bedbugs infestation on 05/07/2010
Didn't notice the bites till later.The infestation began in my roommates room and i guess months later had spread to the entire apt. Even the kitchen. Seems like my roommate did not know that his bites and itchiness was due to bedbugs. Until it had reached my room ,i noticed and asked a friend who told me that those were most def. bedbug bites. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, guess bedbugs always bit in three's.I reported it to 311 who told me that it was my landlords job to pay for exterm

ination. I mentioned it and she did nothing. As a result i paid from my own pocket for an exterminating company to come in and blast those F*** er's.It took them 3 visits and multiple visits to the laundry to finally tackle those pests. They are so difficult to kill. I had to fill up cracks,throw ,steam, chemical the hell out of my apt. I have not seen or been bitten recently, HOWEVER now ive noticed my neighbors throwing things out. I called 311 again to file a complaint and still nothing.Even told my landlord,she did nothing. The issue that fears me is that my neighbors are from a foreign country and they might either 1 be too embarrassed to mention something or 2nd they just dont know what kind of bugs these are. Cleaning products cant kill them,you have to kill the eggs and make the adults unable to reproduce. I beleive the bed bugs have infested other apts in my building as well as buildings on my block.
