    Reopening ticket as I’m seeing numerous adjoining units report this. Our building is definitely prone to roof rats. Northwest came yesterday (fifth time since we first reported this issue).

    Second visit the guys sealed a hole under the eaves between our unit and the neighboring one. Third visit they came and pulled out 3-4 rats. We continued to hear at least one more. We could hear it in the ceiling and in the walls and had reason to believe it might have found a way to get under our dishwasher and to the dogs dish. The fourth visit they sealed a hole under the sink in the basement bathroom and set more traps. This was right before Christmas.

    We hadn’t heard much for the past week or so, but then heard them again a couple nights back. NW came today and found traps untouched and no new holes. The technician suggested perhaps it was coming through the attic fan, but that’s pretty tricky. I mentioned that neighbors had been reporting sounds as well, and he said it could be that they found a way to move between units despite firewalls. He said in ATL it’s more often than not going to be rats, and they do chew through drywall and whatever else is in their way. Might be helpful to have NW do a full building inspection for additional holes.

    Pest control came sometime back and said they placed traps in the attic and blocked the entrances, but they haven’t come back to check them. Additionally we’ve heard a lot of scurrying lately and one of the lights in the basement has been flickering (which we hope isn’t related).
