Welcome and thank you for your question. As a general rule no one can enter your home without your permission or a court order. Condominiums/HOA's are a little different because they have governing documents that set out their powers. We would need to look through your governing documents to see if there is any language that gives the board the ability to enter your condo without your permission. Do you have a copy of your governing documents? If so can you attach them? Which State does your question pertain to?
Perfect. If we can look at the governing we can determine if there are any circumstances when they can enter. If there are no issues with your condo you may have a harassment action against the person causing trouble for you.
Seamus while you are locating your governing documents, let me start by providing you with some information.
There is probably some language that allows the board entry into your condo but it would be under very specific circumstances and would require notice unless it was an emergency such as you left your water on and other units are getting water from your unit.
The law that governs common interest developments in California is called the Davis Stirling Act https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=california+davis+stirling+act
Your board would need to have a policy on pest control.
