NYC's Most Bed Bug Infested Buildings in 3Q22

November 1, 2022 | 4 minute read | the RENT BETTA team, a website saving renters thousands of dollars with no fee apartments available directly from building owners and leasing offices, announces the Worst Infested Buildings in NYC for 3Q22.

To make it on the list, a building has to have 10 or more units, all of which report a bed bug infestation to NYC’s office of Housing Preservation & Development.  

Some buildings immediately treat all units and report no re-infestations, while other buildings are less responsible and let problems linger.  If you find bed bugs in your apartment, immediately notify your landlord, who is required by law to hire an exterminator at no cost to you.

On, users can research their next apartment by typing in any NYC residential address and see its Maintenance Rating and Bed Bug History.

In 3Q22, there are 13 buildings in NYC where all the units report a bed bug infestation.
