I'd send the previous report author a check but the bedbugs carried off my check book and wallet while I scratched!

5861 Fresh Pond Road, Floor 1, FrontRoom. This is a privately owned two floor house where the landlord/owner rents out rooms to single men on the first floor. The landlord/owner seems to rent to anyone who shows up and is busy at his job all the time so he really doesnt manage the house. This is good if the renters are somewhat clean but this is bad if the renters refuse to shower or to clean up the place.
There are roaches in the kitchen, bathroom and my room. One renters said he found a bed

bug in his room (in the back of house). And he said someone on the subway train saw a bed bug crawling on his clothes and pointed-out the bug to him.
Well for the past few weeks I have been getting what seemed like red swollen bites over my body and itching etc. I suspected a spider biting me at night but wasnt sure. I keep a clean room so I did not suspect bed bugs but then finally last night I caught my first bed bug biting me on my back. I found another bed bug crawling on the wall next to my bed.
Also, now that I think back in time, twice I saw a small bug crawling on my room ceiling late at night which I thought was a small roach but it didnt really look like a roach so I now think they might have been a bed bugs.
I rent one of the four rooms for rent at this house and two of the guys here are dirty and I suspect one or both of them is growing roaches and bud bugs in their rooms--so be warned!
I called 311 and wanted to report it so that the next guy who moves in here doesnt get cheated and abused like I did! but they said I have to try to work it out with landlord first.
Thank you people for this website! I wish I had money to give you but that was the last straw and now I am going to move with no money and no place to go. Somehow it doesnt seem right that we all pay our taxes and our government cant help me but that private citizens have to spend their time and money to do the governments job. This is a public health issue.
