There was an infestation of at least one apt on the 4th floor of building two in mid-2012. It was reported to the managers immediately who treated right away (2x in a month) at no charge. NOTE: Maybe a month before we noticed them, the bldg had sent a pest-sniffing dog through our floor. I realize now that they must have already suspected or knew about the bedbugs. I don't feel that the treatment was thorough enough to actually have killed the bugs. I suspect they just migrated from that apt to
This place is just out of control. It took them several very invasive treatments to locate a GAPING hole in our floor board that they were coming in. After sealing it, the bed bugs are still coming in from various other entry points. They have cut several holes in the walls around the building to check for bed bugs, which proves that the entire building is invested.

Amendment to the previous post. The management has taken a proactive approach to the problem in this building and are now inspecting adjoining units to ones that have been treated. They are not charging tenants for the inspection or treatment and the PCO is sealing the entry points in the process. This is great news. If you have any suspicion, call management and they will help.

Major infestation in the walls of this building. They are nesting in the walls and using the communication pillars to move between floors and from apartment to apartment. If you have a phone/DSL jack, remove the circuit box from the wall and seal the holes in the wall. After sealing this we were finally able to regain control of the problem. We've taped the holes with clear packing tape and reinforced with duct tape so we have a window into the hole. There are many bugs travelling along the w
ires that we see on a daily basis through the hole. Once you've sealed your entry points, bedbug interceptors and Diatamaceous Earth should get the problem under control. We also tossed our bed, couch, chairs, and any clutter. Because of the infestation being in the walls, PCO treatments have no lasting effect unless you block the holes. Do not go to management, they will blame you for the problem and force you to pay for extermination.
i have had bed bugs on the 9th floor of tower two. they exterminated once, but that is typically not enough. i've learned that two other apts on the 9th floor have bed bugs. i just signed a lease sept 5th for this appartment and they are not willing to refund me or let me out of my lease. So i'm in an horrible position in that I can stay and leave my things in plastic bags for several months and not have friends over as most of them refuse to come at this point or i can toss everything i own in
the trash and break my lease. Either way, i'm loosing. I paid almost 3,000 to move into this apt on September 5th and still have yet to actually live life there. This weekend I did endless amounts of laundry and cleaning and i'm isolated from friends and family. I've rescheduled to meet outside of the apt as it has been recommended by my research on bed bugs. It is very unlikely to rid yourselves of them in 1 treatment. In addition to this, it has been incredibly difficult to sleep from being paranoid, etc. I don't know what to do...
There are absolutely bed bugs in Tower Two. There are three known infestations currently on the 9th floor. There have also been infestations on the 5th and 7th floors in the past couple of months. Speed to respond is imperative and management has been terribly slow. They are just now considering doing a "360 treatment," which is standard for prevention!
They need to: 1. alert the neighbors to be on the lookout (most people are not aware of what bed bugs ARE!) 2. Treating the apartments a
bove, below, and neighboring on either side of the infested apartment. 3. Exterminating ALL apartments in between new tenants moving in!
Denying that there is a problem and not informing tenants will lose you all your tents, OT8! The only way to retain them is to take care of them. And for Pete's sake, have sympathy for the inhumane living conditions you created!
Tower Two most certainly has bed bugs. Both my neighbor and I recently had infestations, which after a series of several treatments which did not fix the problem.
OT8's strategy of handling each apartment on a case by case basis, without informing other nearby residents, doesn't work. It's a building from the 40s with plenty of cracks in the floorboards, walls, ect for these bugs to escape through. Management needs to treat the building, not just individual apartments if they want to truly e
I live in building at 801 Spring Street (OT8) and it does NOT have bed bugs. Whomever posted a note on this website in April is wrong. If you had bed bugs you know it and be bitten constantly not once every 2 or 3 weeks.
Believe me I would not live in a place that had bed bugs or any other infestation.
I would highly recommend OT8 to anyone looking for a clean, convenient downtown apartment. The management staff is fantasic and more helpful than any other landlords I have ever had.
would ask the webmasters of this site to consider the facts and remove the negate post form this site because it is simply not true.
Apt 2-502. I haven't found where they live, and I only get bit about once every 2-3 weeks. I need to talk to an exterminator and my landlord to see what I can do to solve this problem. It seems to me from reading that spraying just my room wont help if they are actually coming from apartments nearby.
