my landlord often enters my apartment with no notice

My landlord often enters my apartment with no notice when no one is present. How legal is this? And how do I get him to desist? I have requested in writing and in person. No response to writing. In person he refused to put anything in writing but let it be known that his "Word" should be enough. This is not the first time he gave us this assurance only to break his word. My wife is in a constant state of paranoia. <p>
I live in Pennsylvania.

Check PA state law first.....

Ck PA law on entry by landlord. Print and send to landlord and ask that you be advised - via voicemail, answering machine, e-mail whatever when he plans to enter. If he continues to enter, advise him in writing that you are setting up a hidden video camera in your apartment to monitor him when he is in the unit....you really don't have to, just the notification should make him realize he may be on 60 Minutes.
