I have been getting bitten since I moved in I am allergic to bug bites and have been to the hospital once already for an infection that was casued from one of the bites i woke up at 3:30 in the morning last night and found a fully grown bug!!
Alex was trying to blame me for it as well ive been there for 7 months now and I asked prior to moving in if there was ever a reported infestation he said no. I will get this resolved!

I found bed bugs in my apartment at Burton. I had to throw away everything.. All my furniture and my bed. When my parents and I were moving everything out we found at least 5 live bugs (babies and full grown) and then when I went in to hand in my keys, Alex told me that Canadian Pest control checked my apartment and there were no signs of bugs.. Well the pest control are the ones who told me the place was clear after extermination and I found live bugs the DAY I moved back in and SHOWED alex the
bug and then the day I handed in my keys he implied I had brought the bug he saw from somewhere else. Like I WANTED to move. Like I WANTED to throw away everything I owned. Like I WANTED to give away my damage deposit.
What a ridiculous experience.

Ha ha Alex!
This place is crawling with bedbugs and you know it. No treatment has been done.

The apt. of the writer above was checked immediately by Canadian Pest Control, neither signs of bed bugs were find or traced. The letter given out to tenants should provide general character of knowledge and precautions to be considered when taking/ bringing possessions from/ to different places. I hope this will help.

At approximately 1 am this morning I found a fully grown bed bug crawling on my couch.
A few days ago the building caretaker circulated the following notice to each apartment:
Dear Tenants of Burton Manor:
