Found 2 reports:

The place is badly infested. The apartments have wooden floors and the walls have holes all over the place where bed bugs can hide. They can also easily travel between adjacent apartments due to the holes in the walls. They also just repaint the walls on top of old cracking paint once a person moves out. Within a few months the new paint cracks too, and the bug sit deep inside the layers of flaking paint.

When I reported the problem to API, they said I have to pay 300 bucks for the treatment

from my pocket. They said they had treated the place before I moved in so it must have been me who brought the bugs in. I said I would find an exterminator myself but then they forced me to use this retarded exterminator. I did everything the exterminator said,
1. cover my bed with a bedbug protector mattress.
2. tumble dry all my clothes and linen at high temp and them store them in plastic bags for a month.
3. vacuum regularly and not leave clothes lying around.

Bugs came back after 6 months, and the exterminator refused to treat again. I dont think he properly treated the house. Unless you get a lawyer,API dosent give a damn.

I got bed bugs in this apartment building in April 2010. The management company was awful to deal with and refused to pay until I got an attorney involved. There were at least 4 other apartments with bed bugs in the same building as well.

It took one month for the exterminator to treat completely. But, I was lucky that I only had them in my bedroom and not the rest of my apartment. It was still one of the worst experiences of my life and I would NEVER recommend living here as they do not take

these issues seriously. This is mostly student housing and the management company takes advantage of that fact.
