THIS WOMAN IS A THIEF, A PROSTITUTE, METH USER AND PSYCHOPATH. BEWARE OF BE MINDFUL BODY WORK. YOU'LL GET HIV IF YOU GO THERE.


90 Ontario Street has seen an increase in bed bug reports since many Tenants began renting their units on AirBNB. Management was alerted to this prohibited use and demanded that the ads be taken down. All of the units that were listed on AirBNB were infected and subsequently some of the bugs migrated into neighbouring units. The affected Tenants started a negative publicity campaign because they are upset that they will not longer profit from subleasing their units.


I have been living in the building for over four years and had numerous issues with bed bugs. The second and third floors are completely infested and for the over the last year and a half, two different extermination companies have been hired but only treat this issue on a unit by unit basis. The building is an old industrial shoe factory with lots of porous woods and very thin drywall walls (which is why everyone in the building can hear their neighbors, even when speaking in a normal tone of v

oice.) It's a bed bug paradise. When one unit is sprayed, the units above, below and next to the treated unit end up infested since the bedbugs are able to easily escape the treatment.
I'm not going to write too much here as the I agree with everything in the previous report to mine. Aristocrat Property Management and the assigned property manager Nancy are terrible. They are completely unresponsive to tenant issues and have failed to address this along with many other problems in the building. For instance, our intercom system has been broken for over six months and the front door is constantly left open which has led to homeless people staying in the building during cold nights. Numerous people have moved out of the building over the last few months, primarily because of the bed bug issues and lack of response from Nancy and Aristocrat. If I was the building owner, I would be furious. The management companies lack of action and Nancy's decision to be confrontational with tenants over these and issues has led to further infestation.

I've been in this building for 5+ years and NEVER had a problem until 2015... started with roaches; saw one here and there (killed them!), then it was like our bathroom and kitchen were infested with them. They were EVERYWHERE (cupboards, under the sink, shower, falling from the bathroom ceiling, coming out from the electrical outlets, even in our STOVE!). After a week I called the landlady Nancy, it took her a week to return our call and at least another week to get someone to our unit. The ext

erminator (a really nice guy) came and treated the unit with diatomaceous earth. They ceased... for a while.

Shortly after, we started waking up with what we thought were mosquito bites. It didn't take long before we realized they were actually bed bug bites. Cockroaches are one thing (they're in every building in this city, and the construction from the new condos is making them seek out new homes so it makes sense) BUT BEDBUGS... NOPE. NOT DOING IT.

We called Nancy, again she took forever to get back to us, and when she did she thought it was necessary to say it was OUR FAULT. Of course it had nothing to do with the fact that rather than treating the whole building at once - which would have kept them from moving units - she just dealt with it on a case by case basis. So... above us had them, and both sides of us had them, then we got them as they were trying to flee from the units that were treated. Yes Nancy, it was *our fault*. Pfft. What a joke of a landlord.

It was only after speaking with all the people living on our floor, along with others above and below us, that we realized it was an issue with the ENTIRE BUILDING... and every one had the same thing to say - Nancy took forever to get back to them and when she did she blamed each unit, even though she KNEW where it started (on the 5th floor) and was fully aware of the fact that the problem was spreading as units were being treated.

Since we were treated we had a couple more bites, rather than waiting for Nancy to do anything about it we bought a couple bottles of diatomaceous earth and treated our unit (you can find lots of videos on YouTube about how to do it properly). Since then we haven't had any bites and the cockroaches are totally gone.

If you ask me the problem isn't with the building, it's with the way Nancy chooses to deal with situations like this. She's absolutely horrible at tenant relations and doesn't treat the tenants in the building with any respect. I honestly have no idea how she still has a job here.

I had bed bugs last March and the landlord was responsive and had it treated relatively quickly. I now have both roaches and bedbugs and the landlord can't even muster the effort to respond to my emails. This is typical of her. I would never recommend that anyone move into this building. Other than having a cool aesthetic, there is nothing desirable about this location. Further, the sketchy landlord makes you sign a commercial lease so that she can completely absolve herself of having to wo

rry about renter's rights.

Cockroaches have been a problem for a at least a year and a half. The problem has spread to all the unit on my floor. People are leaving and now my neighbors just informed me there's also bedbugs in the building. The landlord's been responsive for the cockroaches. My place and other units on my floor have been treated twice, and gel bait left. I've sprayed on my own as well. But the damn things are still coming around. Waking up to one crawling on you is quite the sensation. Bedbugs are just the

final straw. I'll be leaving shortly as well.

There is a full blown cockroach problem at this apartment building. I can't believe the superintendent has ignored the problem to this extent. People are moving out almost monthly now once they see how bad the issue is. It's disgusting and frustrating considering how much rent is paid to the landlords each month. Unbelievable lack of communication on their end too.


Bed bugs are definitely still present! We have a unit on the third floor and just recently started getting bitten in the night. There are also other mattresses and couch cushions outside the building so I'd imagine we are not the only ones.. It's a great building and the landlord is extremely cooperative but just beware..


Infested with cockroaches. Landlord sprays intermittently but there are still major issues. Too bad, because we've really loved our apartment and enjoyed it until now. We've kept our unit insanely clean, almost medically so, and there are still problems as they are clearly infesting the entire building at this point. We've seen them predominantly in the washrooms, but recently on our bed and under the kitchen sink as well. This started occurring around February of 2015 and has only progressed in

tensively since then and now (April 2015).

Hi all - has there been any updates since last August on bed bugs at 90 Ontario Street? Looking at a unit on the 4th floor.

Thanks!


Have there been any recent incidents at 90 Ontario Street?


Lastsummer in Aug2014.I was wondering why I got bit by Mosquitoes but it was wrong theres no much tiny mosquitoes came in but Bedbugs on my bed.I had less infested than my suite mate.Second spray reported to the superintendent and they told me that they found a mattress in the hallway that full infested.But why they did not spray this hallway first till the came in to our suite.Fortunately our neighbor had nothing especially next door.So Id request a for bed bug Buster they came but it still th

ere and the second but still here,.Inspite of the washing and throwing put clothes in the bags and sealed.U can imagine i slept in the reclining chair for almost 3 months the stress and ichy not pain but pain and suffering.I had spent money to buy bedbug pesticide and encasement Bedbug's cover for $54.00 dollars lots of work.I have to off at work because i have no sleep a stressfull night.I have phobia now everytime i feel ichy on my body i felt bugs still crawling on my body.i lost my spring bed and my bed soon.Could we ask a help from the Ministry of health for another new bed?Im a senior that has limited work.thanks for listening.I wonder if this is including with my apt insurance or home insurance.

As recently as July of 2011 there have been bedbug problems, most recently at the southern end of the second floor. The landlord did fumigate so the issue may or may not have been resolved.


i have lived here for two years and can say the building hasn't had a problem during my time here. i think this was from quite a few years ago and the landlords dealt with it.


no...


I am considering a unit in this building to move in the month of June, 2011. Does anybody have an update as to whether the infestation problem has been corrected? Just wondering since all of these reports are from 2009.


I would like to thank all of you for your postings. I was going to get a place here and actually had no knowledge of this prolific and pesty problem. Have any of you ever thought to contact someone about it? I know for a fact the press love and are all over stories like this. Is that Silvermann Helps guy still kicking around? Lol.


I have lived on the 2nd floor for 2yrs+. When I first arrived i was not informed by room mates that such things even existed.

Over the first year, had many infestations bringing on major insomnia, and many many fumigations, which brought costs for laundry n re-furnishing (yet the landlord covered all the fumigation). The problem was we never changed the lifestyle to which the bugs enjoy..low lighting, no air-flow, entire carpeted floor (which was there for years), and sum what dirty room m

ates.

Over the last year, everything has changed, the room mates, NO carpet, installed fans and bright lighting (at no cost to myself), and have for this entire time been BUG FREE.

It is all a matter of keeping up your regular cleaning, and living with clean people. Being aware and knowing the signs is the only solution.

It would seem living anywhere in Toronto--especially living anywhere around or south of Queen St between Bathurst and woodbine, is known for having an ongoing infestation problem due to living to close to the water, and the high winds.

Thank you all for posting! Saved me a BAAAD experience.


2nd floor in this building, living here for the past two years. Have been infested on and off for practically the entire time living here.
There have been periods of respite, but eventually they keep coming back.

The entire building needs to be fumigated all at once. The standard practise in the building is to spray one apartment at a time. This allows the bed bugs to run away from the pesticide into neighbouring units.

This apartment has been sprayed countless times in the last two ye

ars (definitely above 10) and the problem keeps coming back.

Stay away from this building if you value your sanity.

Bug free for 6 months now! Remaining ever vigilant...


We moved in a couple of years ago and had friends in other lofts who had to get sprayed but we didn't have a problem untill two months ago. We were sprayed twice and it didn't help, after throwing out our bedroom furniture, bed,boxsprings and three sofas we were sprayed again and it looks like it has worked, we are getting a follow up spraying again and I hope that is the end of it. Our landlords and very lazy caretaker of the building have helped with the spreading of the bugs. to date we know

of 6 lofts that have had a problem here. Because our landlords don't care the problem will not go away, they have kept very quiet about the bugs and you only find out from other people in the building or by finding them in your place. This building is below code with no airflow in the lofts, black mold and damp and of course the bugs, health and saftey would have a feild day here.

We had bedbugs in our unit on the 4rth floor in February 2008. One fumigation and one month of obsessive steaming and vacuuming got rid of them, only 2 corpses were found.

As of May 2008, there are several other units on the 4rth floor with bedbugs, and many tenants are moving out. Have heard through the grapevine that the bugs are even worse on the 3rd floor. People moving out leave their buggy junk in the hall. My unit has been bug free for 3 months but I picked one up on my shoe in the

hall and have had to pre-emptively start steaming and vacuuming again.

They just painted all the halls and stairwells. I wish they had spent the money on debugging the whole building at once. The walls are all wood so keeping your unit quarantined is impossible.

Makes me very sad, because I love everything else about my studio very much!

From approximately June 2007 until September 2007, 90 Ontario St. was entirely infested with bed bugs. The landlord refused to fumegate the entire building at one time, focusing on one suite at a time, giving the bugs the option of moving from suite to suite with out harm. My own suite was fumegated 2ce before the bugs ceased to bother us near the end of september, tho there were several reports from the neighbours of the bugs returning to many other levels and suites in the building. I have sin

ce left the building but last heard of complaints about the bugs as late as December 2007.
