The landlord of 106 Pinehurst has listed for rent apartment C22, which had live bedbugs as recently as March 2021 right before the tenant moved out because she couldn't take it anymore after 6 months of bugs. The landlord is also planning to renovate and rent some of the other apartments that have had bed bugs, despite the fact that apartments that are currently occupied continue to see live bugs (as recently as August 18).

The bed bug infestation in the C tower of the 106 Pinehurst Avenue has continued for 11 months. The problem was discovered by a tenant on 9/15/20. It spread from the first floor to the 6th floor, affecting 14 (of 30) apartments in the C tower. Five tenants have moved out. Three more are scheduled to move in September/October. Bugs have been seen by one or more apartments consistently throughout the past 11 months. Some apartments have been treated with pesticides 8 or more times, yet continue to

see bugs. Although the building was sold in May and the new landlord did a little more to try to resolve the issue by focusing on the source apartment, it has not eliminated the bed bugs, nor has he even eliminated the problems with mice. The bed bugs continue to travel in the walls/electrical/plumbing in search of human hosts. The landlord is gut renovating empty apartments, and plans to rent them, including the one directly above the source apartment.

The infestation at 106 Pinehurst Avenue continues to spread throughout the C tower of the building. Since the last report on this site, tenants in apartments treated multiple times have continued to see bed bugs and/or be bitten. In addition, two previously unaffected apartments are now infested. To date, a total of 13 of 30 apartments in the C tower have been infested and there may be more that I am unaware of.

In mid-September, a tenant in the C section of the building saw a bedbug in her apartment, immediately contacted management. Inspections of surrounding apartments revealed a long-term major infestation in the apartment below and a single bug in the apartment above. Treatments were set up for 3 apartments. Since that time, 8 other apartments (that we know of--possibly more) have found bugs/been bitten. This is one-third of the units in this section. Despite as many as 5 treatments in surrounding

apartments and perhaps 10 in the source apartment, we have seen bugs/been bitten as recently as the last few days of January 2021. Finally, after HPD got involved, 4 units have been caulked to try to seal up points of entry. HPD inspected after complaints in December and January. HPD issued numerous violations, caulking occurred (4 months after first sightings) and the the landlord is once again having the affected/surrounding units chemically treated. The bugs are in the walls and travel from apartment to apartment, especially after any one apartment has been treated. Affected units are on floors 1 through 6 in the C section, which abuts the B section's 3 and 4 lines, so they aren't safe either. Today is February 4, 2021. Next treatments must occur before March 1.
