    So I’m thinking about filing a lawsuit against my apartment complex for them mishandling my bedbug problem. Has this been done successfully? Do I have the right to sue them?

    Background:
    -they brought in a PCO twice, said they would only come back if I could capture a live one for them
    -the have not inspected or treated adjacent units
    -they had the maintenance guy “inspect” my apartment instead of bringing in a professional. He “cleared” me Tuesday. I found a live one this morning in my BATHROOM

    Did you tell them you found a live bed bug and they're refusing further treatment?

    Bigdummy- I showed them a live bug and the PCO is coming back! Hooray! Let’s get this show on the road...not going to take any legal action...yet.

    I don't think you should pursue legal action if they're still actively trying to help you.

    As long as they're working on it properly, it should work out. I've been on a few cases.
