Concerned Tenant on 06/19/2012
It was confirmed by an exterminator that I have bed bugs. It took a couple of weeks to complete the arduous task of going through all of my belongings and throwing things away or sealing everything in garbage bags. My apartment has been chemically treated once (on 6/4), and will receive a second chemical treatment next week (on 6/25, 3 weeks after the first one). The landlord has not told any other tenants, nor apparently has reported it. They told me NOT to label the trash I threw out with t
he word "bed bugs" on it because they said the garbage men would not pick it up, but I think they didn't want to alert the other tenants in the building. I am planning to tell my neighbors so that they can get inspected to prevent any further infestations in my or their apartments.
