    Which I think may be the case - bedbugs take a lot of expertise, and most government agencies not dealing with housing won't have it.

    Plus, I don't know if they own the building, or it's leased space in NYC. In that case, it's probably being done through the building ownership which adds another layer to the mix.

    MSDS info is a good bet - but requests for it have not been met to date.

      with Fed sub-contract, which required it on file. You might check with whatever agency is in charge of buildings/grounds on the state level.
      Good luck.
      I managed to stop the spraying in my room. Pitched a big fit, and took the students to another location for that night's activities. They agreed that if I saw any bugs, I'd let them know.
      Bedbugs are a whole different ball game though. They mostly sprayed for roaches at my place.
      Best of luck to ye.
      ?Wear a respirator until they tell you what they are spraying?

      asking the company directly? If they wear uniforms, you'd be able to see who they are. Or if not, surely the guy spraying would tell you who they work for.
