Bedbugs discovered in Mountain View apartments

Original post made on Jan 19, 2011

After infesting East Coast beds with a vengeance, bedbugs are beginning to jump into bed with West Coast residents, including some who live in Mountain View.

What are possible ailments/disorders that could be caused by bedbugs or molds (now that cell tower issues have been put to rest)?

I lived at Avalon at Crackside for 10 months, it was the worst place I have ever lived, and I have lived in at least 17 different places in my 33 years of existence. This place is a total crap hole, I am not surprised about the bedbugs, who knows what else is there. The location is excellent, the land value must be extremely high.

When I lived at this Avalon, I almost slipped on the mold that is all over the wooden staircases. It could have been really really bad.
