First things first, let’s settle the score right now – your landlord cannot evict you from your apartment if you have a bed bug incident or even a full fledged bed bug infestation. Your bed bug infestation in the apartment needs to be reported to the landlord, and it is the landlord’s responsibility to eradicate the bed bugs from your apartment. The reason that the landlord needs to get rid of the bed bugs for you is twofold. First, if the landlord is responsible for your apartment repairs, then paying pest control services counts as maintenance in the apartment. The second reason is that if the landlord ignores your requests to get rid of bed bugs infesting your apartment, then there may be other apartments that will be infested later when the bed bugs crawl out of your area and into other apartments in the same building.
“Help, My Apartment Has a Bed Bug Infestation, How Long Will It Last and What Can I Do Now About It?”
Unfortunately, if your apartment has a bed bug infestation, you will be stuck with those creepy crawlies until they are removed by a pest control service. You will need to make a formal report to your landlord, maintenance person or department, to the building superintendent or building “super” of the apartment building where you live. Bed bugs taking up residency in an apartment building are a health hazard, and you can report it to the health department authorities in your area. Also, bed bugs are a public health burden, and you can expect to have some physical symptoms from having to live with bed bugs in your residence.
What Are the Dangers of Living with Bed Bugs in an Apartment?
