My mother has had several anaphalxis reactions/hospital stays to what has been determined as the result of her landlord's side business of pest control. My mom's apartment was built from a converted barn. Her back door opens into the now 'garage' space where the dry chemicals are stored. Right outside her apartment is where the dry component is mixed with water in a large wheeled tank. She has asked him to move his base of operations and even provided a doctor's note stating the chemicals are life threatening to her and still no change. He's now just a little more covert about it but the practice is the same. It should also be noted that my mother also has MS and this situation has made her very ill. All of her medical issues were communicated to the landlord before she moved in. What can I do? Thanks! Ms. Dragon
