Apartments Condemned Due to Bedbugs and Fleas

MOOSIC, Pa -- An apartment house in Lackawanna county has been condemned.

Police told us they discovered bed bugs and fleas today when they responded to a medical call at the place along Birney Avenue in Moosic.

A building inspector condemned four apartments.

Officials say the owner must have the place exterminated and re-inspected before residents can move back here in Lackawanna County.

    It’s not the landlords , It’s the renters who bring in the bedbugs/ fleas and wouldn’t work to cleanse it – Hence the eviction by condemning . Yet these people and belongings ( and bugs) will be moved to another location courtesy of our govt . stipends .

    Lackawanna county seems so nasty. I sneak a peak once in a while while driving by on 81 but that’s about it. Thank God most of my view is blocked by grown over coal piles and landfill mountains.

    Slumlords once again. Rent to section 8 pos. What do you expect, as long as he’s getting his govt checks. Fine the landlord and penalize him for a year or so. Can’t rent for that time.

        Sometimes it is renters but I remember as a kid an apartment my mom rented in a 6 apartment building being infested by roaches. She kept it as clean as humanly possible but to no avail….. we would still see roaches scurry when you put a light on. The landlord didnt care so long as you paid rent on time.
