21 Ford St
Hamilton, ON L8N

Found 3 reports:

I moved into this building 21 Ford St also known as 136 Wellington St South on July 1 2012. It took me two months just to prepare the unit; painting,and thoroughly cleaning, before I was able to unpack any thing. As I started unpacking and hanging pictures I was greeted by a large golden colored cockroach. I immediately killed it and contacted the superintend,who in response had my unit sprayed within 72 hours,which at the time I was fairly impressed, until I came back home from the 3-4 hour tim

e waiting period for spraying. When I got home I noticed in every room that was treated ,there was a large puddle of insecticide in the middle of the floor. I have a phobia when it comes to cockroaches and bedbugs, so a friend of mine went to the U.S.A. and picked up some more insecticide. Keep in mind that in mid September the exterminator came and did his treatment. By late September I treated my unit with 3 indoor foggers and did so every 2-3 weeks, until one day in early November I started noticing dead bugs that didn't resemble a roach.I kept all the bugs that I found in my unit in an old pill bottle. When the exterminator came over he confirmed that the bugs that I had found were indeed not a roach but bedbugs. There were three of them and all dead. I was then informed that my unit would be treated within 7-9 days. I couldn't wait that long so I treated the apt. myself and did everything else that I was suppose to do such as wash all linen, clothes, drapes ect. bagged everything and placed it on my balcony, which it is still at, to this day (December4 2012). I proceeded to have talks with the exterminator that the management hired and also with both the super and the assistant super about my neighbor not following proper procedure before, during and after being sprayed. I found out what pesticide the exterminator used and he told me; PRO. B1 insecticide, which I purchased immediately. I have gone through 2, 2L bottles, which I use full strength. My last treatment so far to my unit was November 22 2012 in the morning, fortunately I haven't seen anything that looks like bedbugs or anything for that matter.The main problem is that when the exterminator treats a unit that, is all he does, that one unit, nothing else connecting to that unit is sprayed, unless the tenant has made a complaint. Also I have spoke to alot of people concerning bugs of any kind, but mostly bedbugs and cockroaches and they all say the same thing, "it's not that bad, I just kill it and or brush it off and go back to what I was doing or sleeping."I would advise anyone not to move into these apartments on Wellington St. South, there are 3 buildings owned by Gumiero Holdings and until all of the units in each and every building are properly treated, the problem will never be resolved. I'm happy to say that I've kept the bugs at bay and will be moving just after Christmas.
