‘Raging’ bedbug infestation at Iowa senior living apartment complex leads to lawsuit: ‘Pay special attention’

Tenants of the Walnut Court apartments, a large senior living complex in Waterloo, Iowa, have filed a class-action lawsuit against the owners due to what they claim has been a years-long bed bug infestation.

The suit was filed by Theresa Allen, a current tenant, and Gary Montgomery, a former tenant, on behalf of all tenants who have lived on the property since the issue began, as reported by the Iowa Capital Dispatch.

The lawsuit claims that a “raging, unabated bedbug infestation” has been in effect at the 91-unit apartment complex since 2018.

To ensure complete removal, chemical treatments with pesticides are often necessary. 

Experts recommend hiring a professional exterminator who has treated locations for bedbugs in the past.
