Lived hered in 2010. Building was great for the first 8 months then all of a sudden bed bugs appeared. Ran far away and left as super and staff are unprofessional and not on the ball. Talked to other residents as well and several had the same issue. Building maintenance is not up to par and previous super was arrested for fraud. Isn't the best place to live but bearable student living. They should build a park somewhere as there are many kids left to play in the sreet

After my apartment was sprayed by the exterminator's insistence, but without permission from the superintendent who knew I had them and complained, 2 weeks later, after I moved to Calgary, my son went to pick up a good cast iron frying pan I left, opened the kitchen cupboard and found a damn GRANDFATHER bedbug, or as he put it, "a big juicy one". I thought the spray kills the bugs, and 2 weeks later, you spray to kill teh babies from the eggs who haven't hatched yet. Well, this wasn't a baby!!
He left with his father taking nothing!!!!!
NEVER MOVE HERE!!!! This building has gone through 3 superintendents in 3 months!! Figure it out!!
And, the whole street #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 Biggin Court are ALL INFESTED, and they don't give 2 shoots about you, your kids, your furniture...NOTHING.
Denise Corbet Safe and bedbug free in Calgary. Sleeping in a king-sized bed with no f'n bedbugs 2 weeks later. All I brought was the clothes on my back. Living and sleeping like a queen.
I am a soon to be ex-tenant of #103, and my unit was INFESTED before I moved in July 15, 2011. When the superintendent was fired, she told me, "By the way, you had bed bugs in your unit when you moved in." did I ever!!! big lesions due to bites ALL over my face, hands and body. I am so outta here. And I have shown the new supers dozens of live bedbugs in baggies, and they refuse to exterminate. Finally, an exterminator knocked on my door last week, and insisted to spray my apartment because
he said he just sprayed the "crack house apt." beside me and they were so infested, that he wanted to spray my place, too. But, he also said it was futile to spray my apt. because my neighbours were so severely infested and irresponsible (crackheads), that I would NEVER get rid of them.
DO NOT MOVE HERE!!!! THE SAME OWNERS OWN BUILDINGS ALL ALONG THAT BLOCK, AND THEY ARE ALL INFESTED, ACCORDING TO THE EXTERMINATOR.
MOVING TO ALBERTA WHERE WITH BARELY THE CLOTHES ON MY BACK TO STAY WITH FAMILY TO ESCAPE THESE BEDBUGS HERE. ALSO, EVERY NIGHT I CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP. I AM LEAVING IN A FEW DAYS, WITH A MONTH'S RENT OWED TO ME, AND I DON'T CARE. GET ME OUTTA HERE!!!!!!!!!!
It started in May 2010, started getting bites while sitting on the couch watching TV and waking up in the morning with even more of them. Not knowing what was biting me, went to the Dr's to be told spider bites, had the apartment sprayed but kept getting bites.
We tore our couch apart since I seemed to be getting bites more often on the couch then anywhere else, that's when we discovered the bed bugs, they were living in our couch.
Told our super, they arranged for a spraying for a da
te a week away. It was hell getting the apartment ready but we did everything we were told to do. They did not do a follow up spray as they were supposed to and the problem never went away.
Property Management at the time was TransGlobe, the worst property management company around in my opinion, they don't care about their tenants they are cheap and don't like getting things done for their tenants.
The super at the time was a joke, always playing loud music, drinking, smoking up it was absolutely ridiculous. We made the decision, moved out and couldn't be happier.
Now it's a year later and we are living bug FREE in our new apartment and loving every minute of it, we are back to enjoying our quiet time at home without being worried that we are being bitten alive.
We were in apartment #311 and I know for a fact that they rented it out shortly thereafter to new unsuspecting tenants without doing anything about it.
Be warned...this building is not where you want to be if you value your sanity.
