What would you do with nearly $19 million bucks to throw away? Probably not spend it on an entire block that has a history of bug infestations and multiple fires, right?

In case you are down for it though, its currently on the market and up for grabs.

Thats right, Four separate but close properties in Parkdale Village are officially on sale for reportedly $18,750,000.

Colliers, a real-estate agency in Canada, listed the multi-family buildings on their site.

According to them, the property presents investors with an opportunity to acquire four separate properties, totaling 62 suites + 2 office suites, the agency said.

This is a unique opportunity to reposition an apartment building in downtown Toronto.

Seemingly every property on sale (2, 4, 6, and 8 Laxton Avenue) has a bit of a rough history.

BlogTO reports that one of the properties, a building with 52 units, has a record of bed bugs and roach infestations.

Thats not all, 4 Laxton Avenue also has a past following a big fire in January.

The Parkdale Residents Association (PRA) noted that this was actually the third major fire on Laxton Avenue in Parkdale in just one year alone.

Do you think these properties shouldnt be judged for their past and that a new owner can change things around? Or is the price range just unacceptable?

Paul Bhekimpilo Tshuma has lived in the same Montreal apartment building for 14 years. Heis able to get around-the-clock care thereand he saysthe location is perfect.But the 12-storey, 105-unit residential complex, which has a mix of subsidized housing and high-end suites, was sold a couple of years ago and things have been going downhill ever since, Tshuma said."With the new owner, the difference is that you make a report, it's not taken seriously. You can call 50 million times and it's never taken seriously," he said.Climate control is his main concern. The lack of air conditioning in July was a problem and more recently, it's been the unreliable heating system, he said. The heating first broke down during a cold snap this fall, and then again for a couple weeks in January, he said.

"It's working for now," said Tshuma, who uses a wheelchair to get around. "I don't know how long it's going to last."

Tshuma said he needs an easy-to-control, independent heating and cooling system because of his disability, but that thespace heater his landlord provided in the interim was not sufficient because he was unable to manage the temperature on his own.

Patrick Lefebvre also lives in the building and benefits from the 24-hour care staff provided by the local public heath agency. He said the space heater provided by the landlord while he waits for his heating system to be fully repaired is too small and inefficient

"On and off for five months," he said. "I'm getting sick, physically sick."

The building is located in Montreal's east end at 1951 de Maisonneuve Boulevard, not far from the Papineau Metro station in the city's Gay Village. When CBC News stopped by to interview tenants, several complained about the building's condition, saying there are problems ranging from heating to bed bugs.

The property, bought byGreyspringApartments, an asset management firm,in December 2020, is being managed by Cogir Immobilier. A spokesperson for Cogir says it is trying to address the issues as quickly as possible.

Brigitte Pouliot said Cogir discovered a lot of regular maintenance work was left undone by the previous owner and steps are being taken to make the needed repairs.

"We have been working on the heating issues for several months now and have been proactive at providing temporary heat to all tenants affected by the problem," said Pouliot in a statement, noting each apartment has its own independent heating system.

"Unfortunately, the pandemic has created a huge shortage of mechanical parts required to fix the issue."She said Cogir understands it is not pleasant for tenants, and "we are working as hard as we can with our supplier to resolve the issue as soon as possible. We truly hope that the tenants will understand and be patient."

When it comes to bedbugs, she said they are very hard to get rid of, and while Cogir is doing its part by treating the affected units, dealing with an infestation requires tenants to do their part as well, for example, by washing all their clothes in hot water.The building is secure and kept clean, she said, and a new regional director has been hired who is "very proactive. Our objective is to resolve any issues as quickly as possible and to the tenants'satisfaction."

Some tenants, Lefebvre included, told CBC News that they feel the new management wants to push them out of the low-cost units, but Pouliot said that's not part of Cogir's business model and the company wants tenants to stay.

Housing lawyer Julien Delangie said there are stepstenants can take to get help in cases like this.

For example, the first step is to call 311 and ask the city for help. An inspector will visit the building, issue a warning and potentially a fine to the landlord.

Going to Quebec'srental board, theTribunal administratif du logement, is also an option, he said, but even a high-priority case can takeweeks or even months to be heard.

"The rules that are in place do not adequately protect the tenants from such situations, in my opinion," he said.

Lefebvre said he's working with his social worker to try and address the problem.

"I just want my heat back. That's the only thing I want. I love my apartment. I just want my heat," he said.

Mlanie Dallaire, a spokesperson for Montreal, said the city has received complaints from tenants about the heating in the building.

"The Ville-Marie borough took action without delay. Following the inspection process, the owner was notified by the inspector and had to take immediate action to correct the situation," she said.

On Tuesday, the inspector learned the heating has been fixed and the complaints stopped, she said. She said there were no complaints about pests, such as bedbugs, since September 2021, and none were observed during inspections.

In February 2021, Black in Ento hosted a week of virtual events and gatherings to build community and connection, and organizers also raised money to support a grant program. Five $1,000 grants were awarded to exceptional Black scholars in the field of entomology in 2021, and the awards are part of a community-led movement to provide adequate resources, mentorship, and access to student entomologists of color.

The grants are sponsored by BASF, Corteva, the Entomological Society of Canada, and the Entomological Society of America, as well as individual donors. For more information on the organizations work, follow #blackinento on Twitter or the BlackInEnto YouTube channeland check out the amazing recipients of the 2021 Black in Ento Student Prizes below.

Kyla OHearn

Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA

Kyla OHearn was a senior majoring in animal sciences at the University of Kentucky when she took a general entomology course that would change the trajectory of her career. Now, she studies the taxonomy, systematics, and ecology of Hawaiian drosophilids. She says that approximately one-third of the vinegar fly family Drosophilidae are exclusive to Hawaii, where they enjoy close relationships with about 40 percent of Hawaiis native plants. Since a lot of these plants are endangered, many of the Hawaiian drosophilids are endangered as well.

OHearn says the highly specialized flies are often misunderstood, and she hopes her work will generate data that support conservation efforts: When I tell people I study fruit flies, they immediately say, Oh, well I have some in my kitchen that you can look at. So, not many people know there is so much diversity within Drosophilidae and that the majority of those found in Hawaii are not considered pests.

OHearns favorite insects are bed bugs. I think its really fascinating that there is an insect that has so closely coevolved with us that theyre such a successful endoparasite, she says. Theyre, unfortunately, really remarkable at what they do, but, despite being such notorious pests, they are not known to transmit any diseases, and about one-third of people dont even react to them.

Diana Omoke

Kenya Medical Research Institute, Kisumu, Kenya

During Diana Omokes undergraduate studies at Kenyatta University, a three-month industrial attachment at Kenya Medical Research Institute provided the opportunity to work in an entomology lab and inspired her passion for working with malaria vectors. Omokes research has shown important differences in the microbial communities associated with insecticide-resistant Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes. She says these microbes (especially bacteria from the genera Sphingobacterium, Rubrobacter, Lysinibacillus, and Streptococcus) could serve as early warning system for monitoring insecticide resistance.

Omoke was excited to share her findings in a peer-reviewed journal as well as at international conferences, including the Pan African Mosquito Control Association Virtual Vector Conference and the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 68th Annual Meeting.

Mosquitoes are Omokes favorite insects. There is this quote [from the Dalai Lama] that says, If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito. These are tiny creatures that are capable of ruining your sleep. Also, as tiny as they are, they can cause an impact in the community in terms of malaria transmission, Omoke says. Coming from a malaria-endemic region and working as an entomologist, I have learned a lot about mosquitoes and am working in groups whose common goal is to alleviate malaria morbidity and mortality cases.

Suleiman Mustapha

University of Ilorin, Nigeria, and Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bengaluru, India

Suleiman Mustapha found his love for entomology during the first undergraduate entomology lecture he attended. I was so fascinated to learn about the things insects could do, such as build castles, tend to their own farms, make paper, control agricultural pestsand some groups having a society of their own with the different castes executing specific duties, he says. He also learned that the number of entomologists was dwindling in Nigeria and wanted to change that.

Now, Mustapha studies crop protection, using honey bees to detect heavy metals and pesticides in the environment as well as to predict the level of those contaminants in bee-pollinated food crops before harvest. So far, hes found that the African native honey bee Apis mellifera adansonii is useful for detecting contaminants tied to agricultural intensifications and overuse of persistent pesticides. He says the most exciting part of his work is receiving an international grant to expand his study and offer a possible solution for sustainable agriculture. Plus, he enjoys working at the intersection of entomology and chemical ecology.

Mustaphas favorite insects are wasps because they are valuable in agricultural pest control. Unfortunately, they are one of the most misunderstood insects, as they have been mistaken to only cause nuisances in some places and are not entirely recognized for the ecological services they provide, he says. I am also reminded that, when I was very young, growing up, I was in an environment with lots of mud dauber wasps. Observing them build mud nests on buildings and flying with insect larvae was a part of my childhood. Since then, having more knowledge about insects has made me appreciate them even more.

Seun Oladipupo

Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama, USA

Seun Oladipupos childhood experiences inspired him to pursue a career in entomology: I grew up in Nigeria with no (silver) spoon. As I watched sick friends and family turn to plants as a panacea in my childhood, I imagined that I could uncover the science behind it. But, as I grew up, I discovered insects were mostly responsible for these sicknesses. As existing insect control strategies are not always sufficient, safe, and sustainable, I turned to safer options that are not only novel but efficient and sustainable.

Oladipupos interest in the use of natural products and endosymbionts to manage pests led him to his Ph.D. research, which looks at using essential oils to help manage urban insects like the German cockroach (Blattella germanica). He reports that factors like vapor pressure and molecular weight make a difference when it comes to an essential oils toxicity and that these compounds can be used to help suppress cockroach populations because they reduce the cockroachs reproductive fitness. Hes also looking at endosymbionts like the reproductive parasite Wolbachia. Ultimately, my research seeks to contribute to the US pest management industry by providing alternatives to synthetic pesticides, creating environmentally conscious pest management tools, providing solutions for public health pests, and creating affordable options, he says.

Oladipupos favorite insects are butterflies and moths, which he calls illusionists because they are beautiful yet their larvae can wreak havoc on crops.

JEGEDE Oluwasegun John

University of Science and Technology of China, Anhui, China

JEGEDE Oluwasegun John planned to study biochemistry in college but found himself immersed in the biology of insects that are agricultural pests or medically important through the lens of storage techniques and integrated pest management.

As a Ph.D. student, JEGEDE screens bioactive compounds in ethnobotanicals for pest control applications. Hes identified several phytochemicals from two medicinal plants that are bioactive against the beetle Callosobruchus chinensis and is using molecular docking and other bioinformatics tools to screen the phytochemicals against molecular targets like proteins. The goal is to design an eco-friendly pesticide thats biodegradable and sustainable.

JEGEDEs favorite insect is the honey bee. Bees are highly industrious, making them a beneficial social insect, he says. Although they are known to sting their active roles of making honey and cross-pollination are so significant to human sustainability. I love the honey they produce, being a natural product with no expiry date or shelf life. With these qualities, I can boldly affirm that the honey bee is my most adorable insect.

Dubliners could see a surge in some pests, including bed bugs, as Covid restrictions ease, experts have warned.

A recent report revealed that infestations were on the rise as the city reopened after lockdown, with a further increase in pests expected leading into the summer.

Furthermore, an increase in travel could see the spread of bed bugs.

Rodents, wasps, and garden ants topped the list of pests that Rentokil pest control was called out to handle last year in Ireland.

Dublin accounted for the majority of pest callouts in 2021, with 42% of the overall calls coming from Dublin followed by Cork (12%), Kildare (6%) Galway (5%) and Limerick (4%).

As normal summer activity resumes, Dubs should expect to see an increase in summer pests such as wasps, warns Rentokil.

Richard Faulkner, Advanced Technical Field Consultant for Rentokil said: "As lockdown measures were eased in the summer and people socialised more, especially outdoors, this saw greater interaction between the public and pests, particularly wasps who would have benefitted greatly from outdoor socialising.

"With the relaxation of public health restrictions, it is expected that an increase in pest activity will occur and as we get back to normal levels of social activity there will be greater opportunities for them."

There were also recent warnings for Dubs to watch out for fleas as the capital accounts for one of the highest level of callouts in Ireland.

The "wingless bloodsucking insects" can attach to pets or people and can lead to bites or skin irritation - or in the worst cases can also cause allergic reactions to sensitive individuals, transmit tapeworm and, in very rare cases, even transmit serious diseases.

They most often bite people around the ankles and legs, and their bites can be are felt immediately and can be sore for as much as a week.

Most people who are bitten by bed bugs experience symptoms that include irritation, sores, or itchiness. But how should bed bug bites be treated and can they be prevented?

There are several ways of reducing the chances of getting bites, while the treatment options include good hygiene and antihistamines.

This article explores bed bug bite treatment and prevention methods in detail.

Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that feed on human blood.

While they are a public health concern, bed bugs are not known to transmit disease through their bites.

Bed bugs use a small tube-like structure called a proboscis to pierce the skin and drink a persons blood. The pests are most active when humans are asleep, during the night and early morning.

An estimated one in five Americans have personally dealt with a bed bug infestation or knows someone who has encountered the pests.

Bed bugs can bite anywhere on the body where there is skin. Typically, bites tend to occur on areas exposed during sleeping, such as:

Many people do not feel the bite itself or develop clear symptoms other than the dots where the bug bit and some minor, surrounding inflammation and irritation. Others are considered hypersensitive to bites and develop more severe symptoms.

In most cases symptoms occur more or less immediately after the bite, but they can develop or progress over the following days as well. Without further irritation, symptoms typically resolve after a week or so.

Almost all bed bug bites will produce some degree of discomfort, typically itchiness and inflammation. Other signs and symptoms of bed bug bites include:

Individual characteristics of the bugs bite and the person who is bitten also influence the resulting sore.

While fairly rare, some people have or develop severe reactions and symptoms from bed bug bites. Serious symptoms that require medical attention include:

Living with bed bugs can cause additional health complications:

There are relatively few treatments options when it comes to uncomplicated bed bug bites.

The first recommended line of treatment involves cleaning the wound, ideally with soap and water.

For itchy bites, the following may relieve minor symptoms:

Most wounds heal on their own within a week, sometimes two.

If severe swelling, inflammation, or itchiness occurs or persists, a person should seek medical attention.

A dramatic immune response may be a sign of an allergic reaction. If this is the case, one of the following may need to be administered:

If infection occurs, antibiotics may be prescribed.

Severe itchiness may result in further complications, such as infection or scarring. If severe itching is experienced, people may be prescribed corticosteroid creams and antihistamine pills or liquid.

One way to help prevent exposure and potential infestations by bed bugs is to be able to recognize bed bugs and distinguish them from other pests.

In a 2017 study, some 35 percent of polled American business travellers and 28 percent of leisure travellers were unable to tell a bed bug apart from other household pests.

Common characteristics of nymphs (young bed bugs) include:

The nymphs are easier to see if they have just feed when the blood fills their abdomen, giving it a reddish brown color.

Adult bed bugs are typically far easier to spot than nymphs. Identifiable characteristics of most adult bed bugs include:

Controlling bed bugs needs the identification and complete removal or destruction of the pests eggs.

On average, one female can produce at least 345 eggs over her lifetime. Egg-laying females often increase the volume and frequency of feeding to support their brood.

Common characteristics and signs of bed bug eggs include:

The key to preventing bed bug bites is to stop the insects entering, feeding, and breeding in human environments.

In the daytime, bed bugs often seek refuge in the cracks and crevices of furniture, flooring, walls, and mattresses.

The seams and folds of upholstered furniture can also offer an ideal hiding place. Bed bugs have been known to persist in vacuum canisters or units.

The insects tend to pick hiding spots near human sleeping quarters, including bedrooms. Bed bugs found in other rooms are usually a sign of a severe infestation.

Areas where bed bug infestations commonly occur include:

Items commonly responsible for spreading bed bugs include:

Bed bugs do not have a preference between sanitary, messy, or unsanitary conditions.

They can, however, be found at higher rates in places, such as hotels, if infestations are not properly cleared.

Home tips for preventing, controlling, and clearing bed bug infestations include:

In severe or persistent cases, furniture or infected items may need to be destroyed, ideally by burning.

Bed bug bites: What you need to know - Medical News Today

Posted by: Mr Bed Bug in Canada Bed Bugs on February 3rd, 2022

From your mattress and box spring to your carpet and baseboards, bed bugs can nest almost anywhere in your home.

In fact, many bed bug infestations occur within a few feet of their food source (humans), like near a bed or other close furniture. And because of their small size, they can hide in crevices as tiny as nail indentations in your wall. As a result, these pests can be very difficult to get rid of.

Successfully getting rid of bed bugs relies on early detection, proper preparedness and correct treatment methods. One such method is heat treatment, which may be appropriate in cases where a home, apartment, or hotel room is heavily infested. Heat treatment much less whole-house heat treatment is typically only used as a last resort when other more appropriate methods may be more suitable.

While a professional will determine the best course of treatment once a bed bug problem has been diagnosed, it can be helpful to better understand what heat treatment may entail, if it is an option that your bed bug professional recommends.

Prices for bed bug heat treatments can vary, depending on factors such as the type of heat treatment used, the size of your home, and the severity of the bed bug infestation. A bed bug control professional will be able to visit your property to provide a customized estimate based on the situation.

Bed bugs die when exposed to high temperatures for an extended period. If performed properly, heat treatment for bed bugs can be a highly effective procedure.

When bed bug control professionals do a full-room heat treatment, the temperature in your home rises to as much as 145 F. Rather than heating the entire house, Terminix professionals use targeted heat in the form of steam in infested areas, alongside other techniques to kill bed bugs.

During a bed bug heat treatment, industrial-sized electric heaters are used to maintain high levels of heat to help ensure all bed bugs are eliminated. The entire process can be completed in about 69 hours. there are, in some instances, cool spots where some bed bugs may look to in order to escape the heat and survive.

While whole room heat treatments can take hours, the temperature isn't high enough to cause permanent damage to the structure of your house.

Although heat treatment can be quite effective when done by a professional and under the right circumstances, it's important that all people, pets, plants, and heat-sensitive items be removed from the treated area for several hours. Your bed bug control professional will advise you when it is safe to return to your home, as well as advise you on safely returning objects that were removed prior to heat treatment.

The majority of items in your home can probably handle the temperature of a bed bug heat treatment. However, some things must be removed, including:

Before heat treatment begins, talk to your bed bug control professional to figure out what items can stay put throughout the process. Vulnerable items can be placed in storage bins and left outside your house for the duration of the treatment. Let your bed bug control professional know about these items, as they may need to inspect and treat them separately to ensure you don't reintroduce bed bugs into your home.

Other steps you can take to help protect items from bed bug heat treatment are:

Another treatment method used to control a bed bug problem is the use of a hot box. A hot box uses sustained heat to get rid of bed bugs on items like shoes, clothing, linen and even luggage.

While you can perform spot-treatments to kill bed bugs on infested items such as clothing and bedding by running them through a 30-minute cycle at the highest heat setting in a clothes dryer, this will only kill bed bugs on infested items. Although this is an important part of a system of bed bug control solutions, it will not control a bed bug issue by itself.

Generally, a dryer is used for clothing and linens while a heat chamber is used for the things that you can't put into a dryer. Lethal temperatures for bed bugs range from 118122F. To help kill bed bugs in all their life cycle stages, hot boxes reach a higher temperature than this lethal range.

When using a hot box, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions to the letter, making sure to pay attention to everything from heat sources to proper ventilation. Not doing so could result in fires or damage to your belongings. The same goes for using your dryer to kill bed bugs: Make sure items are dryer safe before attempting this method.

Technically, yes. Steam is another form of heat that can help kill adult bed bugs along with their larvae and eggs. However, the types of steamers that most people have access to (carpet cleaners or clothes steamers) don't reach high enough temperatures to effectively kill bed bugs, which is why it is important to look to a bed bug control expert, as they have access to professional-grade equipment that is more effective.

Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to get rid of. If you think you have bed bugs in your home, don't wait to contact a bed bug control professional. An experienced Terminix technician can evaluate your home and help determine the best course of treatment to help kill bed bugs.

No babies

And no bedbugs.

Rest assured, thats a big deal for Team Walker at the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Big in that Laura Walker and the Albertans are one big happy family for the national curling championship.

And big in that they are getting the sleep that it takes to finally break through for the big one in Thunder Bay.

Cant complain, said Walker on Tuesday after a big 11-5 triumph over Yukon in the morning draw moved Alberta to 3-2 in the jam-packed Scotties standings. We know we have some work to do to pick up our play a little bit, but overall, we feel good and ready to keep going.

But no bedbugs, and especially right now with a bye (Tuesday night), we are able to rest.

The Scotties field has come to learn theres no sleeping on Walker & Co.

Thats because the Albertans have been slowly on the rise.

Their 3-4 eye-opener in a first-time trip to the nationals two years gave way to 2021s third-place finish in Calgary, when the rink from Edmontons Saville Community Sports Centre was met by but, for the most part, overcame many restless moments.

Never mind the strangeness of the bubble itself.

There were baby challenges, as well.

One was the absence of lead Nadine Scotland for the Scotties, as she elected to skip bubble life during COVID concerns while being pregnant for the first time.

Another was the day/night business at hand for Walker herself, as she brought her baby boy into the safe-zone at WinSport.

But neither issue is in play this year.

For sure, the sleep will be nice, but its a long time to be away from him, said Walker of being apart from young Liam for this championship. This will be the longest we will be apart.

Indeed, its a different Scotties for the skip.

Not that it was a nightmare last year not even close. Walker found her way as both a mother and a true curling contender at the same time.

When I was at the hotel with Liam, I was Mom, and as soon as I stepped into our pre-game meeting, I was curler, and the only way I could do it and stay sane was to just switch back and forth, Walker said. And I think that really helped me out on the ice. I was able just to be 100% there and know that my little guy was back in the hotel after the game and had no idea what happened out on the ice.

What happened, of course, was a gutty run of six straight wins, including in a tiebreaker over Manitoba legend Jennifer Jones, to reach the semifinal.

Even though the Albertans lost to 9-3 to Kerri Einarson to fall shy of the final, with the bronze effort signalling their arrival as a bona fide contender on the Scotties scene.

Dare to dream this year in Thunder Bay then?

Obviously, it can really suck to keep knocking and not have the door open, said Walker, referring to not yet reeling in a big prize despite their ascent to curling contention. But we just really have stayed true to who we are as a team and supporting each other and to the process that we believe will get us there. And eventually we started seeing some success, and that becomes really encouraging when you do start to see that success to just keep doing what youre doing.

And hopefully if you do knock loud enough, the door will open.

Of course, theyre hoping that happens this weekend.

But to get there, Alberta really needs another run like last year. A third loss, with Wednesdays contest against Nova Scotia the next game on the schedule, would put a big dent in their playoff hopes.

All this after coming into these Scotties believing they had hit their stride.

Nadine had her little guy, Colby, so she was away for a little while, Walker said. So when she came back, we had a little relearning to do there for awhile, so we had a dip in the middle of the season there. Now that shes been back for awhile, weve been firing on all cylinders and are really comfortable and starting to play better and better.

Looking back, I wish we couldve peaked at the Olympic trials.

But that week in late November seemed to work against the Walker crew, too.

The challenges thrown at them at the Roar of the Rings in Saskatoon ranged from bedbugs in their hotel rooms to emergency dental surgery mid-event for second Taylor McDonald. And third Kate Cameron missed a game while being quarantined in her room for a few days with a stomach flu.

It was like anything you wanted to throw at us that week was thrown at us, said Walker of an underwhelming 3-5 Olympic trials. I dont think any of that affected how we played on the ice. It just wasnt our week unfortunately. I think we learned a lot from that.

Perhaps just in time to make it work for them in Thunder Bay.

We certainly peaked at provincials (in early January) and had a really great week there and felt we were never out of it in our minds, and I think thats a huge thing that we just really believe we can win every game, Walker added. were going into it with a mind-set that our main goal is to win the event. And were playing with a lot of confidence right now because of our experience as a team over the last few years. Were starting to play better and better and hanging in there with the best of them.
