Rodent control is very important, particularly if you have been battling an infestation. Once the treatment is applied, you are probably looking forward to taking your space back and living in it peacefully. Before long though, you start to notice a terrible smell. Unpleasant odors after rodent control are not due to the baits used, but rather the chemicals decaying animals release after they die, usually within the walls of a home. These chemicals include methane, sulfur dioxide, benzene derivatives, and hydrocarbons.
Simply ventilating your home by opening windows can help get rid of the smell, as can disinfectants and air fresheners. When an awful smell will not go away, speak to the pest control professionals that got rid of the problem and ask about other solutions.
