Mattress Town(6 posts)
OH MY GOD... That is disgusting. Last night (on a Friday of course) someone leaned 4 mattresses up against our building by the dumpster. Looking at them this morning, I can see the biggest bed bugs I have EVER seen crawling all them over in daylight! I doubt they're from our building because the entire place gets sprayed about every two weeks. There are two other buildings that share our parking lot and dumpster. The Truly Nolan guy says we caught them from an adjacent building he has been spraying for a couple years now. He had almost gotten rid of them, but the management decided to do some remodeling and the debris they were putting in OUR dumpster made them come into our building. I've called the health department once to report the 9 mattresses and 4 couches that had piled up out there from that building. After they cleaned them up, our bed bug problem decreased IMMENSELY. We haven't even seen any for weeks. I'm worried that these new mattresses will make the problem worse again. What a nightmare! If the buildings around us don't get sprayed, they just climb right back into ours. ARGH! If we move, we can't take any of our things with us. We'd have to start over. I'm just complaining. Does anyone know any emergency garbage removal resources? We've worked so hard to get rid of these things. We've done everything we were supposed to. UGH.

This does not sound like a very successful operation to me.
I'm sorry. I'm giggling also--at your header: "Mattress Town."
Ahem. Where are you located?
In last years, Milano is a mattress town too...
I'm in Salt Lake City. Ugh. It's not a successful operation because there are 4 large (50+ tenants) buildings that all share the same dumpsters and parking lot and not all 4 buildings are being sprayed. He has been very successful in our building. We had them pretty bad, but haven't seen one in weeks. He's way nice and knows a lot. It's the management of the other builds that aren't doing their jobs. He even goes over there and tells them that their mattresses are the problem. They just don't really care. I'm really lucky that we have great mangers. That will have the entire building sprayed if they get one report from anyone.
Well, there is our building, the other one he sprays, and there is another building that looks like it used to be two buildings but had an office for management built in between the them, so I can't really tell if it's one or two buildings.
