A Las Vegas man says he has been battling mice crawling all over his apartment for the last three months.
Aaron Gray said the management at Hidden Village near Charleston Boulevard and Bruce Street has been trying to get rid of the mice for the last three months since they started showing up, but the mice don't seem to be leaving. Now he does not know what to do.
"We're putting the mice traps out, we're bleaching everything trying to get the mice to go, but they're not going," said Gray.
To make matters worse, he said the state is telling him he has 14 days to get rid of the mice. This is because his family gets assistance from the state and a caseworker alerted Child Protective Services about the mice.
"They explained to me at this point, if they cannot fix it within the next 14 days, my only choice is to get up and leave and move," Gray said, who explained he does not have enough money right now to get a new apartment.
Gray said nothing to get rid of the mice has worked.
"I think that even if we kill one, there's still going to be two more that make 10 and we just can't do nothing about it, it's out of our hands, and now it's threatening the life of my daughter," Gray said.
Management at Hidden Village refused to talk with 13 Action News on camera when we went to the office. 
But when we called later, they told us they are evicting Gray because his neighbors have problems with him. But it's worth noting -- he works security at the complex. 
Now, Gray is trying to see if he can get out of there without paying November rent so he can get a new place.
