No one wants a customer to walk into your business and be welcomed by a terrible smell. When a rat dies, its body begins to decompose, releasing a foul odor. This odor is a result of gases produced by the breakdown of tissues and the activities of bacteria that aid in decomposition.
The smell is not only unpleasant, but also a potential health concern. The decomposition process can attract other pests and insects, increasing the risk of further infestations. The odor itself can cause discomfort and even nausea in humans.
Call today, and one of our technicians will remove the dead rat and deodorize the area. We are here to help!
The horrible odor of a dead rat in a restaurant can be a
nightmare for owners and patrons alike. The decomposing carcass emits a foul and persistent smell that permeates the air, potentially leading to customer complaints and tarnishing the establishment’s reputation. Not only does the stench repel diners, but it also poses health risks, as decaying rats can carry diseases. Identifying and removing the dead rodent promptly is crucial to restore a pleasant dining environment.
If you think you may have a dead rat somewhere in your restaurant, call Apex Wildlife Control today! Our technicians are trained to sniff out those dead rats and remove them from your establishment so you can get back to business fast!
The Boroscope is our technician’s preferred item of choice when we get a call to deal with a dead rat in the wall. Armed with a flexible lens and LED lights, this thin, slender tool can peek into the darkest recesses to look for the deceased rodent.
A Boroscope is basically a camera on a thin, flexible rod. The technician will bore a small hole at the base of your wall, and thread the Boroscope through the opening to look for the rodent. Once the dead rat is located, the technician will cut a small hole in the wall near your baseboard beside the rodent. He will remove the dead animal and deodorize the area with an industrial disinfectant. Dead rat and odor are gone and you’re back in business!
Poison and rat trapping are two common methods used to control rat populations, each with its pros and cons. Trapping involves using baited traps to instantly kill rats, allowing for safe disposal and avoiding secondary poisoning risks. It’s more targeted, but labor-intensive and requires ongoing monitoring.
On the other hand, poison baits offer convenience and reach, targeting multiple rats simultaneously. However, poisons pose risks to pets and other wildlife if ingested accidentally. Plus, rats don’t drop dead precisely where they ingest the poison. The rats will eventually die, but they can fall down into a wall void and create a horrific smell as the remains decompose. A dead rat in a trap is always easier to remove!
