This is my third attempt to bring the pest problem at this apartment to your attention. We have been plagued by cockroaches for the last five months and the problem shows no sign of abating any time soon.
We have made every reasonable attempt to deal with this problem on our own. We do not leave any food out on the counters or table. We have set roach motels up in several places around the kitchen and living room. However, none of it has proved effective.
It is time to call an exterminator to deal with this problem. As our landlord, that is your responsibility. Please take care of this matter immediately. If an exterminator does not arrive within 14 days, we will be forced to report you for a health code violation.
Thank you for your prompt and understanding response to this matter.
