Yep- definitely bed bugs. Started getting bites, took them a little over two or three weeks to fix. Worst part is- they never put up any kind of notice or told the other tenants to be extra careful about tracking them into their places.. which is especially irritating because they make you sign in the lease that if you get bed bugs it's your fault (you must have tracked them in or did something to cause them and even if you didn't it's still your fault because you failed to take proper preventi
on measures). How are you supposed to prevent a problem you don't know exists? You also have to sign acknowledging that the premises were bed-bug free on the date of signing, but they don't show you any kind of proof. My place had bed bugs for a month, and there was a For Rent sign out front for the entire time. BEWARE.

Hell yeah! 1610 N Normandie Blvd does have bed bugs!!! It has been a good couple of months trying to get rid of a bed bug plague here. We had to throw away our mattress and our bed frame, they were more than officially infested. Checking the place, we have realized that the bugs are hiding behind wall pipes, power outlets and wall frames (they like fine art). The exterminator came a few weeks ago, steamed around, but the bugs are still here. In general, the maintenance of the building is pretty

I couldn't figure out where all the mesquito bites were coming from. To my horror, they are not mesquitos, this place is infested with bed bugs and roaches.
I've tried everything I can buy, now I'm throwing everything out that can't fit into HOT wash machine.
Management will NOT do anything about it. But they don't fix anything here.

march 1st 2010. i left this apartment because i would be getting bit by a lot of bed bugs. i washed all my clothes and blankets etc but some how i still kept getting these pest. then i notified the landlord and she called the pest control. we scheduled for the pest control etc. once the pest control came they sprayed the room. so i didnt go back to my place for about 12 hours. next thing you know they didnt do a good job. it was just roach killing substance they sprayed. so i spoke to the land l
ord again and she stated that they treated my unit for bed bus. that was a lie. people that live in that building dont care because they are paying low amount of rent because they've been living there for a long period of time. the land lord and i scheduled for another appointment for bed bug control. then they came the second. once i cleaned my unit and washed everything the bed bugs still came. remember this people when the landlord said that they paid for the bed bug fumigation ask them to show u a receipt. i found out from a pest control personal that a bed bug treatment takes up to 3 to 4 hours and they dont just spray. they have to inspect the whole unit from top to bottom and inside out such as clothes blanket etc. if your landlord is saying that they paid 600 to 1000 for bed bug treatment its a lie because all they did was infest it more and sprayed cockroach killer so that u could just leave. just get a professional to get rid of your bed bug problems. call them yourself and show that receipt to your landlord and tell them that u will be deducting the amount u paid for the pest control on the next payment of rent.

i got bed bugs in my apartment so i moved out of the building, there had been many reports throughout the building of the bugs, the guy down the hall from me had them too and he said that the pest control guys that our landlord used couldn't get rid of them. he said he and his family had to wash everything ever two weeks to make the place livable. some pest control companies (like the one i used) have bed bug sniffing dogs that can coe in and sniff a place before u rent it (usually the landlord
will even pay for the service) and i highly suggest it before moving in anywhere.
