Health Hazard


I have notified my landlord, maintenance, attorney, and the housing authority regarding a fly infestation problem I am having in my apt.  I notified the landlord and maintenance on the 19th of August and maintenance did not come to look at the problem until the 31st of August.  Maintenance took pictures of all the dead flies on and below my window sills in my back bedroom.  He also sprayed around the windows outside that same day.  That seemed to help until I noticed on Saturday, September 5, 2009 that there were numerous dead flies on the window sills in my back bedroom and on the floor below.  I called and left a message for maintenance, but did not receive a call back that day.  In a few hours, the window sill in my bedroom and 2 window sills in my living room were covered with dead flies.  I called maintenance again on Sunday, September 6, 2009, but have still not heard anything and it is now 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8, 2009.  I wrote an email to the housing inspector at lancaster county housing authority yesterday and printed out a copy of the email and mailed it to my attorney.  I have not gotten any calls from maintenance or the housing authority as of yet.  Will it hurt my receiving section 8 rental assistance if I call the state health department?  Thank you.  I am a graduate student and receive disability.
