Do you have a dead rat in your home in Eads TN? Have you been smelling foul odors in your home even after you have cleaned and taken out the trash? If you have heard scratching noises, there is a very good chance animals are in your walls or attic. When you hear these noises, it is always best to get a professional to inspect your property. Keep a detailed log of when and where you hear the noises. If the noises you hear seem to stay in one place, then the rat may be stuck. If a rat does get stuck in a wall, it can die quickly from exhaustion and dehydration.
Don’t Mask The Smell Of A Dead Rat In Your Home In Eads TN
If you have dead rats in your home, they are much harder to find than a live one. Living animals make noises that allow us to track them. It is much easier to locate a living rat than a dead one. For more information about rats in your walls, click here.
Dead rats can only provide an odor for us to follow. Make sure that you do not burn candles prior to our arrival. This will mask the decaying scent and prevent us from locating the rat. We understand you do not want to smell a dead rat! However, it is much easier to locate when we don’t have to compete with other strong scents.
Dead Rats In The Home Are More Common Than You Think
A rat entering your home is more common that you may think. Rats typically gain access to seek shelter, to mate or nest. They also can seek shelter from other predators. This usually happens if there is an overabundance of wildlife in your area.
Rat Reproduction Rates Are Incredible!
Either way, this is bad news. Rats in particular mate at an alarming rate because they can have litters throughout the year. A successful rat pair can birth to up to 1500 baby rats. Small rats can easily fall into crevices and get stuck. Once this happens, it is easy for them to die inside a wall.
Dead Animal Deodorization And Emergency Service
Apex Wildlife Control offers dead animal removal and deodorization services for commercial buildings and residential homes. In most cases we are able to schedule clients within one to two business days. However, this can take longer during our busy season.
At Apex we also offer after-hours and emergency services for additional fees. Once our technician arrives, he will inspect and locate the area that the smell is the strongest. He will inspect your attic and wall cavities as well.
Locating The Dead Rat In Your Home In Eads TN
If the technician is able to narrow down the rat’s location, he will drill small holes at the bottom of the wall. He then inserts a Boroscope camera to look and see if he can get a visual of the dead rat. The technician will spend up to 45 minutes searching for the deceased animal. (Clients may request additional searching time for an additional fee.)
Locating the animal is the tricky part, but once we find it everything is pretty easy and quick. We retrieve the dead rat from the wall by making the hole a little bigger. We clean up any remaining parts and put it in a bag to take with us. Finally, after all the clean-up is complete, we set up a deodorizing machine to emit an odor-neutralizing particle mist. Instead of smelling a dead rat odor for weeks, we will have it neutralized typically within 24 to 48 hours.
As wonderful as this service is, there is no guarantee with it. The rat may get stuck and die in an area that is inaccessible. We try to do as little damage as possible when it comes to extracting dead rats from homes and businesses.
Be Sure To Get A Full Inspection Following The Animal Removal
Apex Wildlife Control strongly suggests that if you have a dead rat issue in your home that you have a full inspection done on your property. Where there is one rat, there will be more. We can do this inspection service the same day as the removal of the dead rat or make an appointment another day. This is completely up to you so you don’t feel bombarded all in one appointment.
Our technician will go into your attic and check for fecal droppings to determine and verify the species. He will check for chewed wiring, damage to your HVAC or duct work, and urine damage to your insulation. You will receive pictures with all of the findings to show the damage the rodents have done so far.
Afterward, the technician will look from the bottom of your foundation to the top of your roof for all possible and actual entry points. He will take pictures and show you how the rats are getting in and out of your home. That same day, he will provide a detailed quote showing the work needed to seal your home and costs for each area. This quote will include the cost of trapping and exclusion. A full inspection of your home takes about 45 minutes. We will explain what needs to be done to solve your rodent problem.
