After several nights of hearing loud scratching noises in my mom's ceiling (I've been staying with her for a few weeks), I called a pest control company to have them investigate. They found copious rat droppings in the attics and, subsequently, a whole where the two sides of the roof adjoined, large enough for a raccoon to enter. The whole was sealed a couple of days later and almost immediately, we got a horrible smell in the house. Two days later, pest control man came to check and the rats were empty but he could also smell the horrid odor. Yesterday, I went back and identified the bathroom as the main source of the smell, beneath the shower drain, in fact. The drain doesn't fully lift out and I can only see about a half inch or so underneath. The smell is the most concentrated from just below the drain and when I shined a light in, it looks like there is some fuzz or furr. We had construction done on the other bathroom recently so I am wondering if there is a chance that a rat could have entered into the pipe? Please let me know as this is making me absolutely crazy and incredibly grossed out. Thank you very much,
