Woman forced out of flat after nine year mice menace
A woman has left her flat after claiming nine years of problems with mice.
Jannine Brown, of Wood Green, Haringey, says that her housing association, Metropolitian Housing, has done nothing about the vermin.
Ms Brown, 29, told the Haringey Independent: “I just feel I’m being ignored by them [Metropolitian]. They just do the same thing each time, all they do is lay down some traps and fill in the holes in the walls with wire wool. But the mice just come back every time."
Ms Brown and her four-year-old daughter have now moved into her mother's house, after she saw a mouse leap up in her lounge.
She reports finding droppings in her daughter's bed and wires that had been chewed through.
A spokesperson for Metropolitan said: “We are sorry Ms Brown is experiencing problems with mice at her property. We have a contract in place for the treatment of pests on the estate and visits are carried out every month to all properties where we can gain access.
"Ms Brown has recently reported that she is experiencing a bad infestation of mice. Since receiving this complaint we have arranged for the pest contractor to carry out additional visits and a further visit is scheduled for this week.
"We are having an ongoing dialogue with Ms. Brown around this issue in order to resolve this matter as soon as possible.”
