      I wish to inform you that under Chapter 83 Section 83.51 it is duty of landlord to maintain premises. If landlord does not perform its duties then under Section 83.54 you can enforce your rights through civil action.

        Your posting is a bit confusing. You indicate "we get a (sic) exteriminator here every two weeks"...do you mean YOU get this or your landlord does?

          Treating just "your" apartment will not resolve issue. The problem with living in an apartment is if you treat or even rid your unit of the insects they just go to next apartment. Once its safe to return to yours they will. The entire buuilding needs to be treated.

            Sunlover is correct about having to treat the entire building. Cockroaches live in walls, lay their eggs there and can run through attics, come up around water pipes, any crack in the walls. And then they retreat to whatever warm, dark place they are hiding. Just fogging usually does not do the job, either, but neccessitates laying traps with bait they will take back to their nest and poison the nest as well.

            Florida is a haven for every insect in Creation, it seems. Recently, our landlord had to do the same (I am in FLorida). After treating an apartment where young kids were less than clean and harbored these creatures, fogging their apartment did not do the job for they began to show up in other apartments after the fogging of the one. So an exterminator came out and did the attics as well.

            Since these insects can live in the backs of microwaves, walls, even computers -- anyplace that is dark and warm, whatever fogging methods are used must also be supplemented with bait traps so that the nests are killed off as well.

            It is the landlord's duty to take care of pest infestations, so notify in writing and only if he does not cure the problem do you need to take further steps.

                It's a pain to pick up the phone and give them a call and they seem more worried about the dangers around your dogs than you are?

                    Learning to punctuate sentences would go far in providing clear information on a forum.
