I moved in this building 2 monthes ago. I found bed bug on my new sofa 3 days after I moved in. Since I had never seen bed bugs or had bed bug bite, I did not recognize that tiny bug was bed bug.
Since I though the bites were from mosquites. I did not do any bed bug treatment nutil I came back after two weeks vacation. I saw several just hatched bed bug on my sheet. They are very small, but the bites are very itchy.
I am thinking to move out this building.

Last summer (2011) I stayed at my friend's place in that building for about a week. After the two first nights I started noticing itchy bumps on my elbows. I didn't think anything of it at first because I had never had that problem before. Then one day I notice a bottle of bed bug spray on a shelve in her appartment... I freaked out and checked the bed. I SAW THE NASTY SHIT with my own eyes hidden in the folded corners of the bed sheet. Needless to say I immediately left. I mentionned it to the
janitor who said he never heard any problem of the sort and that they regularly spray the product for prevention...YEAH RIGHT! I advised my friend who was out of town at that time - she was surprised too and told me to get rid of the mattress. She has moved oout since then.
I've lived here for about 6 months and had no problems. I clean the apartment regularly and wash my sheets every week or so. Recently, I've been getting bitten by some kind of bug at night because I'm covered in horrible, itchy, red spots. I went to the clinic and they said that they are bed bug bites. Lovely. I know. Anyways, this place is a hole in the wall for what I pay, the amenities are deplorable, and ew! Bed bugs? Seriously? So, needless to say, I'm moving the second the lease ends. (Act
ually, probably sooner.) DO NOT move into this building. Seriously. Just don't.
This building has bedbugs and cockroaches. This summer, my neighbor found bedbugs in the apartment. I know at least 3 people who have seen bedbugs in their apartments over the summer. I highly recommend not to move into this building (unless of course, you like bedbugs and cockroaches).
