Last week, I noticed that there were small bugs on my couch, after looking them up, I was able to consistently identify them as bed bugs. I have since thrown out my couches, but was told today by the manager Trish Williams that pest control has stated the bugs are in my mattress upstairs. I have talked with management about this issue, and note that I have not brought any new equipment or furniture into the apartment in the last few months. The manager stated that this was a tenant issue. I do not agree, I believe these bugs came from another unit. I have asked them to cover the treatment, which they are saying is $275. They believe I should cover this charge.

From Date IP Address Response
Renter Apr 4, 2013 The resolution I initially filed is the resolution I intend to accept once offered. Ms. Williams response only further adds insult to injury in terms of it's content. I have attempted to be civil and discuss this openly with management, but my statements seem to have been taken out of context. We have lived at Warwick West since around 07/2011, in another unit, and decided to upgrade our unit in 04/2012. In my discussion with Ms. Williams, I explained that I am a former resident assistant for my school, and thus have had some experience with bed bug issues in an apartment type setting, which all occurred prior to 07/2011, as I graduated in 05/2011 and am no longer in school. I understand how easily bed bugs can travel from one apartment to the next if not treated quickly and contained. In her statement, she responds as if this issue has followed me when it simply has not, and didn't affect me at my former residence to begin with. I simply stated that I have had experience in over seeing this type of infestation, and will note that they travel between apartments rather easily, and to this day, I do not believe that my wife, nor myself are the reason that this problem started. We threw away our couches after learning that we had bed bugs recently, when this incident first began shortly before I filed this claim. We should not be held financially responsible for a problem that we did not cause. As for your accusations that we have not followed the recommendations of your sheet, my wife informed me that she has completed all of the steps listed on the sheet provided to us to the best of her abilities and we, and notes that the mattress cover was listed as optional. We are both trying to limit our contact with the apartment as we do not want this issue to follow us to our temporary residence. We have not been able to stay in our apartment since this issue began and would like it resolved with all due haste, as no one enjoys paying rent for a service they are not receiving.
