Should apartment managers in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan and Queens provide every resident with a bed bugs prevention sheet and require the residents to sign off on it? That’s what happens at an apartment complex in East Austin. A comprehensive prevention list that also includes the techniques for a proper bed bugs inspection would be useful for NJ and NYC apartment residents. It might also give the residents the feeling that the apartment owner is actually concerned about them and is trying to be helpful. The manager of the apartment building in East Austin claims that if the residents follow the instructions it actually works. However, she claims that some residents are not following the bed bug instructions.
Perhaps some landlords will be passing out prevention lists and holding bed bug seminars with their renters as a way to provide evidence in court they have done what is appropriate to prevent bed bugs infestations and thus the infestation is the resident’s fault and the landlord should win the bed bug lawsuit. Besides the lawsuit issue, it seems appropriate for landlords and residents to work as a team to stop bed bug infestations.
If you have bed bugs ask a NJ, NYC bed bugs pest control professional to get rid of them.
