I've lived on the 14th floor for 2 years now (it is February 2013) and I have never once noticed a single bed bug, bite, roach, or anything in this building! I have friends who live on the 8th, 10th, 16th, 19th, and 1st floors as well, and none of them have ever had a single problem with bugs either.

THIS WEEK THE ENTIRE APARTMENT BUILDING OF 30 HUMBERLINE HAS DECLARED AN OUTBREAK OF BEDBUGS.
ALMOST HALF OF THE APARTMENTS ARE INFESTED WITH THESE BLOOD SUCKERS.
I KNOW THAT FLOOR 2,7,14,16 ARE INFESTED WITH THE BUGS BECAUSE I USED TO LIVE IN THE BUILDING 10 DAYS AGO AND SAW THE PEST CONTROL ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS..
MY ACTUAL APARTMENT WAS NOT INFESTED AS YET BUT I GOT OUT OF THERE BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE. I DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO REPLACE MY MATTRESS AND CLOTHES.
FOR ANYONE WHO IS CONSI
DERING RENTING FROM THIS APARTMENT BUILDING I HOPE YOU TAKE HEED FROM THIS WARNING BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT BE SO LUCKY
I attend Humber College and we were looking for an apartment for the fall and decided to take the one on humberline because we wanted to make sure we got one. So I slowly moved in over the summer... one time I stayed there and I came home to go camping with my family and I had bites EVERYWHERE. I had slept there one night.
I had no idea where they came from so I thought it was something I had eaten (because I was living back at home).
From that point until September,
I only slept in the living room because I had friends over and my bedroom was too small to sleep there.
There was brown stuff on the ceiling in my room only when we moved in, and we thought maybe it was some sort of mould or something- but I wasn't too concerned.
Then school started... and so did the bites. It was awful. I had no idea what it was- I thought I was allergic to something, or that I was sick with something. Until one day I was sitting on my bed and a bug crawled onto the paper I was reading.... and I had the biggest breakdown in the world. I had checked and checked and checked before and found nothing (they were hiding underneath the flap of the seam of the head-side of my mattress)
So, while attempting to stay on top of my papers and midterms, I had to de-bug. It was only in my room- not the other girls.
When we went to the front desk, they acted like they had never seen it before, like they were surprised! until I asked them what was going to happen and they said that the bug guys come every friday. EVERY FRIDAY. They also tried to blame me and say I brought it in with me... and they asked me what I used to bring my stuff over when I moved. I told them we used my dad's pick-up and it was funny the looks on their faces when I told them that my dad is an IRON worker- like the last thing in the world that bed bugs live on.
so I spent 6 hours in the laundromat, threw out my mattress, my furniture and half my wardrobe. I wasn't allowed to go home to my parents because they can't afford the thousands of dollars needed to get rid of them. My parents threw out the mattresses that I had slept on when I had come over. I lost sleep, money and possibly even scared away some friends. I had to buy a new mattress and kept all my clothes in bins that had double sided tape on the bottom so that if they decided to invade, they would get caught on the bugs. I also struggled with insomnia for weeks/months after.
After it was fumigated, they never came back- or so that we know of. I moved into our sunroom and we taped off the door to my old bedroom. I taped everything in the apartment and used double-sided tape in the sunroom where I was sleeping. When moving back home, I rewashed and dried everything possible. I threw out many memorabilia from my past because I had no idea what was in it.
I would have to say that bed bugs was one of the worst experiences ever. This building is full of them- the only way to get rid of them is if they burn the building down and get bedbug dogs to sniff down any prospective tenants from moving in.
oh. and the brown stuff on the ceiling in my room?
Another person's digested blood. Bed bug feces.
Thanks 30 Humberline for traumatizing me. To all those out there who find out that you got bedbugs... be persistent. And be ready to give up alot of money at first- its worth it. Dont skimp out. the little buggers will be back. Thankfully- I never had mind return- but every once and a while the paranoia sets in (and even though they were gone since the beginning of december and I've been back home since june 2010)and I take a peak at the head of my bed.
I moved into my apartment early January and have begun on a slow ride to insanity ever since. I started getting covered in these little what I thought were mosquito bites. I have seen many doctors, spent days in the hospital, and even quit my job because I believed they may have come from there. I went to my landlord and they, without any hesitation, or testing, without even looking at my apartment, told me that it was bed bugs. They had a sheet ready to hand me about the action that needs to be
taken. They have been having problems with bed bugs for who knows how long, and neglected to tell any of the tennants. I havent slept in two months, and am constantly scratching. I have 2 dogs and a cat, and now they are all infested. Even if I move now the bugs are in all of my furniture and bedding. They are telling me to be able to get someone to come in and get rid of the bugs I have to vacate the apartment for 4 hrs, and take EVERYTHING out of my cupboards, closets, drawers etc, and I have no place to put this stuff. They will not provide me with another apartment. I dont want to stay with family in fear that I will pass this on to them. This has been happening since January 8, 2010 in apartment 1410. (Even if they spray my place all the apartments next to mine are probably infested and mine will just get re infested again, not to mention the fact tht they are trying to use a discount bug place that probably doesnt have any idea how to get rid of them)
