    Thanks for this. The stats are always flawed as coop and condo owners don't always report to 311 as they are there own landlords. There must be several coops/condos who have the problem but don't report.

    Itchy,

    Coop and condo owners never call 311 about bed bugs. The HPD only inspects units of tenants in rentals.

    The skeweredness of the stats comes from the fact that the vast majority of renters don't call either.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
