From personal experience and talking to neighbors in the building, this building has had a consistent bedbug problem for well over a decade.
Some apartments have seen major infestations that take multiple eradication attempts and thousands of dollars to even make a dent in. Others get a few bedbugs here and there every few years.
The landlord refuses to fix the problem with the entire building and instead sends his contracted exterminator in to fix the problems, which he never does.

In May of 2009, we had what was described by the CPO as the worst residential infestation he has ever seen. It took us 6 months worth of repeat vists, countless loads of laundry, protective covers, and vigilance. I could go on, about everything we did to get rid of those evil blood suckers, but if you're here you know how hard, and all consuming an infestation can be. We took all the protective measures available to ensure that they were gone for good. The landlord is very nice, but as stated
by the other poster, he doesn't understand the magnitude of the problem.
Today, November 14th, 2011, We just had our apt. treated again, because we have a new infestation. So far, we have to dispose of our sectional couch in the living room as it is the main source of the infestation. It begins.... I can't even explain, how much I am dreading going through this process again. What a nightmare.

There have been bed bugs in this building since at least 2003. Landlord is very nice, but doesn't get magnitude of the problem and won't treat the entire building.
