OK. Henderson has a serious problem. 500 Broadway (Henderson Housing) is evicting tenants because of BED BUGS. If you have not read up on these things they are really serious and almost impossible to get rid of. All these tenants will be moving into rent houses and apartments all over town with their bed bugs in their belongings!! These "bugs" will move from house to house on their person, in their furniture and on their pets..If a house is sprayed for them, the spray does not kill them-they simply migrate to another "host" house. I'm sure this post might get alot of rude comments, but please do your research first.. These things are really serious and can even live in your walls. If you are renting homes / apartments - you might think twice if their last address is anywhere close to Broadway..

Please note: Henderson Housing Authority has NOT evicted anyone due to bed bugs. The majority of our evictions are due to non-payment of rent. We recommend doing a landlord verification before leasing any rental property as we do here at the Housing Authority. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Housing Authority, please come by our office at 817 W. Main St. in Henderson.

OK, I had posted another comment about these bed bugs infesting our town and it was taken down! Henderson seriously needs to read about this. The city has been contacted and they know nothing about the "city housing" having bed bugs. Yet you ask the tenants of 500 Broadway and they will tell you just how bad they are. Therefore what does that tell you! The people running the housing for 500 Broadway are not reporting the situation... If you read about these pests, they do not go away. Just last week many rooms in a hospital were isolated due to bed bugs. Google it for yourself. It says that you can even get them from the spine of books that have been in an affected house, waiting rooms, dr. offices, and movie theaters. I don't have a problem what so ever reporting it to the health department, if someone could get me a #. The only # listed on the website got me no where.. Everyone said it needed to be handled on a local level. When the "local" health department was called, they couldn't tell me who I would need to speak to... These things go from person to person.. so someone in your child's class room could have them even on their backpack, and drop in the classroom or onto your child's back pack. Look how easily children can bring home lice from others at school.. These things transfer much easier than lice and are far more dangerous to your health and your home. It cost anywhere from $700.00 -$4,000.00 to treat for these bed bugs. Something needs to be done..

Yes they have been reported to the appropriate people and we have treated each tenants apartment that had bed bugs, which included the tenants disposing of the majority of their property to the dump grounds. Please note that we have done extensive research on bed bugs. Bed bugs are everywhere! Choose wisely were you purchase your items from especially garage sales and second hand stores. Adults & Kids carry them on shoes, backpacks, clothes, etc... Please feel free to come by our office at 817 W. Main St. in Henderson for any information. It was just by chance that we came across this forum.
