THE BRONX - Tenants living in the Castle Hill Houses say their building is full of mosquitoes.

They say they say are constantly killing mosquitoes in their apartments and that it’s been a problem for years.

Gladys Rodriguez says she cleaned a batch of mosquitoes out of her Seward Avenue apartment on Monday. She has mosquito tape hanging in her apartment, and says that she uses a new strip almost daily.

News 12 reached out to NYCHA after hearing her story. NYCHA said a plumber and vendor would be sent to the building Wednesday to treat flooding and a leak in the basement.

Residents say NYCHA has sent crews to fix the mosquito problem in the past but that the bugs kept coming back.
