90 Ontario St
Toronto, ON M5A

Found 13 reports:

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.
