Father slams Brighton and Hove City Council over bed bug infestation

A father of three has slammed a council for “doing nothing” about a bed bug infestation in a block of flats.

Steffen Foster, 26, who lives with his girlfriend in St James’s House in High Street, Brighton, claims his children have been covered with bite marks.

His youngest child, just two–and–a–half, has two bite lumps on his arm.

The couple moved into St James’s House in April 2013.

Last October they approached Brighton and Hove City Council about the problem but claims they have not treated the problem.

Mr Foster spent £230 of his own benefits trying to get rid of the bed bugs but it did not work.

He went back to the council and they sent out pest control experts who temporarily remedied the problem. However, the bed bugs are now back.

He said: “It is disgusting – they know the bed bugs are there.

“We had bed bugs here last year but this time the council say they are not doing it.”

He claims the council’s pest control team told him last Thursday that they knew bed bugs were in the block for five years but that clearing the infestation was “not worth our while because it is going to cost too much money”.

Mr Foster bought some bed bug solution from the council’s offices in Bartholomew Square for £15 – only to find it should only be used by professional pest controllers.

Mr Foster said: “The council has just brushed me off.

“It’s shocking. They just don’t care.”

Mr Foster used to live in a one–bed flat in Whitehawk with his girlfriend and three children, 2, 4 and 7.

He added: “We are clean people and I feel like a tramp living in this situation.

“It is my kids I feel sorry for. It’s depressing.”

It was only after The Argus photographed Mr Foster and his family yesterday that the pest control team turned up to survey the scene.

Mr Foster claims the council told him not to speak to the press.

The Argus called the council on several occasions to seek comment on the issue but they failed to respond.

Lets not jump to conclusions. Maybe he had saved the money over a long period of time. Who knows?
But lets just be cheerful instead that the Green council is going to spend £8 million on tarting up Valley Gardens and not wasting it on doing up shoddy, poor quality council housing. That would never do.

Add T tree oil to washing powder. Add it to washing up liquid and spray it everywhere. Wipe everywhere with vinegar. Lavender oil is another useful remedy., or cedar.

Or you can try to catch them by squeezing blood onto sticky tape and leaving it over night.

Perhaps you and your girlfriend should shut your mouth, get off your snatches and get a job. £230 out of your benefits, i don't even have that much to keep myself after working hard to pay for the likes of you. Scrounger!!

that will only make the bugs go to the next flat and so on. You prevent the bytes when you are in a foreign hostel, in your own home you have to ecterminate in every flat as they are said to move very fast and penetrate between floors.

I've helped someone out on benefits with bills because the benefits didn't begin to cover them. Not sure how he can have £230 spare for the bug treatment and then enough to get high as has been quoted. Though my case involved a single person and this man has 3 kids. I think its the kids that really bump up the payouts and thats why a lot of these people breed a lot.
One true case I knew of was young unmarried couple with 1 young child in a small 1 bed flat. They wanted a bigger place and had another baby solely for that purpose. Didn't want the extra child, wanted a house. Now got a house.
Unfortunately it's the sick,disabled and genuinely needy who suffer as a result of the J Kyle type scroungers who know how to play the system.

Some of these, including certain types of mosquito, are new to this country and will probably be with us for a long time, thanks to climate change. I find that I am constantly having to spray rooms with insecticides, as well as using anti-insect sprays on myself. Yet I still get bitten. It is an ongoing problem, and I doubt if the council can be held responsible for preventing or eradicating it.

It clearly states this in the Tenants Handbook.

The council is unable to do everything for its tenants and they have to take responsibility for some aspects of their lives, difficult concept though that may be for some!

Nonsense! You only have to look at them, their home, the names they have given their children, the dog, the fact they are seeking assistance for something that is their responsibility. Why can't we judge? People are judgmental and so are you! And yes bedbugs ARE associated with poor hygiene. Otherwise practically every hotel in the world would have them, but they DON'T! Hostels tend to have them!
If they don't like living in that flat, which actually enjoys an amazing location in the city centre, let them move out and go and work for a place of their own!

Thanks for your perspective on this , Bed bugs have been the curse for people and they not only suck your blood but also steal away your peace of mind. You cannot just try out any DIY to get rid of them the only best option however is to choose a good bed bug exterminator. For me Bed Bug 911 is the right choice, it has helped me a lot to get rid of this problem once for all.

Your rude comments disgust me. A young child is being bitten and you lot think that's funny and the father should get a job - if he could find a job that paid enough to support him and his family, which is highly unlikely due to minimum wage not being high enough to live on, that would not stop the bed beds infesting this block of flats.

Take your nasty comments and stick them where the sun don't shine, all you perfect people, leading perfect lives, in perfect houses and being non perfect members of the community. Check on how the old ladies dead body is decomposing in the flat, house, mansion, next to you, the old lady you haven't seen for 2 months but can't be bothered to check up on. What lovely people you all are not.
The disturbing references to decomposing bodies and your knowledge thereof are cause for concern. I suggest the Argus informs the suitable authorities of your details for further investigation.
“Decomposing bodies” yes I’m afraid the council do have these problems from time to time, We resident assesses have requested that all carer’s, cleaners and social services report back to the council any issues of unclean or unhygienic probity’s they visit i.e. one probity assessed by use had a Decomposing dog under rubbish left by the prevue’s tenant another where a male had past away and was found by his carer several days later failed to report to the council in the time they where visiting this person of unclean and unhygienic rubbish build up in the flat. So sorry it dose happy.

You gave me advice on a comma?

(Unfortunately, your attempt to identify a grammar issue in my post was not so successful - as quite obviously the sentence in question is plural and therefore requires 'are' not 'is'.)

You are wrong. Not only about my use of a comma (not totally necessary but perfectly acceptable), but this:

"(Unfortunately, your attempt to identify a grammar issue in my post was not so successful - as quite obviously the sentence in question is plural and therefore requires 'are' not 'is'.)"

Go and find, (Oxford comma) and put to good use, a spell/grammar checker.

Wait! I see what you've done here! You have succeeded in doing what any good troll does: getting a bite. You clever thing, you.
