Dead Rat In Your Home In West Memphis AR

Rat Exterminator In West Memphis AR - That TERRIBLE Smell!

When rats die, their bodies begin to decompose, releasing a strong foul smell. The breakdown of tissues and the activities of bacteria that aid in the process of decomposition result in the release of obnoxious gases.

This smell is not only disgusting, but is also a potential health concern. The decomposition process can attract other pests and insects, increasing the risk of further infestations. The smell itself can cause discomfort and even nausea in some humans.

So if you smell something nasty in your home, call Apex Wildlife Control today. Our technicians will remove the dead rat and deodorize the area for you.  We are here to help!

Professional Rat Removal In West Memphis AR - Trapping VS Poison?

Some pest control companies prefer poison to trapping when it comes to rat control. In severe rat infestation situations, poisoning the rats certainly offers a faster result than trapping them. Unfortunately, rats do not always die outside. The rats can die inside your home, often in inaccessible areas such as in a wall or behind large appliances or furnace. Also, keep in mind that domestic pets can accidentally ingest the poison or even eat a poisoned rodent.

Apex Wildlife Control used only lethal snap traps. The rats are killed instantly and are easy to locate snared in the trap. Our technicians remove and dispose of the dead rat and trap together. We never reuse these traps.

DIY Rat Removal In West Memphis AR - Our Secret Weapon

When trying to locate a dead rat in the wall, our technician’s preferred “secret weapon” is the Boroscope. With a flexible lens and LED light, this slender tool can peek into the darkest recesses to search for the deceased rodent. A Boroscope is basically a camera on a thin, flexible rod. The technician bores  a small hole at the base of your wall and threads the Boroscope through the opening to search for the rodent.

Once the dead rodent is located, the technician will cut a small hole in the wall near your baseboard adjacent to the rodent. He will remove the dead rat and deodorize the area with an industrial disinfectant. No more dead rat — no more obnoxious odor!

How To Get Rid Of Rats In West Memphis AR - Rat Disease And Bacteria

Once the dead rat is removed, the aftermath goes beyond the foul odor. It brings forth a silent danger – bacteria. As the rat decomposes, harmful bacteria multiply, contaminating the air and nearby surfaces. Breathing in these airborne particles can lead to dangerous respiratory issues.

Bacteria can spread through contact, posing health risks to both humans and pets. Proper handling and disposal of dead rats is crucial to prevent infection. Disinfection of the area and surrounding surfaces is essential to removing any lingering bacteria. At Apex Wildlife Control, our technicians are diligent in disinfecting and deodorizing the dead rat’s final resting place. If you have a dead rat somewhere in your home, give us a call today.
