HIXSON, TN - Roaches are invading the homes of some residents in a Hixson trailer park. Neighbors are complaining - saying the roaches keep multiplying, but not enough is being done to fix the problem.

The Riverglen Community property manager has been made aware of the issue. But according to attorneys specializing in landlord and tenant laws, legally, the company is doing everything they're required to do by spraying the trailers once a month.

"The roaches in the evenings will come out at night, and they're all over the trailer," said resident Deborah Barnette. "They're coming across my grass and my sidewalk, all up on my trailer. You can't walk on my deck. You can't sit on my deck."
