I was living at this address until June of 2010. Trust me, there were bedbugs.
I don't recall exactly when they invaded my apartment. It started out slowly, a bite here or there. I thought mosquito or spider. Then it started in earnest.
I am fortunate that I sleep wearing sweats, with elastic at the ankles and wrists. The bug didn't go anywhere but my hands and face. That was bad enough.
I threw out my mattress and - having no money to replace it - started sleeping in the reclining
chair. This helped, but I still got bitten up a lot.
1100 N LaSalle had bedbugs as late as June of 2010.

I can't believe they are still LYING! When will it end?? I just saw a guy fruitlessly drying his clothes as per your instruction because he has bedbugs. I remember having to that pointless mumbo jumbo. Poor guy.

I lived here fall 2008-fall 2009. Near the end of my lease, I was getting 20/30 bites a NIGHT, and was told by the pest control company that inspected my unit with the dog that there was no sign of bed bugs in my unit. Having never dealt with bedbugs before, on top of the fact that I had just bought a brand new mattress, I thought I was getting tore up by mosquitos or spiders and therefore did not dispute this.
I moved out and have since discovered that at least four bugs followed me to my new
apartment and now my new landlord is stuck paying for this nightmare that was not taken care of correctly at 1100 n lasalle.
i was told before i moved in that management had eradicated all bug problems (generic bug.. i did not even think to ask of bed bugs specifically because... well why in the world WOULD i, having never dealt with them before?) a long time ago and there was no knowledge of any bug problems in the building.
i feel lied to, not to mention absolutely DISGUSTED with the way this awful problem has been handled (or NOT handled, actually).

Wilmette Real Estate management is CONTINUALLY spraying, treating, and eliminating any bugs that are REPORTED.
Tenants NEED TO REPORT TO MANAGEMENT any problems in their apartments; they will be immediately addressed, as we have been doing right along.
It's too bad some people harbor "grudges" against the building management, and don't report problems in their apartments. We can't help someone who WON'T HELP THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All bedbugs have been eliminated at 1100 N. LaSalle. A-Alert pest control company has eliminated all bugs in affected apartments.
Management is inspecting, and continually treating with residual spray to prevent the spread of any bugs that may come in the future.

Appreciate managements agressive approach to this problem, but it is absurd that they are requesting the removal of this entry. People have the right to know the history of the building. Would you lie if a prospective tennant asked if there were ever bed bugs? Would you proactively mention there was a problem before someone signed a lease? This is a problem that affects everyone. Spend less time trying to hide it and more time petitioning the city health department for a city wide solution. May
be you got rid of them, and kudos if you did, but it only takes one person to bring them back in.

It's not slander when it's the truth. Bed bugs are at this location. The building is infested with them.

On August 19, 2009 A-Alert pest control will bring in a canine team to inspect all apartments in the building, in order to prevent the spread of any bugs that may appear. If any bugs are found at the time of inspection, those apartments will be professionally treated immediately.
