A yr ago I was in a 2-family, top floor and had been hearing noises over my head and in the wall and woke at 4:30am to a flying squirrel on the floor near by bed. Left that place and moved to an apartment building. I'm on the 5th floor with one floor above me. It has a terrace that runs the length of the building. I have NOTHING on the terrace, no plants. No pets. No crumbs anywhere, I try to keep things in plastic containers; I'm fastidious about cleaning. The people I've talked to who have been here a long time say there's no problems with mice or anything. The HVAC unit is in a closet accessible outside from the terrace. There were some droppings out there this morning, I think they're from a squirrel. Anyway, since the flying squirrel I'm paranoid about creatures and my question is, is there a chance anything could get through the HVAC closet door (steel I think) and then somehow get in through the unit itself into the ducts, into my my apartment? Supposedly it's all fire-proof, the walls and stuff, not sure what that means, but does that also lessen the chance of anything getting through on the roof and then into my walls? I do hear things on occasion but it's only for a moment and then doesn't continue...
