500 Duplex Ave
Toronto, ON M4R

Found 5 reports:

No Bedbugs, but so many other problems that its not even funny. Broken elevators, orange water, peeling plaster, mold in communal hallways, stolen belongings from underground parking, rude and disrespectful management, disgusting pool (ceiling crumbling into water), broken locks to main entrance and underground parking, no power to entire unit for multiple days, leaking sinks and countertops, flaking plaster on walls and ceiling of unit, . . . the list could go on. These are all thing I have had

to deal with over the past two years living in this building. If it wasn't for the location and unit size I would have moved out long before now. On their own these things aren't so bad, but try dealing with them all on a regular/ daily basis. This week from Thursday through until 9pm Saturday there was only one elevator working in a building with a few thousand tenants and over 35 floors (unbearable). Advice, do your research and save yourself the headache. Don't move here.

Been living @ 500 Duplex for a year and a half. We took over a lease from a friend of mine who had been living there for one year prior.
Over the course of 2.5 years, no bedbuds or any reports of bedbugs from my neighbors.

well I've been at 500 Duplex avenue for 6 years never ever came across bed bugs that's for sure. Most residents here are long term and no one has ever spoke of this.

500 Duplex is now bed bug free!! It took four treatments, we spent a fortune on bed covers, Diatomaceous earth, a new vacuum, laundry, ect... but it's over. We have been officially bed bug free for over 10 months. Although management was reluctant at first, they paid for all treatments.

In April 2009, we moved into 500 Duplex Ave, Apt. 210. We were there approximately 3 weeks when I started noticing small red bites on my hands. At first I thought they were spider bites from the cottage we usually go to on the weekends so I ignored them. Then I started to get more bites on my arms and feet. I soon figured out that we had bed bugs when it started affecting the other occupants.
We contacted our landlord and told them the problem. At first they wanted to help, but apparently the p

roperty management company was unwilling to pay.
When they told us this we were furious and wrote them a detailed email citing the City of Toronto Health Act which states that all costs incurred for the treatment of bed bugs is the responsibility of property management. They paid.
So far we have had two unsuccessful treatments with more to come.

If you are in the same situation, I would suggest using diatomaceous earth in conjunction with the pest control treatments. We've found it was the only thing that kept them away in between treatments.

The fight continues!
