I moved in March of 2011 and moved out December 2011. Cockroaches were a problem from day one. The suite had been professionally baited with cockroach poison. It did help alot, and I took "extreme" measures to make my suite and air tight and free on nooks and crannies with many tubes of caulking. However, I was never free of cockroaches. They were coming in through the walls from light fixtures, and through the floor to drywall joints. At least cockroaches aren't interested in eating huma
I found a bed bug on a jacket by my hall door in October. I informed the property manager. November 1st, I found a bed bug on my bed and a bite on my back. I gave my notice 3 days later. The whole building needs to be treated. A near impossible task. The building is old and pests are in the walls. These nasty bugs come back, they nest in inconspicuous areas. They will re-infest from a neighbouring suite.
I noticed the bites before I clued into what was going on.
Last night I was lying in bed playing games on my phone and I noticed a bulbous bug running away from me.
I clued in and caught it in a jar and double checked, sure enough it's a bedbug.
I'm in suite 210 I'm bringing the bug to the landlord today.

We had bed bugs when we first moved in March 09 but bought the expensive mattress/box spring covers and cleaned EVERYTHING and haven't had a problem since. There's still a problem in the building though.

Hey, I just saw an ad for shared accommodation at this location on
vancouver craigslist. Can anyone tell me if this problem has been
rectified or if it still persists? If I'm not mistaken the building has
been renovated recently. I don't want to take the chance so I'd
appreciate any information anyone has to offer.
you can contact me at:

I had them too, plus cockroaches and many others at the end of 2007 before I moved. Landlord told us he'd take care of it after we moved, but I know from the current residents that he didn't.

This place has had bedbug problems since Dec 2006. The entire building's been sprayed a couple of times now, but to no avail. My suite is STILL infested. It's a living hell.
