“She’s basically moved out, but the bugs/rats have moved in”

“Dear PoPville,

We’re having a pretty gross problem and we’re wondering if your community has any advice. We’re in a row home and a neighbor to one side has practically abandoned the house, coming once every few months to pick up mail, but leaves the house in complete disrepair (one of the back windows has been broken over a year and a tree is growing through the roof). She’s basically moved out, but the bugs have moved in.

We’ve had a surge in bug and rat activity, and the neighbor on the other side of the neighbor is experiencing the same thing. Multiple exterminators tell us it isn’t going to be any better until the problem next door is fixed. It’s a constant battle. Our pleas with the neighbor to do something have gone unanswered. Is there anything else we can do?
