IMPORTANT NOTICE

It is very important for us to control mice in the building. If it comes to one unit it multiplies and spread to all other units very quickly. Mice feces near food is unhygienic. They need very little food to multiply rapidly. It is crucial that any possible foods is kept away and make it as hostile as possible for them. So I am requesting every one to comply with the following:

1. Trash must be taken out when full. Overflowing trash can is unacceptable.
2. Kitchen sink must be clean of dishes and food.
3. Stove top/oven, counter top, kitchen floor has to be free of food crumbs.
4. No food items or snack should be left on the floor.

If you do not strictly adhere to all of the above requests then it will be an invitation for mice in the entire building. I can not allow that since it is unhygienic and would affect all tenants. And there is evidence of mice currently present in your unit as per the exterminator. So I urge everyone to help me keep the building free of rodents and other pests.
