Complained to landlord about bedbugs. He called professional exterminator. Exterminatior gave me list of things to do to prepare for treatment which I did. Exterminator treated apt. Landlord caulked all open wall/floor joints, also around casings and moldings. Exterminator performed follow-up treatment. Landlord advise me to infomr him immediatley if I see any more bedbugs. Havent had bedbugs since.

On 4/27/10 it all began. Bedbugs everywhere in apartment building in co-op city mulitple dwelling units. Riverbay charges residents for extermination using unadequate exterminating companies. Colonel of Mount Vernon sprays twice but bedbugs remain in apartment. Appointments scheduled for return visits from Colonel this past Friday & Saturday but no one bothers to call or show up. Already lost a thousand dollars in throwing furniture away, cleaning laundry & dry cleaners, buying detergents,
bug sprays, plastic bags etc. Sealed bedrooms with duct tape. Found two bedbugs crawling in bed after exterminators completed job. Bites in face very painful & am in route to emergency room. Slept on terrace last night, anxiety very high! Riverbay closed for weekend. Weekend supervisors have no knowledge regarding outside exterminators. Was told I have to wait for Tuesday when office opens. Bedbugs still in apartment as I write these words. God help us all!
Numerous bedbugs were found within the building apartment. The surrounding neighbor's apartment also have bedbugs. There are countless bed bug bites and they are extremely uncomfortable. Swelling, itchiness, and reddening of the skin are only three out of the many symptoms first experienced after being bitten. Sofas, mattresses, furniture, and headboards were all thrown away. However, bed bugs continue to find their way back into the apt. Bed bugs have caused many sleepless nights and constant w
orry since the day they first bit. Simply said, I hate bed bugs!
Bites were seen and unexplained as it was the winter and there was no contact with mosquitos. A few months passed and the bites continued. After reading an ad for a bed bug encasement and killing a bug after it had fed, I was able to identify the problem and looked for infestation. Bed bugs in bed frame, mattress, headboard, futons, baby playpen and clothing. Mattresses seen outside in the trash may indicate that others have also had infestations in the building. Neighbor has seen one or tw
o and treated with a spray. Organic spray killer has not worked and I am looking into a professional exterminator at this time.
