THE MANAGEMENT OF THE KRUPA AT SOME POINT ALLOWED A LADY WHO LIVES ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THIS ESTABLISHMENT TO MOVE INTO THE BUILDING WITH THE AIDE OF A SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY. SINCE THIS TIME THE INDIVIDUAL HAS BROUGHT TONS OF HORDED GARBAGE INTO HER ROOM WHICH HAS, OR AT LEAST SEEMS TO BE A MAJOR CAUSE OF THE BUILDING BECOMING INFESTED WITH BED BUS AND COCK ROACHES ETC. NOW THE WHOLE BUILDING IS SUFFERING AS A RESULT.SUBSEQUENTLY THIS LADY WILL NOT ALLOW THE EXTERMINATOR INTO HER DOMICILE,AND
IS BEING PROTECTED UNDER THE ADA ACT BY HER SOCIAL WORKER WHICH HAS MADE THE RESIDENTS WHO PERMINITLY RESIDE HERE TO ENDURE LIVING HELL! I AM PRESENTLY FIGHTING A MAJOR ILLNESS WHERE I RECENTLY UNDERWENT EXTENSIVE TREATMENT WITH ALPHA INTERFERONS AND RIBVIRON FOR CHRONIC HEP-C. I DID OK BUT THE VIRUS RETURNED[PERHAPS BECAUSE OF BEING BITEN BY THESE BLOOD SUCKING BUGS!I AM EXTREMELY ANGRY AND AM EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF LITIGATION WITH THE SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY TO GET THIS LADY REMOVED FROM THIS ADDRESS 700 JONES. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THIS HOTEL IS NOT IN THE TENDERLOIN,BUT RATHER NOB HILL AND CATERS TO NUMEROUS EUROPEAN TRAVELRS. MANY OF THESE TRAVELERS MOVE RAPIDLY OUT OF THE HOTEL AFTER BEING SUBJECTED TO THESE BITING BED BUGS FOR MERELY ONE NIGHT.WHY SHOULD THE MASSES SUFFER BECAUSE OF THE ACTION OF ONE.SHOULDN'T IT BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND? AT ANY RATE I AM GOING AFTER WHO EVER AIDED AND ABBETTED

The apartment manager of this building has gone above and beyond to rid the apartments of bed bugs. There were 6 affected apartments and an expensive and thorough heat treatment was done to over 9 apartments to prevent any further infestation. I live on the 5th floor of this building and fortunately my apartment and my neighbors' were not at all affected. The infestation may have been underestimated by the management group and it did take some time to get through the red tape and fund this ex
tremely costly. but effective heat treatment procedure. However as soon as it was cleared, our resident manager immediately got the work done and even treated apartments around the infested ones to ensure that the bed bugs were completely exterminated.
The incident is unfortunate for all in the building. Even the manager's apartment was effected! I am grateful that this incident is over and request that my building be removed from this registry!

We\'d got the bed bugs!
I fear that there are renters in this apartment building that might have bed bugs but not know. With no written warning notice given to ALL tendencies of this building, which informs them of the bed bugs infestation; as well as, educates ALL how to hopefully prevent the spread of these nuisances and an example of bed bugs\' bite(s).
Hearing the news from a concern neighbor. Around the beginning of July, whom informed me of the fifth floor back apartments, reporting
an infestation of bed bugs. I was also told about the time consuming work in preparation of treatment that did not scale back the number of bugs escaping from \"ground zero\'s apartment\". Even-though, I was not thrilled of the news, I became a very concern neighbors and a little supporting group formed.
I have over ten bite mark areas to this post, which are very itchy leaving a red dot the size of an inch in circumferences on the skin bite area. Last week, while at a conference my left arm broke out in hives, which turned into one large big hive from fingers to elbow. Out of Benadryl, I spent a good hour in the bathroom running cold water on the burning blistered area,in which I missed a session of the conference.
Disappointed, with the situation but mostly frustrated with the time response of treatment from this building\'s management. Even-though, I do understand being sick and in the hospital does provide a valid case but when the operate is not available than who is the number two?
Waiting 72 hours before treatment I can understand and follow these rules but twelve days before treatment... I\'m getting a bit bit bit more ornery.
\"If you wipe your messy hands on a clean towel, you wont get your hands clean; as well as, the next person who uses that towel will end up with your mess.\" SOAP-N-WATER!
There are seven apartments infested with bed bugs at this address, that I know of. Two apartments located on the fifth floor renters have moved out because of this mess, while the rest pack their belonging in black trash bags and try to live their lives within boxes and bags. I am not sure if Meridian Management Group, of San Francisco will accept new applications for renting the two vacant apartments of the fifth floor out. But I so, concernedly, hope not to find, new neighbors until this infestation is resolved.
I feel, this unfortunate situation will keep spreading floor to floor taking over two or three new apartments each month; until the whole back apartments are infested. I feel/think this was because it took the bed bugs one month to spread from the fifth floor to my apartment on the forth floor. I am currently working with the manager of the building in scheduling building maintenance to repair \"fill in\" all cracks, holes, floorboard gabs and mice holes too. I want to believe that the apartment I\'m renting will be taken care of and I hate bug bug bugging for an answer.
But actions are stronger than words at this residences, sadly. My only wishes are for the city of San Francisco Public Health Dept. and the owner/Meridian Management Group some how work together in putting an end to the bed bugs infestation at this address; as well as, control the spread of bed bugs in this region.
IT\'S SIMPLE:Bed bugs suck!
