I just moved into ocean towers. I'm from Ontario and was totally oblivious to any bed bug problem. I have been here for a month now, I've had the apartment sprayed 3 times to try to solve the problem. And still my apartment is infested, I'm still finding live bugs. I'm COVERED in bites and itchy as hell! I've never even seen a bed bug before. My problem is that the building has infested all of my furniture and belongings, not that I have infested the building. What about us victims? Finally after bitching my face off they have allowed me to change apartments. First 5 minuets I was in the "clean" apartment in the same building, I killed 2 cockroaches and 1 bed bug. This is not my fault nor resposibility! I'm now switching towers. But who is going to pay to replace everything? I can't move any of my furniture or belongings in fear of infesting the new unit. (if it isn't all ready). So far no signs of bugs, but how can I be certin? I was better off in the little crappy apartment I was in before I moved here. Why should I have to pay a penny for any of this? I've vaccumed my face off, washed and dried more laundry then I have in my whole life! I just want out of here! Why is this not a health issue? I can't live like this!
