Tenant moved into this unit near 45th and Hamilton not knowing it was infested with mice and cockroaches. During their first night, mice were running throughout the apartment all night long. Imagine if you rented an apartment, and on your FIRST NIGHT mice came out in hoards and kept you from sleeping. Not only that, but imagine going to cook in your kitchen and finding that all your pots, pans, and cooking utensils were surrounded by mouse feces and urine. This was reality for this family. It took over four months of solid advocacy work from a church to finally get the landlord to get the infestations under some control. When pest control finally came, huge holes were found under cabinets, by the window, and in the boiler room. The family is currently reporting (February 2019) that they are still struggling with mice and cockroaches. Pictures taken November 2018 and January 2019.
