We moved out of this building in August of 2012. We got bed bugs right before we left. Many people on the floor had been moving out, I suspect it was due to this. I did not want to take them to our new building!
We immediately called the super. They said they would have someone come 'soon', 'within a few days'. We were moving out in just a couple weeks and had no time to waste! On top of the slowness of their response the person coming do spray was only going to dust. After extensive researc
h I learned this is the cheap method, which *can* be effective, but takes time and several repeat applications.
We had no time! We hired our own pest control person. He came the next day, was professional and amazing! We were diligent with cleaning, washing and throwing things out and we have been bedbug free for 3 years! No thanks to the building...
Note- they absolutely refused to pay for any of the cost of our spraying. I didn't care that much, it was money well spent for peace of mind.. but come on.. they could have at least given us how much they would have paid their own guy. He was saved a trip and we hopefully cleaned the place for the next resident.

I moved into 15 Shallmar blvd a year ago, and a few
months after I moved in, a notice was put up staring that
several tenants had bedbugs and that they would
be treating the units that are next to the infested ones.
My neighbour across the hall informed me
that he infact had bedbugs and asked if I had them too
at that time I did not; however I still wanted my unit
treated and the super informed me it would be.
It was not! This past week my 5 yr old daughter and
I have woken up with red
, raised marks in clusters
of three, they appear to be bedbug bites, although
I still have not seen any bugs. I wrote a letter to the
super telling her as much. She was in my unit yesterday
with a pest control professional. I received a voicemail
message from her stating that they did not find any
bugs and that they will not treat my apartment until
I provide proof in the form of a bedbug in a ziplock
bag or on a piece of tape! I'm not satisified with
this response and plan on taking this matter further. I don't understand why I have to have a full blown infestaton before they will treat my apartment! I would think that is would be best to treat my unit now bfore the situation is out of control!!

We just discovered bed bugs in our unit last night. I will post again regarding how the landlord deals with it.
I highly suspect that this has been an issue on my floor as several tenants have moved out in the last few months and the unit next to me seemed to be 'cleaned' and repaired for quite some time before anyone new moved in.
Add to this that the 'cleaning' happened ~ 1month ago or so and that is right when we started waking up with itchy welts and I can't help but be pissed that our su
per never said anything!
We are moving out in a few weeks and the last thing I want is to bring these with me!
