During July of 2017 while I was changing my sheets I squished a bug that looked like an apple seed. It squirted blood and I was quickly able to ascertain it was a bed bug. I got an inspector over to investigate as well and he confirmed it was a bed bug. It was an extremely minor infestation just in my room (maybe six or seven poop marks and just this body?) but nonetheless meant I was living out of garbage bags and storage boxes for six months and was bleaching and cleaning all of the walls, cei

lings, furniture, crevices, to desperately try to keep it from spreading to my roommate's rooms. I was successful thank goodness. My landlord and super were extremely unresponsive and denied my claims as hysterical. They did not assist in extermination at all and asked that I not speak about this with neighbors.

A year later during /the same month/ my room became re-infested. Again, I caught it really early on due to paranoia from the last incidence causing me to wash and check my sheets even more often. As you can imagine, I was pretty hysterical. After a lot of crying and demanding on the phone, an exterminator was sent by our landlord three or four days after the bedbugs arrived. Again, I had to live out of storage boxes and garbage bags for six months and again, for god knows what reason (mostly my vigilance and intense cleaning, boric acid routine, etc. etc.), it did not reach my roommate's rooms.

My upstairs neighbor who was a close friend of mine also had a similar very minor infestation in her bedroom, one bug maybe five or six poo blots. She privately paid for her extermination because she did not want to wait.

Overall, treated super dismissively by management. Terrible experience. The building itself, or someone in the building, clearly has an untreated bedbug problem. DO NOT MOVE IN HERE. I lived on the second floor.
