That should get things under control when you’re dealing with ceiling snakes, right? In this case, no; Animal Control said they needed the landlord’s permission to take the roof down and get the snakes out, and Pugliese says Stafford “didn’t want to do nothing about it.” He had told Stafford earlier that he was going to take his rent money and use it to fix the roof instead and wouldn’t pay any rent until the pest situation was taken care of.
How would you respond to that? Stafford’s response was to serve them with eviction papers yesterday; when asked about the problem with bees in the walls of the rental home, Stafford told a reporter “I would hate to disturb the bees.” With barely a pause for the reporter to process that, he added “Bees are becoming extinct and that’s a strong hive.” Stafford then hung up on the reporter when she asked when the home had last been inspected. Pugliese and his family are now staying with his brother-in-law.
