Long Term Tenant on 09/09/2010
There was severe and prolonged infestation on the 13th floor of Section 5 which spread throughout many apartments throughout Section 5.
It is an older rental building, built in 1929, with a history of problems with water bugs, roaches and mice. A few years back, there were even rats in the basement. There are a lot of cracks in the walls which are breeding grounds for bugs and makes this building especially vulnerable.
Management has taken a proactive approach to the bed bug infestatio
n. All apartments in Section 5 have been inspected with bug sniffing dogs, chemical sprays and protective mattress covers provided. The problems seem to now be under control.
While there is no hysteria, there are plenty of tenant complaints, and we have seen frequent moving trucks in front of the building lately.
