Well, we have lived here for almost 4years now. We never had any problems with bed bugs. But we notice a few bites here and there, didn't think it was bed bugs, since i have very sensetive skins and allergies. One day my husband and i where planning to go to bed, and he notice a bite and we started looking on the bed and found a adult bed bug. We have been trying to talk to the superintendent about it and we had to wait for almost 3weeks before they could call in the pest control. The superinten
dant said they get the pest control company to come twice a month every month...but if u think about it..if that was the case, then why did we wait 3weeks? They finally came and sprayed, we had to leave all our stuff in bags outside the balcony for weeks before we could finally start moving everythung back in. The fun part is that we needed to wash everything in hot water and dry everything in the dyer with hot temperature..and of course, the washers and dryers don't work properly and it's not enough hot water on some washers and sometimes there isn't any hot water..even though you push the "wash hot water" and the dyer doesn't even get hot enough, so we gotta not just dry it twice but 3 times just to make sure everything is dry and that the bed bugs that survived all die in the heat. All i need to say is...WTF is wrong with this building? you fix the look of the outside to get more tenants to move in...but don't even try to help the tenants that ARE living here and need to help get rid of the bed bugs, we wish we could do something about their responsabilities and they should pay for all our loss..all the stuff we had to get rid of and buy new. DON'T EVEN RENT HERE!! IT'S NOT WORTH THE HEADACHE!! THEY DON'T LISTEN OR EVEN HELP, THEY WILL DO ANYTHING UNTIL YOU SIGN THAT LEASE..THEN THEY IGNORE YOU,DON'T ANSWER YOUR CALLS AND NEVER FIXES YOUR APARTMENT WHEN IT NEEDS REPAIR.

My 2 year-old daughter and I moved into 105 WEST LODGE AVE.,Toronto,in the area of Queen and Lansdowne, on the first of October 2008. Just couple days after, I notice lots of red spots on my legs,toes,face,neck and arms, and also in my daughter. I thought that was some kind of alergy reaction, than I bought Benadryl at the Drug Mart.
Not getting better at all, I went to see my family doctor wich gave me more medicines but told me to come back next day so he will send me to an especialist. The d
ermatologist told me that was bedbugs bites and gave me more medicines. But I didn't know what was bedbug because this is not commmon in my original country.
I was crazy looking for this bugs and finaly I found them.I thought I was going crazy, I couldn't sleep, I had to get rid of my furniture, matresses, stroller, clothes,chairs,towels, some toys, etc... so many things!!! Imediatly I pack some clothes and move to my friends, so I really couldn't enjoy my apartament... I didn't even finish unpack!
My landlord accused me to bring these bugs to the building instead of helping me.
They send an exterminator to spray my apartament... which remains full of bedbugs!!!
I talked to my next door neighboor and he said he has it since he moved in in November 2007!!!!
I'm sure this building is full of bedbugs!!
I talked to my landlord that I no longer can leave in this building and they want to sue me for breaking the contract.
My doctor told me to don't go back there.
I lost lots of days of work.
I have to look for another place to rent starting in november; meanwhile I was leaving in a room of my friend's house, whith all my clothes in my car inside garbage bags. That was a true hell!!!
My ex-husband went over to pick up my daughter when he notice that was some bugs under the polishing of the floor, it means that the building don't clean before polishing, they just polish over wherever is on the floor.
I'll never forget those days...that was the worse thing it even happened to me. In a short time my daughter whom is only 2 years had spept in so many different places. It was very hard for us. Especially for the kids to adapt to new places in a short period of time, different places, different beds, etc... It's not easy!!
Now I'm suing my landlord for my first and last month rent, for all the material loss that I had and also for all the emotional stress that we pass those days we've been in that building!!!
An inspector for the city of Totonto told me this building has a huge list of complainings about cleaning.
I'm in my new apartament now, but I still getting up couple times at night to check my daughter and my bed looking for those bugs!!!! I'll flight very hard against my landlord because as a human been and as a tenant I have all the rights to leave in a healthy and clean place.
