How to find and remove a dead rodent

Rodents are pests that can cause serious damage to your property; they are health hazard due to all the bacteria and viruses they get in touch with, they can also be carriers of dangerous diseases-and in the end, they are complete nuisance. You can't leave anything in the open because they can get to it and chew on it, making it dangerous for you, your family and pets.



Rodents easily find entrance to your home as well as to business buildings because they can climb up the walls and enter interior through the tinniest possible hole. Once they are inside, they start reproducing in no time-and because reproductive cycle of rodents is very fast, you can have very large rodent family in no time. A terrible thought, right? It is even worse when it becomes a reality!

Finding a dead rodent in your home

Once you have rodents in your home, you will surely begin dealing with rodent infestation. There are number of different methods to deal with rodents occupying your home-humane and inhumane ones, but this is not the topic in this article. We are talking about what to do when you scent rotting rodent smell in your home. The stench of decaying body is unmistakable and it is only logical that you want to get rid of it as soon as possible.

In order to get rid of the scent of decomposing rodent body you first have to locate the dead rodent that is rotting and smelling so bad. The safest method to find a dead rodent is to use your nose-go around your home sniffing like a hound and you will eventually unmistakably locate dead rodent's final destination.

What to do once you have located the dead rodent in your home

Removal of dead rodent from your home will depend on where the body is located. If it is in the attic, it will be fairly easy to find the body and to remove it. Please use rubber gloves to pick the body and to place it in a bag. Clean the area to make unpleasant smell removal easier. If rodent is in walls you will first need to precisely locate it and then drill a hole in the wall to remove it's body from there. Again, please use gloves before picking the dead body to prevent any infection transfer. After this, re-plaster the wall to make everything look as it was.
