Filimon Perez never intended to live with roommates when he moved into his north Lubbock apartment. But for the past seven months, he's had a full house.
"I would sit up and there were like thousands of them on my back. I didn't know what they were," said Perez.
They're bed bugs, an infestation Perez never knew he had.
"I moved into this apartment and they had just cleaned it up, but he never did tell me that they have bed bugs," said Perez.
And because Perez his blind, he couldn't see them, but felt them biting.
"I thought it was like mosquitoes or something like," said Perez.
A housekeeper, who only started working for Perez for three months, made the discovery.
"And I pulled the bed back and there were bed bugs all over his sheets in the mattress, on his clothes, everything," said Pam Bridges.
Since then, Pam Bridges has been unsuccessful getting ride of the bugs.
"I bleached everything for him and they're still here," said Bridges.
So far, a home remedy is the only help he's received from his landlord.
"He brought me some alcohol. Well alcohol only got them drunk. And you know after a party, everyone wants to chow down and they did on me," said Perez.
The landlord has also offered to refund his money, but not until after he moves out. Perez said he needs the money first, in order to find somewhere else to live. So until something is worked out, Perez won't be moving.
