Landlord Bed Bugs!


I can’t sleep! … knowing that hundreds of bed bugs are waiting to attack is the worst living

Landlord bed bugs

nightmare!  I feel like I’m going mad!  This is a desperate plea for help.  For the last couple of months I have been getting more and more bed bug bites.  At first it was just a couple of bites that I though was from a spider or something, but now I wake up with hundreds of bites.  I can’t take it!!  Can anyone help me?  What can I do?  These bed bugs have infested my rental unit and I don’t know what else to do.  Look at this picture, isn’t it gross!!

I’ve been fighting with my landlord about getting him to treat my rental unit, but he refuses.  He keeps saying that I need to deal with it.  I checked into it and it will cost anywhere from $800 to $1400 for bed bug removal, OUCH!  To be honest I can’t afford it, but at this point I will do whatever is need to get a good nights sleep.  What should I do?  Should I move? Should I hire and Attorney?  Should I Admit myself to the psych ward, no joke, its getting that bad!  What are my options as a renter when it comes to bed bug removal?  I saw you can file a complaint here (with RPA) but is there a way to file a bed bug complaint?
I admit it, I’m desperate… What should I do?  Your advice is so needed!!  I think I’d rather live with monsters in my closet than with thousands of bed begs hiding in every corner waiting for me to go to sleep.  Please help!!!
