A tenant alleged during an interview with The Star Press that a fellow tenant and her children have been bitten; that a bed-bug-infested couch has been sitting near a Dumpster for two weeks, and that the housing authority told the tenant whose apartment was infested that she would have to pay for an exterminator.
“Maintenance realizes there are bed bugs in the couch because they cut it open and there were hundreds in there, but they are just leaving the couch out there,” the tenant said in an interview this past Thursday afternoon. “They told her she would have to pay for the exterminator herself and pay to have the couch hauled away.”
