Bed Bug Panic in NYC


“Tons of people that have infestations don’t say anything and, if they are in apartments, the people next door are the ones with a complaint finally. They may not file a complaint, but they may go through the proper channels and tell the landlord or co-op board or condo owner,” said Mr. Sorkin. In 2010, there were 4,846 violations and 13,472 complaints, up slightly from 4,811 and 12,594 in 2009.

In New York, bedbug complaints are registered with the city’s 311 nonemergency hotline. The landlord is notified of the complaint and the department contacts the tenant to confirm the complaint before making a site visit where a city inspector will visually inspect the home. If bedbugs are found, a violation is issued.
