The 3 buildings constituting City Park are now completely riddled with bed bugs. The management team and the Board seem uninterested. All suggestions on how to best eliminate these pests are met with a 'we can't do that' or a favorite 'it is a privacy issue'.
I recently threw in the towel and moved out. I had battled beg bugs in my unit continuously for over 8 months. Sprayed over 18 times and still they were there. And this was my 3rd time getting these things.

I live in 484 Church street and I recently had bed bugs. My Building dealt with the situation as best they could but my neighbour says that they haven't been able to get rid of them in my unit for the past 5 years. I loved living here but as a result I must leave. Obviously I can never really know if what my neighbour says is true. Heck I might have brought them in. But after all the money I lost I would feel so much safer not living here anymore.

The Co-op Members at City Park's 3 buildings are in denial. They are terrified of the stigma of having bedbugs so they just pretend they are not there. They've all had them at one time or another. The 3 buildings are infested, that's a fact. As an ex-co-op member I can attest to that and the hell that is living in this condition.
Management is too busy answering to all the members' gossip and aggression to take care of the problem. The board members are to busy fighting over 1 and
2 bedroom units to pay attention to an overwhelming health issue that affects all residents. Residents in turn, are too busy trying to get their next sex or drug fix or both.
So I guess that paints a clear picture of the place. Before anybody answers back to this claims, the long waiting list to get a unit at this place is only explained by the reduced rent policy that applies to low income members.

Got sprayed etc - no results ( maybe takes time ) went to Big Carrot on Danforth Ave and bought Diatomaceous Eath - this stuff is the bomb - it works - DE and those climbup things are the answer - also might as well spray too but 4sure the FOOD GRADE fresh water DE will kill the little bxxtards...just be careful in application as bad for lungs. Put in little puffer and puff sparingly around bed and furniture. Those plastic condiment bottles work well for puffer. Joanie

Live on 4th floor - am getting bitten badly - am allergic to the bedbugs - very painful - had them about 3 weeks - told co-op and they sent exterminators who use liquid and powder- they treated apt last Wednesday - hasn't made any difference - the exterminators come again on 27th ( 2 weeks later ) - am freaking out and trying to figure out how to hang hammock ( need to proper walls facing each other ) may have to sleep on balcony. Wish could live in a tree house or something. This sux ..
Seriously bugged out here on 03/24/2012
Neighbor indicated a week ago discovered bed bugs on 8th Floor apt. & now being treated.
Went home immediately to check my bedroom on 8th floor across the hall & sure enough I also have them. Saw 3 living bugs on box spring mattress that ran away when I touched them. They looked like black fuzz.
Argh this is a freaking nightmare.
