Two months ago new people moved in to an apartment accross the hall from me. Two days later they moved out complaining about bed bugs.
The landlord sent a notice with instructions on how to avoid them and said that terminex was to come and treat the building.
No one came to treat the building for bed bugs.
A couple of weeks later I found that my bed was now infested with bed bugs. I am on the top 3rd floor of the building. They must
have worked their way up. The building has experienced alot of turnover over the last couple of years, so I attribute it to that, but one can never be for sure. I have since bleached all the areas where I found them and put down boric acid all around in the corners.
I found a lawn and garden pesticide that has a chemical to kill them. I am going to use that next.
Forget the landlord - he is cheap and wont spend the money. I could pay someone to do my room but its moot if the whole building isnt treated.
So I am going to have an ongoing battle with these things.
