My apartment is infested with bed bugs and Manager says is my fault !!!

By Silvia

I live in an apartment complex ( about 270 units) I got infested with bed bugs, I reported to the complex manager and she said it is my fault cause nobody has reported bed bugs infestation, so she adviced me  i take all my furniture to the garbage container. Checking around the property found that a lot of apartments are infested too, specially that building that i was living before (same property) so I guess that I got the bed bugs living in that infested building and bringing them to my new apartment. Residents with same problem were told same than she told  me " Is your fault cause nobody has report bed bugs infestation" on top of that, she says that she has not time to waste it on that issues and still advising to dump the infested furniture, so she is spreading bed bugs all around the property. What can I do ?
