Bedbugs...an epidemic in Syracuse NY???

4 Replies

Hi Upstate NY REIs...

Just got a call from my PM that said the tenants brought in bedbugs. Apparently remediation is going to cost around $2,000 with and if I want to prevent it in the future, a $100 / month servicing contract for bedbugs. 

A. Does it really cost that much?

B. Are there any recommendations for the Syracuse area?

C. Is there really an epidemic in Syracuse?

Thanks in advance!

Forgot to mention it’s a duplex and both will be treated 3 times 5-7 days apart each time.

Seems a bit high, I would get another quote. If it's only a days work it shouldn't cost 2k.

Tom, I spent some some time in central NY about 8 years ago and bed bugs were a huge problem there than as well, a permanent regional invasion?

 Ah....thanks!  Wasn’t sure if this “epidemic” thing was a real thing.
