Moved in around March 2009. Started noticing bites a month or two later. Landlord knows about situation and has allowed us to terminate our lease. Hopefully he will be able to remove them (and the rats) once we are out. The only reason I am posting this is because bed bugs are a horrible thing to live with and if this happening in many places in the neighborhood something should be done about it. I hope this is the only case and things do not spread. I am also worried about taking them with me.
One thing we did learn was to place the feet of our beds in bowls of water. This (mostly) keeps the bugs from getting to you at night as they do not like water and typically do not actually live in your bed. I recommend it if you have tried everything else.
Good luck fellow afflicted.
