ONLY ON 3: Apartment complex overrun with bed bugs


Wilmington, NC (WWAY) -- Residents of a Wilmington apartment complex can’t sleep tight because the bed bugs will bite.

Residents at The Pines of Wilmington say that they started noticing the problem in May and that they contacted property management.

A maintenance man was sent out to spray for the bugs but after a few days they returned and have yet to successfully be exterminated and the problem seems to be getting worse.

"The bed bugs have been getting increasingly worse and worse each day and they're going from one apartment to another,” said tenant Ife Alexander. “They're getting inside of peoples beds, peoples couches, the tenants sheets, blankets, anything that you can think of they're getting into. People are having to get rid of a lot of stuff."

Some tenants say that the problem has gotten so bad that they are moving out of The Pines of Wilmington.

WWAY contacted management at The Pines of Wilmington by phone and they say that they are aware of the problem and they have taken care of the situation.
