Bed Bugged

Posted on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 10:06 AM

When we had asked your office about the claims of bedbugs in your building, you said the issue had been resolved and that there were no further complaints or evidence of bedbugs in the building in the past 6 months. When my boyfriend and I came and signed the lease, again we asked and you assured us it was not an issue and that if bedbugs were reported, your staff would remedy the situation. It's now 7 days into September and we've been living in this building. This morning both my boyfriend and I wake up with a series of bites. Searching around before heading to class we discover bedbugs! We know the beasts were not with us at our last place when we moved from there in August, so we can only assume the bugs were here waiting for us when we moved in. We called your office to inform you and you said you'd send someone to confirm, but that no date could be provided. We don't want to deal with bedbugs every night until you finally get around to eradicating them. No doubt I won't be the first person to complain this week, and those elevator trips up/down give us both plenty of time to chat with other residents. —Itchy & Scratchy
