatments, and follow-up inspections revealed no further bugs. There were no further complaints from those

tenants since.

However, in January of 2015, a single bug was discovered in another unit on the 3rd floor. Professionals treated the unit, and no further bug/eggs were found on the follow-up treatment/inspections. Also, inspections of the unit above and below revealed no signs of infestation. However, the unit beside (sharing the wall), has yet to be inspected as of 3 weeks after the initial discovery. The professional explained the building is old and there are all sorts of dated electrical pipes and outlets that can act as "highways" for the pests. There are also a number of dogs coming/going from the building, in addition to a homeless person found defecating in the ground floor laundry room because the front security gate had been broken (despite numerous complaints from tenants) for several weeks. Apparently, the 3rd floor tenants had not done any traveling, but were at a movie theater and on public transit in addition to several cafes/restaurants, etc prior to their discovery of the single bug.

Shockingly, people moving into this building are paying over $3200/mo rent for 600 sq ft.
