    What would your apartment viewing checklist be for bedbugs?
    Its on my mind because I am looking at a new apartment thats a basement with very little ventilation; one small window, entrance down a long hallway. If the aparment is treated with DE or PCO chemicals, I assume this is a bigger safety hazard than most apartments. Thoughts?

    So whats your ideal list?

    • no carpet.
    • baseboards neatly joined to floor
    • as much white as possible. make it the white album
    • street completely unlisted on bedbugregistry
    • tile floors, tight wood, or linoleum?

    What else?

    Only one problem. I am aware of many many more apartments where I live that have/had them and they're not on the registry.
