We moved on the 13th floor in tower 3 of Ocean Towers - can't remember which apt (it was all too traumatic for me, I've blocked it out) in September 2010. The second morning we were there, I woke up to see a bedbug crawling up the living room wall. I immediately went to tell the super and they said someone was coming to spray another apartment the next day, so they'd come to do ours. Thankfully we didn't have much unpacked, and we hadn't went to buy furniture yet, all we had in the apartment
was boxes, bags, a bed, and a tv and stand, and we immediately started apartment hunting - as far away from downtown as possible! Within the next two nights I was covered with bites, and I was pretty much obsessed with vacuuming. The guy from the pest control company came to spray once a week, and I vacuumed at least three times a day, but I was still seeing new bites every single morning. By the 15th, we had a new apartment lined up, so I started to unpack every single box, and repack to make sure no bugs were in them and I sealed up every single crevice with tape, so nothing could get in. Also, I washed every single article of clothing and linen and immediately put in double garbage bags hot out of the dryer and tied them up. By the last week I wasn't getting any new bites, but I was sure it was only a matter of time before we were infested again. I read in an article that if you can actually see the bedbugs you have a major infestation, because they tend to stay out of the light, and in the baseboards, etc, until night fall - well, I saw them everywhere, living room, hallway, kitchen (crawling across the counter). AND to make the best of it, the main manager for the buildings tried to blame us for bringing them with us - yet, the pest guy had already been scheduled to spray other apts, so obviously, we weren't the only ones. My time in Ocean Towers was a NIGHTMARE! And I suggest to anyone who is thinking of moving in here to RUN! RUN FAR AWAY! Unless of course you don't mind being terrorized by bugs that multiply exponentially. We left our bed, and the tv stand, as well as the new vacuum cleaner we bought when we moved in - I couldn't stand the thought of bringing anything that I couldn't tie up in bags, or seal up in boxes. Again, Ocean Towers was a NIGHTMARE experience - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIVE HERE!
