I can t get an exterminator in to investigate until Monday, as it is Friday. My sister came in there with me this evening to look around and she found what look like carpet beetle larvae everywhere, on my box spring, under all my area rugs, between the wooden slats of the hard wood floors, on my couch, outside my apartment door in thehallway carpet. We saw about ten In total, but it s late and we were too creeped out to stay so we left. I don t know what to do right now, I collected a specimen and will go take it to an exterminator tomorrow morning to get confirmation as it is already late Friday night. I am mortified and missed school today, now I m staying at my sisters. How long do you think this has been going on? I lived with my sister before I moved there last month, there is nothing in her place so I didn t bring them from my old place. I don t want to live there anymore and then the cost of exterminating and my lease. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
What you want & what is legal are not the same thing. The fact of the matter is you will be responsible for pest control & what ever lease break fee was stated in the lease. Only way out of paying pest control is to have proof you did not bring them in. The landlord is not responsible for the cost in replacing any personal items either.
You would have noticed them very soon after moving in so you or someone brought them from somewhere.
Bedbugs don't look like carpet beetle larvae. Carpet beetles eat fibers in rugs, they're not dangerous and don't go after clothing if you have clean washed items not laying around on the floor in a heap. A standard vacuum gets rid of those.
When I rented, the price of an exterminator was covered by the landlord (we had cockroaches after a tenant moved in downstairs). First get an identification of the bugs – you need that first. Have an estimate as to how much it would cost to fix the issue at the apartment. If there are several units in your building, they'll all need to be fumigated.
Renters insurance would cover damaged property of yours, do you have it?
Bedbugs wouldn't require the elimination of much in your place – do some online research.
this is why you should look deeply around an apartment before you settle in…
it may have come from your personal furniture or be in the apartment from the start..
but you can report it to the owner or find a way to cancel your contract without having to pay for the breach of contract
I know that, my point is that this place was clearly already infested, and I don't want to live there anymore and I shouldn't be held responsible for the fumigation and then the replacement of my belongings, and how do I approach my landlord.
Did you even Google how to clean up them ?
