Sleep Tight, Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite!

When you heard the phrase "sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite" it seemed like folklore some what of a myth. I personally heard my father say it as a child and did not think they were real. To my surprise bed bugs are very real and prevalent in our area as well as the rest of the country. Working as a property manager for years I have had hands on experience with the pest at Oyster Point Place apartments in Newport News Virginia. These parasitic insects rest in box springs and mattresses and other places in the home waiting for their food source to sleep.

They feed on your blood similar to mosquitoes and leave itchy bumps behind. At Oyster Point 40% of the community is infested with them and they are extremely difficult and expensive to get rid of. Resident Robert foster who resides at the apartment complex says he moved into a unit that was infested. He stated he noticed the pest after a month or so, he stated he thought they were mosquito bites. Says the property said that they would spray the unit and that should take care of them. In one week after treatment from pest control he still noticed them and requested a transfer. The corporate office transferred Mr Foster as long as he did not bring his furniture or beds with him. Tiffany Widder Moved in January 2011 and had no idea that she had bedbugs until the office notified her that her neighbors had them so her apartment should be inspected. After a brief inspection the pest control service noticed that she was in fact infested and came and treated her apartment once. Guess what, Tiffany still noticed bed bugs even after treatment. Read reviews about Oyster Points bed bugs I personally remember a resident when I worked there was moved into i unit that management knew had bed bugs but in a push to increase occupancy management took the risk that she may not notice them.

They were wrong and the resident broke her lease right away. Residents have been informed to throw away all their furniture and bedding, which is costly and treatments run anywhere betwwen $200 and $500 so they are very costly to be rid of. It seems that bed bugs are not just prevalent in low income housing the Waldorf Astoria as well as the Four Seasons in New York City has had numerous bed bug reports.
