Found 2 reports:

I've been living on this building since 2007 and for the most part, its been bug free. In the beginning of January 2012 I woke up one morning with some small red welts on my arms, neck and face. I didn’t know what they were, I thought they were some kind of allergic reaction and didn't think anything of it. After I kept seeing these red welts on my skin I talked with a family member about it and she suggested for me to check my bed; that it sounded like bed bug bites. When I got home I pulled

out my bed and checked the creases of my bed and what I found was more then I could imagine. From what I found, I took the bed and box spring right out on the balcony immediately and the next day I threw it out in the garbage. I don’t know how I could've gotten these bugs. I keep a clean place, I don’t sleep out and I never bring anything home from the road side. I went to inform the superintendent of my situation and ask how this could’ve happened and his reply to me was, "oh we've been having problems with bed bugs on the building since last summer." (Summer of 2011) I asked him how come we as tenants were never informed of this problem so we could have taken precautions to protect ourselves and he didn’t have an answer for me. The only thing he said was that he would call the pest control company and get them to spray my apartment and that is the main thing. A week later Standard Pest Control showed up and sprayed everything and came back again 2 weeks later to repeat the spray. Everything seemed ok and I went out and bought a new bed and box spring and a protective bed bug cover by the end of February 2012. Then on May 3rd I was getting ready to make up my bed after doing laundry and saw 2 bed bugs crawling around. 1 on my new bed and 1 near my head board. I killed them both and pulled out my bed again to check and I couldn’t believe what I found there... 3x more bed bugs then what I had the first time!! I don’t understand!?! So I am here again packing up everything and powdering up everything with bed bug powder to get ready for another set of spraying by the same company who came the last time to spray... Over this past weekend I went to throw some stuff out in the back of the building and found 7 beds in the garbage!!. I don't understand how I am the first person on this building to report this problem seeing how it’s been going on for so long... PEOPLE! Things are hard enough financially for everyone these days, we need to inform each other of what’s going. This is a costly problem but if we keep each other informed and look out for one another, we could save ourselves a whole lot of money, stress and sleepless nights!
I'm itchy all the time; I can’t sleep, eat, work, think clearly or have any visitors over. Any dark spot I see anywhere, at home, at work and even on other people, my heart starts beating fast and I get so scared that it’s a bed bug!.....God help all of us!... Please keep informing each other.
