Lived at 180 Macnab from August 2011 to November 2012.
Was treated for bed bugs on two occasions.
Still had activity. Got the hell out.
If the superintendent gave a rat's ass, it would have been a great apartment to stay in. Too bad.

I came from a bed bug free home. I started noticing bites on my legs a couples of weeks after moving in. I thought it was just mosquito bites, and thought nothing of it until I actually found a bed bug hiding in one of my bags on the floor. I let the landlord know. He told me my apartment was the only unit with bed bugs. He got someone to come in and spray within a week and had a second spray done 2 weeks later. It seemed like it helped.
...Until they came back. About 5 or 6 months after the
last time the apartment was sprayed, I noticed the bed bugs were back. And with a vengeance! I called the landlord and it took him 2 weeks to get back to me and another 2 weeks to get someone in to spray the apartment. I have never seen so many bed bugs in my life! My couches were absolutely INFESTED! It then took almost another month to get the apartment sprayed the second time. I can't say for sure if they are gone. I have what appears to be 2 bite marks on my leg, but I am really hoping it is something else. This has been a terrible experience. Had I seen this website before I moved in, I would have not taken this place. The landlord told me prior to signing anything that there was no issues with bed bugs in the building. I am planning on moving out as soon as possible, and I have to throw out so much of my furniture so I don't bring anything to my next place. So costly.
I highly recommend to anyone who is considering to move here to look elsewhere. It's not worth the hassle. The building is horrendous!
(First post 7/24/2011) After a year and a half, I am starting to see them again. No treatments since the first, but I guess they are looking for refuge from all the other apartments getting the so called pest control. I am finding most of them coming from the bathroom.
Glad I am leaving this building and its useless lazy ass super. If he were more attentive and actually cleaned once and awhile maybe it would not be such an issue and the stairwell's would not be covered in garbage and smell of
I wonder how many times his apartment is sprayed every year? More than everyone elses I suspect.
Since I am leaving, a good pissing on his door may help him understand everyone's plight.
Oh, and he can clean up the bedbug shit infested crap I leave behind, the useless f'n git shmeghead.
It is terrible building and we found beg bugs from when we just moved in. We got four treatments and every time we had to do lots of preparation work, it was really time consuming and money costing. But those treatments do not work at all!!! I believe the whole building was already infested.

Do not be embarrassed about this problem hey for all you know your neighbor has them and if they don't remember you are not alone i got BB's from 33 Robinson all the good "financially independent" from 180 have re-located to 33 Robinson and have brought the semi vampires with them don't believe me look at our donation bin :P
i wish you all luck i know its hard i nearly went crazy when i found them. the landlord said we were the only ones. friday we got sprayed monday morning we found 5. it was our 3rd treatment last week in our laundry area
we found dozens of BB's around the washer and dryer i freaked out and rang out the manager i have a sick feeling they are living below either it was a cat bed. or that apartment is infested i lost my boyfriend and my grand kids can't come around
I have been living here for a year and a half. When I just discovered bedbugs about 6 months ago, they were throughout my apartment. I called to get my place sprayed, i had it done twice, I just recently had it sprayed 2 weeks ago AGAIN. Its frustrating and annoying. Its very time consuming to prepare your place to get sprayed and also very expensive to wash all your clothes and linen. The landlord will not do anything but get each individual apartment sprayed when requested. In order for the be
dbugs to get under control they need to spray everyones place and the building itself at the same time, but they refuse to do it!! I just bought a new couch 6 months ago and now its destroyed! Its frustrating to think that even if I move out of here i may accidentally bring them with me! So I have to toss all my furniture and start over. The rent is cheap to live here, but TRUST me don't move in, you pay for what you get! The landlord never once told me they had a bedbug problem. So do yourself a favour and keep looking for a new place....
Moved in summer of 2010 and was hit with bedbugs within 2 months. Found about a dozen of the little bloodsuckers in bedroom, but nowhere else in apt. Management wanted to keep it low key, trying to speak in hushed tones about it and failing to inform me or other new tenants of the issue. But pest control (I cannot remember who) was called in about 3 days later. I have not had an issue since, but I cannot say for sure the problem has been eradicated from the rest of the building.
Following a few
easy steps does help though. Clean more frequently. Don't sweep, vacuum everything! (I mean everything! Bed, dresser, baseboards, every crook, crack and cranny!) Wrap your bed and pillows up. Keep bed away from walls. Almost as important as sealing your bed is a) vaseline coated dishes under the frame casters or bed posts and b) two sided tape around the box spring and mattress.
The entire building at 180 MacNab St. S. L8P 3C6 is infested with bedbugs. The superintendent has individual apartments treated when tenants request treatment but the treatments have so far been unsuccessful.
The landlord assumes no responsibility for paying for bedbug treatment beyond the spraying. The landlord does not disclose the bedbug problem to new tenants.
