They are back, if in fact, they ever left. It doesn't help when other tenants in the building have them and don't tell the landlord. To live next door to someone who cares little about anyone other than themselves is also a no win-win situation.
This is a nightmare and to know the person(s) responsible for these critters pays less rent than I do is maddening. Nothing like rewarding bad behaviour.
If you live close to someone who has nothing but clutter in their residence this is a p
erfect breeding/hiding place for bedbugs.
The saddest part is when the landlord knows from where they are coming but feel sorry for the individual worried about where they would go. Therefore they are not evicted.
It seems no one is sorry for me and the rent I pay to live in a war zone where sleep is never restful.
I don't think it is normal for a person so inspect their bedroom for fifteen minutes before they go to bed and then still lay there waiting for the next attack and the feeling of something crawling up their body. It's embarassing to have these welts on your body.
They are back and in full force. They seem to stem from the bathroom. The reign of terror continues. Why would I want to tell the landlord...they will only blame the tenant once again...getting tired of that game for sure?! It is now Oct/2010. I still paid full rent when I was forced into a hotel the last time they sprayed at my expense. Frankly, I don't have that kind of money.

Capital Health was called in for an inspection October 3, 2008 but I have been suffering for months. Pretty sad when you have to use makeup to cover bug bites to go to work...by the way that doesn't work anyway. Don't believe the stories of how they don't hurt when they bite because it's all bull. It's a pschological terror to live for months on end with these things especially when someone else in the building didn't report it initially. Hello, welcome to my neighborhood!
