A firm hired to assess the presence of fleas at Los Angeles City Hall said it found no evidence of the disease-carrying pests inside the building or in other government structures nearby, according to a report issued to the City Council. …

Although the company identified fungus gnats, ants, flies, centipedes and other insects, “no fleas were found during our inspections or noted on any of our monitoring stations,” the report said. Around 1,800 monitoring stations were installed. …

City employees have complained about the rat situation inside City Hall for several months, saying they have encountered rodent droppings, partially eaten houseplants and tiny paw prints on their paperwork. Three rats were caught in the office of Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez.
