Re: Mice Infestation - PLEASE HELP!!!

Until you can talk with an attorney and resolve that way, practically in the mean time for a cheaper solution from a friend who is an exterminator, buy some wire mesh from the hardware store and plug any 1/4 inch or large holes around pipes or elsewhere. Unlike rats, mice who do not have bony bodies only need 1/4 inch to get through. They do not have the teeth to chew through the wire mesh. I did the wire mesh in a previous apartment as they were coming in around the washing machine pipes, and problem solved though I only had a few mice. With a larger infestation this will likely help some, but it probably will not eliminate.
Do not go through the eviction route, as it will make it difficult for you to rent another place for years.
Next time searching for an apartment, check review sites such as apartmentratings.com , Google Maps Local, and Yelp for honest tenant reviews of local apartment communities. Ignore the very short positive reviews which may be posted by leasing agents.
