it's not all bad.. frankly i think it is because there are some idiots who have bad cleaning habits (ie. don't bother to throw out their garbage properly into the garbage chute and leave it in the floor of the garbage room, letting their cat or dog pee or poop in the hallways and don't bother cleaning up, etc.) no wonder there are cockroaches! i am surprised there aren't as many bugs as these fucking disgusting habits would attract all sorts of vermin. you shouldn't rely on the property manageme
nt company to clean up after you..

Same entry as 798 Richmond Street West, but with minor edits:
Boyfriend currently lives in this building and he has been dealing with a cockroach infestation for the past 7 months (first cockroach appearance was in May 2015). He contacted the property management company, Akelius, to try to deal with the cockroaches on multiple occasions. The landlord had sent in a pest control company two times, once to put down powder. The second time was with bait and gel. The third time the property manage
ment caulked the baseboards and put weatherstripping under the door to prevent further cockroaches from entering the unit.
My boyfriend is relatively clean but continues to still find cockroaches in his place, including some that have actually crawled onto him while he was just sitting in a chair. The building is infested - we've seen big cockroaches in the stairwells and the hallways on a regular basis, and have also confirmed with another friend living in a different unit and different floor that he has also found cockroaches in his place.
Bottom line: Do not rent from this building or this company because clearly there is a cockroach infestation in this building and the property management is not adequately addressing this issue.

I have lived at 800 Richmond since 2013. I have never seen a bed bug. I had 2 cockroach sightings and the building dealt with it immediately. Also, the building is sprayed preemptively. Now if only they'd do something about the crappy elevators....

A friend and I are looking into this building however the number of bed bug complaints are a little alarming. Does anyone have a recent update about this situation? I believe our unit may be on the 1st or 4th floor. Thank you!!

We've moved out of this building after 2.5 years. What a nightmare...we had our unit treated SIX times, and management refused to treat the surrounding units because they didn't find activity.
The inspector told us that inspections fail unless you have severe infestation. The same day they inspected our unit and told us we didn't have them...we found 1.
800 Richmond St West has BEDBUGS on 12/27/2012
For the past 2.5 years I had not ONE single bedbug or any bug at ALL!
They had a Bed Bug sniffing dog come into my unit and I was told I was ok and the dog detected ZERO bedbugs. NOW I have gross amount of bedbugs that infested in my BED!
THEY PROMISED ME THAT THEY'RE TAKING PREVENTATIVE MEASURES TO MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T A PROBLEM! I WAS PEREFECTLY OK UNTIL THIS GOD DAMN FLEA BAG CAME INTO MY PLACE!
DO NOT MOVE IN HERE! THEY SAY THEIR DOING RENOVATIONS BUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THE BEDB
UGS ARE SCATTERING TO OTHER UNITS AS QUICKLY AS THEIR EGGS ARE HATCHING! YES F'N HATCHING!
THIS IS AN OLD BUILDING AND THE PROBLEM WILL CONTINUE TO GROW! ALSO I FOUND A DEAD BED BUG UNDER THE BATHROOM SINK!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! FML

That's right! On behalf of the new landlord, Briarlane has completed canine inspections in all units, preventative pest (including bed bug) treatment in all units and treats units with bed bug issues on an individual basis. Please contact your Superintendent if you have any concerns.

I have just received a notice that there will be canine inspections on Oct 11 and 12, 2012, followed by peventive treatments and full scheduled treatments is required

Anonymous, you're posting on the wrong forum. This is about bed bugs. Complain about the superintendent to building management if you have a concern.

this is a good building to live in but one negative thing about this building is it's superintendent, Manuel! He is rude and lazy! i always see him smoking or lounging around in the building! i also find it unfair that his apartment has a LAUNDRY WASHER and everyone else is not allowed!

The case of bedbugs @ 800 Richmond St. West seems to be resolved. Management paid for repeated treatments (as is required by law) without any fuss. However, an area that could use improvement is that there seems to be little knowledge about bedbugs within management ranks. Information should be given to *all* residents to better prevent and contain bed bug infestations in the future.
For now, this case is solved.

The unit on the 14th floor continues to have bed bugs despite several treatments. Either the bugs are coming in from another neighbouring unit that has not reported it or they are pesticide resistant.
It seems that others have them but have not reported their cases: discarded entire bedroom sets in good condition have been found in the dumpster.
Management has been quick to address the situation but seems oblivious of how to deal with bed bugs, completely transferring the responsibility
to the pest control company who appears to be a pesticide company, not a bed bug specialized company. Spraying pesticides is not enough.
Write to your management to demand that they put together an action plan to inform all residents on educating themselves on the signs of bed bugs and reporting any suspicious signs immediately. Information is vital in defeating this pest.

Hi, I was wondering if there were any updates on this. Does anyone know if the problem was taken care of or whether it has spread?

i was informed that an apartment on the 14th floor has been confirmed as having bed bugs. Apparently it's localized to that unit, and has been sprayed...we'll see. I'll keep you posted if any other reports emerge.
