Bedbugs Overrun Canoga Park Apartment Building, Owners Do Nothing
Residents of an apartment complex in Canoga Park say that their homes are overrun with bedbugs, but that the managers of the building refuse to do anything about it.
KTLA reports that at the Riata Luxury Apartment Homes, which is located in the 8500 block of De Soto Avenue, a number of tenants have scars and bites all over their bodies. They say that they've asked the owners to clear out the infestation but to no avail.
Meanwhile, the onsite manager gave the news site the following nonsensical answer when they asked her about whether anything was being done about the bugs.
"That's not true, and I refuse, that's not true," she said, then amended her answer:
"I didn't say it's not true...If there are any, we scheduled and they refused the service and we have proof of that."
That should calm the residents' minds.
