Bed bugs are becoming a serious issues more and more every day. In a devastating article, written by Hugh Adami for The Ottawa Citizen, Ms. Dziedziczak is a woman who was forced to live with bed bugs. Ms. Dziekdziczak is a Polish woman who speaks very little English and lives in public housing and isn’t taken seriously when it comes to bed bugs.
Ms. Dziedziczak was forced to sleep in her bathtub, on the floor, or sitting at the table wrapped in blankets after being bitten constantly from bed bugs in her bed. She even bought a new mattress but was forced to through it out as well as her couch after they became infested with bugs as well.
People claimed that her apartment was dirty, but this isn’t the case, in fact Ms. Dziedziczak is very clean. Ms. Dziedziczak has had city-hired exterminators have been to her unit about five or six times in the last 10 months and says she was ridiculed occasionally by those who came to spray her bed. They told her that she was imagining bed bugs and they weren’t real.
How horrible, those who have had bed bugs know how traumatic and stressful it can be. Imagine no one helping you or even believing you? Her sister stopped visiting because she didn’t want the bugs to follow her back home. Have questions or comments? Please share with us below.
