Dead Animal Smell Dilemma!
The awful stench created by a dead animal in your home is a household hazard no one wants to face – or smell! Getting rid of that terrible odor can quickly become all you can think about — as you stand in the front yard, wondering when the neighbors will notice, and calculating how many members of your family can fit into one motel room.
To compound the green fog that’s circling your house, you can’t get to the dead animal, so you’re stuck in that fog until the carcass fully decomposes…
Take Action to Kill that Dead Animal Smell!
The dead animal smell is caused by a decomposing animal carcass. Somewhere, somehow, an animal has crawled into your house − and died. It may be under your flooring where warm water pipes run or under your refrigerator, or it may have gnawed through wiring, been electrocuted, and is now turning to dead animal mush − inside the wall.
Point is: you can’t take the obvious action of removing the dead animal to help with removing the stink.
You need a stink destroyer that can eradicate a potentially long-term dead animal smell problem − and do it from the other side of a wall.
Smelleze® to the Rescue!
The answer to your nose-numbing dead animal smell is to take action with Smelleze® Reusable Dead Animal Smell Eliminator Pouches, which are easy to use, long acting, and reusable.
Each pouch is a proven and extremely effective de-stink weapon, especially when battling the horrible stench of a decomposing animal − even one that is out of reach! The all natural granules in each pouch capture odors by trapping and bonding to odor molecules in the air, eradicating the dead animal smell at the source without needing to come into contact with it.
Eliminating odor at the molecular level means that you’ve counter-acted the stink that results from decomposition, before those odor molecules can escape and travel along the airflow pathways within your home.
Long-Term Dead Animal Smell Elimination!
Depending on the sizes or numbers of dead animals that are stinking up your home, the stench from the decomposition can last for days, weeks, or even longer! To take care of this long-term dead animal odor, you need long-term smell elimination − and one that works even when you can’t remove the dead animal causing that smell.
Fortunately, Smelleze® Reusable Dead Animal Smell Eliminator Pouches are reusable, allowing you to combat that terrible dead animal stench continuously until the carcass has finally decomposed to dry remains − and no stink.
The 100% all natural granules in each pouch can be quickly re-activated and its odor-eliminating power completely refreshed by popping it into a microwave or placing it in direct sunlight. Discreet, but undeniably effective, Smelleze® pouches will stand between your nose and your dead animal smell until your home is completely odor-free.
How Did This 3-Alarm Smell Happen?
The common House Mouse is most often the culprit when a dead animal smell takes over your home. These opportunistic little rodents will sneak inside your house anywhere they can and need only a ¼-inch opening to do so!
Other critters who crawl, creep, or fly into your home then die and decompose, resulting in a dead animal stench that makes your life miserable are rats, bats, opossums, squirrels, chipmunks, snakes (yes, snakes), and lizards. Your house is vulnerable from rooftop to basement. All these animals need is a way inside.
Tactical Advantages to Avoid Dead Animal Smells
The best way to avoid having your home engulfed by the stench of a dead animal is to keep them out of your home. This isn’t as hard as it sounds.
Checking your home for access points is pretty straightforward. The following locations are a good place to start checking, but you may discover others as you look through and around your house.
- Foundation underpinnings
- Basement doors
- TV or Internet cable entry points
- Water pipe entry points (from basement into home or through foundation)
- Dryer duct opening
- Heating/Cooling ductwork (damage, rusting, holes)
- Attic vents
- Basement windows
- Crawlspace vents
- Outdoor electrical outlets (where wires enter the house)
Besides securing access points, it is also important to secure food sources, such as dry dog or cat foods, as well as put all foodstuffs in containers and regularly take out the trash.
Once you’ve found any critter entry points, you can take steps to keep them out and protect yourself from the nose-hazard of dead animal smells. Arm yourself with wire mesh or metal tape and simply close off any gaps, even those that seem too small. Remember, an adult mouse only needs a ¼-inch sliver of space to squeeze into your home!
Know Your Enemy
When it comes to dead animals and their nose-hair-curling smell, the common House Mouse is the primary suspect. Let’s look at this little critter and see what makes it tick and why it wants to live in our homes.
The common House Mouse:
- Requires an environmental temperature of 65º – 80ºF
- Gestation period of 20 days average
- Litters are 5-9 “pups”
- Pups reach viable adulthood in 6-10 weeks
- Can produce 5-10 litters per year
- Can live over 2 years in a protected environment (like your house)
- Born with 1 set of teeth, which never stop growing
- Must gnaw continually to keep teeth at a useful length
- Plays host to various insect parasites
- Has no bladder function, so urinates continually
House mice are usually the first to breach your home’s perimeter; this is important because their access and habitation can lead other animals to view your house as safe haven.
All About that Dead Animal Smell
Odors are transmitted at a molecular level. This means that they can permeate surfaces, especially through fluids and condensation, or in damp/humid areas. Airflow snatches up odor molecules and can spread the dead animal smell throughout your house.
Several things can affect the intensity of dead animal smells:
- The type of animal – for example, dead rats produce a particularly putrid smell
- The size of the animal – a larger body mass = stronger smell/longer to decompose
- The number of animals – again, a larger combined body mass
- The stage of decomposition – cellular breakdown produces the strongest odors
- Temperature – high temperatures accelerate decomposition & intensify odors
- Humidity – compounds & intensifies odors
- Airflow – odors will sink with cool air & rise with warm, seeming weaker/stronger at times
- Porous surfaces – decomposing fluids are absorbed & can intensify odors
All of the above are neutralized with Smelleze® Reusable Dead Animal Smell Eliminator Pouches and the power of their 100% all natural granules. Even when you haven’t been able to remove the dead animal, the most intense dead animal smell can be eradicated at a molecular level by a Smelleze® Pouch placed nearby.
Warning Signs & Critter Alerts
Before the eye-watering dead animal smell took over your house, you may have noticed some warning signs. These might have included:
- Mouse droppings – Mice are thigmotatic, meaning they prefer to travel along a vertical surface. This is why droppings are often found along a wall.
- Gnawing sounds – Mice must continually gnaw their teeth down to a useable length, whether they are widening a way into your home or chewing through electrical wiring.
- Squeaking – Mice communicate with squeaks. If you hear squeaking, it means there are multiple mice or a nest full of baby mice in your home.
- Pet interest – Mice produce sounds and smells that may have your dog or cat twisting their heads at things you don’t hear, see, or smell. Trust your pet’s senses and check for other warning signs.
Take steps to block entry to your home by closing any access points you can find then eliminate any mice that have found a way inside by putting out traps or glue boards.
Poisons & Dead Animal Hazards
Professional pest exterminators regularly recommend that homeowners use traps or glue boards when dealing with residential rodent infestations instead of poisons. The most commonly cited reasons are:
- Poisons do not exist that can “dry out” a dead animal so it doesn’t smell
- Poisons can allow an animal to reach their nest or other inaccessible spot before dying
- Poisoned animals may also die in the open, risking pets or children to exposure
- Poison may unintentionally be ingested by pets or non-invasive animals
- Unused poison demands highly secure storage
Using poison to eliminate or control house mice can increase the potential for the truly horrible problem of having a dead animal smell take over your home.
Beyond the nose-numbing smell a dead animal creates, there are some attendant hazards that should also be taken into account. Mice and rats, as well as any wild critter that takes up residence in your house, are hosts to various parasites, such as fleas, ticks, lice, and mites. These parasites leave their animal host once it dies in search of another host. That might be the nearest mouse or rat, but it can also be your pet or anyone who gets near the dead animal.
Dead animals also attract blowflies and other invasive insects, which can create another pest removal and control issue.
And finally, the continual mouse gnawing creates more and more access into your house for other wildlife, plus destruction of insulation and wiring. The gnawing of electric wires is a common fire hazard, as the mouse may nip the wire, be electrocuted, and leave the shorted wire exposed to combustible materials.
