What to do When Ants Take Over Your Apartment

Have you ever had to notify your landlord or maintenance crew about bugs in the house? It’s never fun. But when the exterminator still hasn’t come 2 weeks later? Very not fun.

As you can see, in an earlier email thread, my landlord reiterated the pets policy. No harm there. But to make things a little more fun, let’s use that to our advantage and tie it all back together!
