I live in a row home that I own in Philadelphia, and have been battling bed bugs for about a year. In the last year, my boyfriend and I have done the following treatments - one exterminator that came 3 separate times (spraying and putting down dust). When that didn't work, we got a new exterminator, who heated treated the entire house, not once, but TWICE. That last treatment was in July, and we just discovered that the bugs came back. Heat treatment is the most effective treatment, and he heated the house to 130 degrees for 3 hours. All bugs should have been dead permanently. This has cost us over $2000 out of pocket for treatment, and we are back to where we started!
Since we live in a rowhome, and have done above and beyond to get treatment and keep from being reinfected, we suspect that the neighbors may have bugs. We want to know what our rights are in regards to them and if they are causing the bed bug re-infestation.
