And then my sister's 6 flat in Chicago had bedbugs and she ultimately used the heat treatment too after the spraying did not work. Be sure to get them to give you some kind of guarantee. If the bugs are going to come back, they will notice them within a couple of weeks. So even just a 30 day guarantee, shoot for at least 60. Good luck to you. Not when he's stepping up to try to pay. Call me a softie (and few people do), but that doesn't feel like the "right" thing to do. It's not like he brought the bugs in purposefully or negligently.
I was going to go with the heat treatment (wow is that expensive), but I felt better about going with the spray when the recent inspector said the place sprayed 9 months ago is still bug free. And the inspecting exterminator was NOT the same one who originally sprayed. We just had the place sprayed today hoping the problem is solved. $900 for the entire duplex, basement and all. your case of bedbug re infestation in a different unit might have nothing to do with the original infestation. Bedbugs hitch a ride on all kinds of stuff, like furniture but even back packs. And this tenant may have just had some "new to the tenant" furniture arrive that produced the bedbugs.
owner of the place broke down and got the thermal guys to come. And I think they still had to come and do some spraying but they did get rid of them. So I didn't want to mess around. You can get multiple generations of bugs in a short period of time "trying" to get rid of them. I was lucky. The first treatment did the trick. And the 90 day guarantee was another selling point. Another reason I chose the heat treatment was that the downstairs tenant was pregnant and I didn't Air Max Thea White Mens
Some might ask why I didn't just spray. Well, I have a brother who lives in a group home who told me about the bedbug problem they had at his place. He said they came and sprayed and sprayed and could not get rid of the bugs. So the Nike Air Max Tavas Premium White
3. Any suggestions on the best methods to rid a place of bedbugs? Seems there are a number of ways.
Thanks for the links. I may print those out for my tenants too.
Before you spend hundreds, I would buy some food grade diatomaceous earth and apply it to the entire unit bed frames, mattresses, furniture, floors, electrical outlets, and anywhere else the bed bugs will nest (need to reapply for a few weeks). Also make and deploy inexpensive CO2 bed bug traps (many videos on youtube). And ensure that the tenants have mattress covers on their bed and wash all clothing in very hot water.
I have treated a few units with the above items. The tenants were very thankful and cooperative to get rid of the problem.
think it was a good idea for her to be around a bunch of bug spray.

So even though I think new guy brought them in, I can't ignore there was an infestation shortly before he arrived, It makes things ambiguous I can't in all confidence guarantee they weren't there when he moved in. So I decided to just take care of it myself. It may not be the best business move, but I feel it's the "right" thing to do Nike Air Max Thea For Girls under the circumstances. It's a small price to pay for a clear conscience. In a different scenario, I wouldn't have eaten that cost.

Very unlikely that the original infestation produced this given that the unit with the original infestation and this other unit both were free of the pests for multiple months. There would have been bites way sooner than that if the original bedbugs were still present. I suspect the new guy brought them in exactly like you said either one of his kid's backpacks, or the couch he'd been storing in his brother's garage (ok, I'm sure it's the couch). The moment he told us about the problem we were steering him down the path of paying for or splitting the cost of treatment with us and then we found out the other side had them just a few months earlier. That's when we backed off, and decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.
The other day I found out my tenants in one of our duplexes has bedbugs. He does not have the money up front to deal with it but he promises to pay me back if I pay for it.
I ended up using the thermal method to get rid of them. It was not cheap. $2000 for the 2 units. I didn't want to take a chance that those little critters would decide to move in upstairs. And I paid for the upstairs unit since I figured it was not fair to make the lady upstairs pay for it.
2. Should I craft another contract with him on this item? He claims he can pay me 200/two weeks. The guy we found to do it charges 800. Should I charge interest in the money?
I can feel for you. I had tenants who finally informed me they had bedbugs that they had tried to deal with on their own and were not successful doing so. Since it was a duplex also and I didn't want the problem spreading to the upstairs unit, I told them I would pay for it (since they couldn't afford to) and they would have to pay me back. I had them sign a promissory note stating they would pay me $100/month till they had it paid off. I used one of those credit card convenience checks and the interest rate was only 2%.
We have a bedbug case right now. It's a duplex in Delaware, OH. Long story short it's ambiguous where the bugs came from. We've only owned the place 8 months, and apparently one side was treated for bugs 9 months ago (we just learned this). It's the other side that has them now. So we're just going to pay for it both sides. I want those bedbugs gone.
