Tenants of downtown Portland apartment building plagued by bedbugs

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Tenants of a downtown Portland apartment building have been dealing with some very unwelcome pests – bedbugs.

David Koshuba, one of three tenants of the Vue Apartments near Portland State University that contacted FOX 12 about the pests, said he woke up one morning covered in bites, and hasn’t slept well since.

“It’s very stressful,” said Koshuba.  “I haven’t got a full night of sleep in like a month and a half, because I’ll wake up feeling like something’s on me.”

Koshuba said he contacted his building manager, who called an exterminator to treat his apartment, but the pests remain.

Koshuba said he is in the process of looking for a new apartment, and has worked out an agreement with the property manager to cancel his lease.

Neither the apartment manager nor the company that owns the building returned phone calls Monday asking for comment.
