Omaha Rat Removal Tip: Finding and Removing a Dead Rat is No Picnic
Very often people are faced with the task of finding and removing a dead rat. This often happens as a result of poisoning. However, sometimes they just find their way in and live out their lives unbeknownst to the other inhabitants of the home or office.
The easiest thing to do is open a window and call an expert. The smell can be overwhelming, so you'll probably want to let some fresh air in. However, it is also necessary in the process.
Finding a Dead Rat
Typically, people start noticing an unpleasant stench that gets stronger and stronger as it permeates the air. It will not go away but it will turn your stomach. This is going to help you locate the carcass.
The smell of rotting animal carcass is undeniable. You will have to follow your nose to find it. Yep, turn on your Labrador instincts and start sniffing. There is really no other way unless you already know where it is.
Follow the smell as it gets stronger. When you get close to the carcass, the smell will change undeniably and not for the better. However, this will help you pinpoint the exact area where the little rodent likely died. It is probably within arms-length of his nest.
Removing the Carcass
Once you have pinpointed the exact area of the smell, you'll have a better idea of what you need to do. If it is in a wall, you will likely need a drill or drywall tool to cut a small hole. You may also need to handle it the same way if the smell is coming from the ceiling and you can't access the area through the attic. Either way, it must be removed. At least its not paneling. Drywall is easier to repair.
You will need heavy duty gloves and a respirator to actually remove the carcass. Rats carry all types of transmittable diseases and a dead animal carcass is very dangerous. The respirator is to protect you from any dust you may kick up from their surrounding feces. Put the carcass in a plastic bag, tie it tight and dispose of it outside.
It is also important to go back and clean the area thoroughly before repairing the area. All the feces and fecal matter must be completely cleaned. Besides the awful stench, it also contains pheromones that call out to its little rat friends. If you don't thoroughly clean and disinfect the area, then you'll probably get more visitors taking up residence and you'll have to do this all over again.
You also need to find all the little rat entry ways and seal them up with metal or steel mesh.
