“Dear PoPville,

We live in a new “luxury” apartment building in Shaw and have had continuous mice and roach problems in our apartment since we moved in last summer. The mouse problem seems to finally be under control (fingers crossed) but it took months of emails and calls to get management to do anything about the situation. The roach problem is ongoing.

My question is – has anyone else experienced similar pest problems in a new building or elsewhere? What does it take to get management to take the problem seriously? Should we look into contacting a DC tenants’ rights association? Go crazy on social media? We like everything about where we live except for the disgusting pest problem, and would love to have this finally resolved.”
