We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:
- Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
- When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
- Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
- Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
- Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
- Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house
Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.
Gainesville Dead Animal Tip: Does Using Poison Cause Dead Rats in the House?
Most people detest rats - and it’s as though that hatred is embedded in our DNA. Our hatred for these vermin can be traced back thousands of years. Since the earliest human civilizations, rats have learned to depend on humans for shelter and food. However, these rodents not only contaminate food sources but also spread diseases. Rats were the primary vectors of the Bubonic Plague, which killed about 25 million people. But that’s not all. Rats also cause structural damages as they chew on wood, insulation, wires, and other items, just to keep the length of their incisors in check.
With all these negative superpowers, it’s understandable why sighting a rat in your house is enough to make you cringe. There’s only one thing in your mind: How on earth can I get rid of this nasty pest? Unsurprisingly, many people turn to rat poison (or rodenticide).
The use of rodenticide is not new. Since the 19th century, people used strychnine, a deadly poison gathered from the strychnine tree, to kill rats. After the Second World War, anticoagulants became the preferred rat poison. Today, there are several types of rat poisons on the market - all of which claim to effectively kill nuisance rats. Some even make the bold promise of killing rats only when they’re outside your house. How? The poison causes the rat to become severely dehydrated, and this forces it outside in search of water, where it meets its demise. But are any of these claims true? Are rat poisons the best way to deal with a rat infestation problem?
How Rat Poison Worksstrong>
There are many types of rat poisons and they have a slightly different killing mechanism. But in general, when a rat consumes a poison, the poison gradually damages the internal organs of the rodent. This results in internal bleeding, and this means that blood won’t be completing its circuit around the body. With time, there won’t be enough blood to carry oxygen to the brain. This eventually results in death.
So, to answer the question: Yes, using rat poison can cause dead rats in the house! However, the issue is not as straightforward as several other things may go wrong.
Risks Associated with Rat Poison
Harming Unintended Wildlife
When you place rat poison in your house, there’s nothing to ensure that only rats consume it. Consequently, this exposes other wildlife to it. If your pets eat the poison, then you’d have to cough up several hundreds of dollars for treatment. If a large animal like a raccoon eats it, the poison will cause great suffering for it, but it may not be strong enough to kill it. When you use rat poison, you have no control over which animal’s stomach it’ll end up in.
Risks to Children
Most rat poisons are used with bait. Baits are designed to contain ingredients that will attract the rat. That’s why peanut butter, grains, fish, and other attractive foods are used as bait. Unfortunately, these food items also attract children. Thanks to their curiosity, children may want to touch, smell, or even eat the bait. Doing so can result in a serious problem.
Even if you kill those nuisance rats with poison, there’s still the issue of secondary poisoning you might not have taken into account. Although rats are disgusting to you, they play an essential role in feeding other animals. Birds of prey like hawks and owls, snakes, wolves, foxes, and wild cats are examples of some animals that feed on rats. Birds of prey even regurgitate their meal to feed their young ones. Imagine what could happen if a predator eats a poisoned rat. Well, you guessed right: it would, in effect, be ingesting the same poison, and that has grave health impacts.
When a rat is about to die from poison, it retreats to a secluded and hidden spot. This is in direct contrast to the commonly pronounced marketing message that the poison sends the rat outside in search of water. Once decomposition starts, you then have to deal with the putrid emanating smell. In many cases, locating the carcass is usually difficult. Aside from the terrible odor, a dead rat is also a breeding ground for many other diseases.
