My first BB infestation was November 2008, my second was March 2009, my third was July 2009. Each time it was a horrific experience.

But this third time, the BB's had burrowed into the bed encasement on the box spring, I had once again spent over a $1000 on cleaning up/laundry and new encasements and the funiture cups, not including extermination, the landlord paid for that. I have been in complete contact with my managemnt company and they have been helpful in getting an extermintor there. But this time it was a new company and they had a whole procedure as to pack everything up and have two treaments over a three week period, I optted not to live there at that time - I have been displaced for a 3 weeks. I decided to move back in days after the exterminator came - with in hours my dog and my boyfriends ended up having reactions to the chemical they used, they both ended up in the ER. This whole experience has been a complete nightmare. I have asked the Owner of the building for some reiembersement of my cleaning expenses of over $700. I have not heard back from him, it has been weeks and now I believe I have to seek leagle representation to get my money back and now I am thinking of moving to Westchester. UUG! Something has to be done
