Complaint of bed bugs- no evidence

By Cristina Rubin

I am a responsible landlord,   my tenant complains of bed bug bites and rashes. I sent  TWO reputable Pest Control  exterminators
who stated in their report that they  did NOT  found ANY   evidence of bed bugs  alive or dead ( skeletons), not fleas or any other pests.  Tenant presented me with
an "estimate" from  another company to " eliminate  all bed bugs" from the apartment for $800.00. Obviously this last company is not honest  The apartment is absolutely free  of bed bugs.  I believe  my  tenant got infected with scabies  in a trip to Honduras  and try to blame  the apartment.
 He lives there for two  years and the " problem"  started only after he returned from  a  trip abroad.
What is my obligation?
