Ant infestation

Posted by Marta on May 09, 2000 at 20:35:35:

I live in a rent stab apartment in Manhattan. I have a terrace where I grow a wonderful garden. For several years I have been experiencing a growing problem with ants, they are all over my terrace (although I manage to keep them under control most of the year) but in the spring they start invading the interior of my my apartment. I find them everywhere, even in my cat's food and water dishes. I have demanded that the landlord to send the exterminator on a monthly basis, but whatever they use, makes no difference, the ants keep multiplying.
This year the invasion into the apartment is massive, I am constantly spraying around the terrace door and windows, have placed many ant traps but the problem persist.
What legal recourse do I have to force the landlord to take drastic exterminating measures?
Thank you for your help.
