Hearing some extra squeaks in your apartment?

Those might be rats that fled Hurricane Sandy, months after the storm.

Exterminators say the flood waters drove rats further inland than they had been before, according to The New York Times.

The newspaper reported that neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights and Lower Manhattan have been the source of many calls to exterminators.

Staten Island exterminators also reported problems in that borough, where a lot of homes remain empty.
