I remember as a child my mom would say "sleep tight dont let the bed bugs bite"; but I never really knew that bed bugs existed. I recently moved into my apartment and was waking up to a few bite marks here and there.

On 11/5 Orkin was scheduled to come to my unit. The preperation process was dreadful and tedious. I asked for accomodations but was refused. Come to find out the bed bug problem in my apartment complex has a big bed bug problem. I cant believe the manager tried to insinuate I had brought them in. This is a so-called upscale complex. Ha!
