Washington's News4 I-Team reported that White House officials are communicating with GSA workers about efforts to combat rodents and mice from spreading inside the West Wing. The emails show work orders for roach removal in ground level room 74.
 
The News4 I-Team  obtained internal emails and logs of repair needs and maintenance orders at the White House, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs headquarters and Environmental Protection Agency headquarters.
 
According to the News4 I-Team article, "the logs received under the Freedom of Information Act show some of the problems and mishaps inside the aging federal buildings where tens of thousands of federal employees work. They also show the enormity of tasks assigned to federal work crews overseen by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), which manages federal buildings"
 
News 4 made a similar investigative report last year when the revealed that "Maintenance workers were asked over the past two years to respond to reports of mice infiltrating the White House Navy mess food service area and the White House Situation Room. There were also at least four reported cockroach infestations on the grounds and a complaint of ants in the White House chief of staff’s office."
