concerned neighbor on 07/24/2010
More than one apartment was infested in 2009 - 2010 and possibly before that. As far as I know, management was very fast to respond and did all that they could to eliminate the problem. The PCO they employed didn't seem to have a handle on the problem which may have led to the spread of the situation to other units. Management was quick to act and is willing to do whatever it takes at whatever the cost. It's better to live in a building with responsible management becasue these bugs are in every
building in the city. Just be sure to ask about the history of the apartment you're looking at and the surrounding apartments because as mentioned, the regular PCO doesn't seem effective in preventing spread, just dealing with one apartment at a time.
