I moved into 383 Sherbourne about 2 1/2 years ago. When I viewed the apartment (I was being rushed by the Superintendent Carol's son and really didn't scrutinize as much as I would have liked) I noticed nothing except that the bathroom was the old-fashioned deep kind. The apartment was a ratty, disgusting dump, with gouges and scars all over the hardwood floor and filth on the otherwise white walls. They were asking $725 per month so I accepted it.
Almost immediately after moving in the roach
infestation was apparent. There were swarms of roaches everywhere. The kitchen was roach central, with them literally falling off the ceiling and scurrying all over the floor. It was sickening. Two times exterminators came and the amount of dead roaches just covered the floors and kitchen counters. It was disturbing to say the least. After each spray, levels would return to normal and the swarms would be back. I lived battling them with insecticide in hand for 2 years. It was only when they FINALLY put out a few bucks for the cyclical kind of insecticide (it doesn't kill immediately and the roaches shit out enough of the chemical that the shit is eaten by other roaches and a vicious circle of infection creates genocides) for the numbers to die down to acceptable levels.
I noticed my first bed bug in the summer of 2015. A flat little bugger who looked like he was on the hunt for a meal. Subconsciously, I knew I had to get out of that filthy hellhole.I took no pleasure from that run down dump, and I think I went behind on my rent to force the change to happen. I decided to ditch most of my stuff. Please, don't rent there. The superintendent is mentally out to lunch, she takes everything personally, overreacts and thinks it's appropriate to deal with people in curt, rude and provoking ways that only causes strife and conflict, not resolutions and answers. Irv (the guy who owns the property aka The Landlord) is a decent, upstanding and generous man, but I think age is catching up with him and I'm worried Carol takes advantage of it to further let the place sink down into the shithole it's becoming. I'd like to thank all my neighbours for putting up with my drug fueled parties, the odd fight that spilled out into the hallway, and my LOUD Christian choral and Baroque music that I blared for an hour or so every day. The tenants on my floor were absolutely first-rate people. The really handsome and hardworking young guy at the opposite end of my floor came by on a couple of occasions to warn me they were seeking to crucify me. Don't rent there.

September 2010. Bad bed bug infestation. Discovered that there had already been bed bugs in the apartment when I moved in. I ended up having to move because it was so bad. The landlords sprayed a couple times but there were still a lot alive.
Landlords were helpful but allowed a gentleman to move in right after me even before the bed bugs were gone....I'm assuming that is also what happened to me when I moved in! I feel bad for the guy :(

the super was very cooperative and a pest extirminator person was called, and i was told the supposed bedbugs i found were just spiders. ooops....lol
It's the third month we've been living here and have had no bedbug encounter. Lets hope it stays that way.

1. 383 Sherbourne, Toronto, Ontario My apartment had a major infestation of bedbugs. I had to pay for an exterminator, and that didn\'t even get rid of them. Avoid if possible. (mistakenly posted on another TO address)

There are bed bugs in my apartment building. I have been bitten for about one week. The spray has been done, but bed bugs still here.

Just moved into a new place.
The previous occupant was pretty slobby and frequented the local drop ins.
Noticed a bug on the wall and confirmed that it was a bedbug.
Told landlady and she arranged for the pest people to spray.
After inspecting the bedroom i found tons of live and dead bedbugs and lots of dropping stains in corners around base moldings in closets, through out the entire apartment.
It required several sprayings.
At one point i was at work, at least 5 hours into my shift, and
i looked down onto my desk and saw a live bed bug.
I had to throw out a lot of clothes and furniture, do lots and lots of laundry.
