Bland Houses host fighting vermin
Melba Nazario lives at the Bland Houses in Flushing says she saw rats fighting raccoons for trash.
Nazario said when she tries to complain to the management office, it’s always closed.
A spokesperson for NYCHA said exterminators are treating the area every two weeks for any rodent issues, with the last treatment on Oct. 29. They are scheduling to address any raccoons at the development. The animals will be safely relocated. Also, all the garbage and trash around Senior Center have already been removed by staff, a spokesperson promised.
The Bland Houses’ office has been closed briefly due to a staffing shortage, a spokespersons aid. It will be reopening Dec. 4.
