Whatever money you think you're saving buying used furniture would be wiped out if you get bed bugs. I got them from moving into an infested apartment in NYC, and it's easily cost me $2,500 to rid myself of them. (BTW in NY the landlord is required to exterminate, but not many will deal with it properly, or they are in denial about it.) It's not that big an issue in Chicago, YET. But, I see from the Bed Bug Registry that there's a growing bedbug problem on the northeast side, from Rogers Park to Lincoln Park, and also in the Loop.
