Found an infestation in our apartment last month. Saw the report on this website posted this past winter, so my roommates and I were concerned that bedbugs were potentially elsewhere in the building (esp b/c there was no clear infestation in our unit, they were sort of just on the wall in a room). We demanded the exterminator inspect other apartments around us, and discovered that several other units had infestations (including what seems to be a major one right above us).
We've been trying
to inform other tenants so they can, at minimum, be alert if not get inspected. The building clearly has an issue and the super is not notifying tenants of the problem.
Additionally, when our super first came to our apartment to inspect the bugs we had found, he told us that we were the first in the building to ever have this problem--CLEARLY a lie as management informed us of a report this past year (AND there is a posting on this site!). It's alarming how little communication there is around what seems to be a huge problem. We have thousands of dollars worth of dry cleaning bills and cannot afford to have bedbugs come back to our apartment.
Very upset with the way management and our super has been handling this. Don't see how they are going to rid the building of the problem if they just keep avoiding it. Traumatizing experience.
