BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — A Brooklyn mother of three, who lives at the Brevoort Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant, says rats have ruled her kitchen for years.
As an example, the mother, who did not want to be identified, said she was just about to heat her 7-month-old daughter’s bottle of milk when several rats ran across the stove.
She captured the frolicking rodents on cellphone video.
“I went into the kitchen to make her a bottle and I see the mice playing on the stove," the mother said. "I see them dancing and playing on the stove and chasing each other. I have clean pots — no, they are looking for food."
A NYCHA spokesperson says the resident previously declined a scheduled extermination treatment last Monday. Staff began making repairs in the kitchen Monday, including removing kitchen cabinets and repairing any holes in the walls, and a new extermination has been scheduled.
The mother countered that she never declined extermination or a previous transfer and has a meeting with management Wednesday to fill out transfer paperwork.
