I loved the headline of this article accompanying news video from WBNS 10TV:
“Bed Bugs Infest Apartment Building.” News at five.
Seriously, what would the world be like if every infested building was featured in just one major local news story? I can’t help having this thought when I see such headlines.
Sadly, that’s where my amusement ended.
The James Plaza Apartments in Cleveland is battling bed bugs, and after repeated treatments, bed bugs are still going strong. One tenant told reporters she’s moving out (good luck to her new neighbors!) and another wept as she described her bed bug experience.
Not to be upstaged, the management company made it clear who they feel is to blame:
Ebner Properties issued a statement to 10TV News, saying, “One of the apartment industry’s biggest fears is for a tenant to bring bed bugs into the community because it can entail such a lengthy and extensive treatment program.”
Wow. I’m speechless.
