Here is a link to a Bed Bug Oven... Looks like a good investment if you travel a lot...

My folks moved into a complex in NJ years ago and
all their furniture and bedding had to be treated
by licensed pest control company, with written proof,
before they were permitted to move the furniture inside.

Each apartment's rooms, walls and everything inside get baked at 150 degrees for at least four hours to kill any bugs.
Probably best to remove any candles prior to this. I'd love to see what is used to create that amount of heat for that long.

Some of the more common dispersal mechanisms include overnight stays in bed bug infested quarters, the purchase of infested furniture (rental furniture, used/second hand furniture, reconditioned mattresses etc.), the acquisition of discarded items that are infested, and migration of bed bugs from one infested dwelling to another in multi-occupancy settings (apartments, college housing, medical facilities, senior communities etc.)

They should have been on a contract with a "bug" company for prevention. With a property were people come and go, this i recomend highly. Terminx even has a "Bed Bug DOG"!! Her name is Rue and she is awesome.

Owners of any apartments should invest and have the buildings exterminated at least every 3 months.

People bring these in to their apartments from somewhere else. Usually it is when they go for a stay at a home or motel/hotel that has an infestation. They will get in your suitcase in your clothes and then come home with you. they usually do not travel on the person. I have a brother-in-law that travels a lot for business. He actually bought this "ove like" device that he keeps in the garage. When he come home, he puts his un-opened suitcase in this thing that heats it up and keeps it hot for long enough to kill any if they are in it. He doesn't even bring it in the house or open it until this has been done. They are expensive and very difficult to get rid of once you get them.

I think the apartments around here need to seriously take control of their problems and call the pest control.
