    Hello.

    I suspect I have bedbugs. First bites which I know I got 5th may, which is about five-six week ago. Other apartments tenant found bed bugs from apartment possible in november and after that he moved away. What I know PCO found one bed bug and feces from that apartment in march. In that apartment they started repairs and treatments after 15th april.

    I got first bites three week after that, so I suspect some bed bug might be left apartment to run away treatments.

    I called to deputy landlord and he said that bed bugs are pretty local and can't come from that other apartment which is in other end of hallway, about 18feet away.

    I think that if its bed bug and it get out under apartment door, bug randomly selected which direction to go, turned left and got here.

    So what I'd like know is it possible for bed bugs to move that distance to new apartment?

    If it came from there, then deputy landlord must pay treatments.

    But it is too great coincidence to get bed bug so close to other bug find myself from somewhere else, that's what I think.

    They can easily travel that distance.
