My boyfriend and I have lived here since February 2012. We went for holidays from mid August to early September, then I started to get bitten. We thought it might be fleas from our cat, but one morning we checked our bed and lo and behold, we were infested (and still are).
We've washed all our bedding, sprayed the box spring, mattress, and wood frame with some bed bug spray and got encasements for the box spring and mattress but I still have got bitten. We did this Wednesday and it's Friday
now (the long Thanksgiving weekend).
I've done some research. It is the landlord's responsibility to get rid of the bedbugs. We contacted the landlords and the pest control guy who works for the building owners can't come in until Tuesday. I want this taken care of ASAP!! I am not sure if that's possible or not. I don't know if the landlords will reimburse us if we got an exterminator in here that doesn't work for the building owners. I am so stressed out. I sat on the floor crying and researching bed bug crap for an hour or so.
