1. Ask your landlord to get rid of the bed bugs in your apartment
Contact your landlord directly and ask them to fix your bed bug problem. If nothing changes, call 311 and say “apartment maintenance”, or report the issue online. If you live in Public Housing, you can contact NYCHA at 718-707-7771 to make a report.
Your landlord is legally required to get rid of the bed bugs. They also have to make sure the bugs don’t re-infest your apartment or the apartments of your neighbors. It’s your landlord’s responsibility to fix this problem within 30 days. Even if the bed bugs are in a neighboring apartment, your landlord must take steps to make sure they don’t infest yours.
