Does anyone have a great exterminator for a rat problem?
We've had rats in the ceiling of our basement rec room.
Our exterminator seems good but we still have rats after 6 weeks.
The issue is complicated by a difficult neighbour preventing access to a garage which seems to be the source of the rats. So it's possible our guy is doing all the right things but that dead rats (of which we've seen none) are being replaced by new rats from next door. We've even blown ZP into joist spaces where we know they hang out. (Ceiling wallboard is screwed directly to joists.) A day or two later we hear them again. Maybe a new approach or a new pair of eyes is required. A new neighbor would help too as finding exact access point from our side involves moving major plumbing/HVAC stuff
I've used metropest out of queens to deal with rats in the front yard ivy. They were able to get rid of them. Hard to completely eliminate them without cooperation from neighbors though.

I'd say call 311 on your neighbor who's being difficult, and mention you have seen active rat activity there. The Dept of Health will get involved and they can be fined quite a bit for not dealing with the problem, as it affects public health. We had a brief battle with about 9 rats in our basement around the time of Sandy. I found the source of their entrance to our basement (a rusty old plumbing vent pipe), sealed it off, then used tthe simple old Victor rat traps with peanut butter, and we got them all. Once their exit was sealed, they got more desperate, and eaiser to catch in the traps. I'd also call in an exterminator. We use http://www.altpest.com/ so much more than just setting traps...You want regular treatment to keep them away for good.
