Fort Myers Rodent Removal Tip:
Reasons why rats die inside attics and houses
A big concern for most homeowners in the United States is finding a dead rat inside their home or up in their attic, which is what we'll be talking about in this article. Not only will we look at the reasons why rats tend to die inside your house, but also what you can do if you suspect there is a dead rat nearby.
First of all, why you don't want a rat to die inside your home…
One huge and obvious reason why you don't want a rat to die inside your house is the awful smell that the body will give off as it begins to decompose. The smell is highly pungent and disturbing to you and yours, not to mention it can attract other predators, looking to feed off the dead rat. Yet another reason why you don't want dead rats inside the home is the same reason you wouldn't want any live ones - because these rodents tend to be notorious carriers of disease.
So what are some of the main reasons rats tend to die inside the home?
One of the biggest causes of death for rats is the use of rat poison. Most rat poisons out there act as an anti-coagulant, which leads to internal hemorrhage and a rather slow and painful death for the rat. Now, it doesn't really matter if it was you who used the poison. It may well have been one of your neighbors, and the reason the rat has snuck into your home is so as to protect itself as it's dying. Since the rat, in this weakened state, would not be able to fend off predators, it has sought shelter inside your house.
Other than the obvious disadvantages of having a dead, poisoned rat in your home is the danger to your own pets, particularly to cats, which may try to feed off the dead rat, and thus ingest the poison themselves.
Tip: This is a good reason not to use rat poison if you suspect you have a rat problem since they're quite likely to die inside your home and cause you a lot of other problems. Not to mention it's a horribly inhumane manner of disposal.
A similar cause of dead rats in the home is that the rat was attacked by another wild predator. It could be a bigger rat or some other type of animal that has injured them, such as a snake bite. Similar to the poison, the rat has come inside to seek shelter and protection as it dies.
Lastly, of course, a rat may die of natural causes inside the home. The reason it dies inside your house is that it had previously sought shelter there, and may have been living there for some time before its death.
What do you do if a rat has died inside your home?
The first sign that there is a dead rodent on your property is bound to be the smell. Once you pick up the smell, we suggest keeping any pets safely contained until you've identified the source of the smell, on the off chance that the dead animal was poisoned and may go on to poison your pet.
Begin to inspect your house, looking for the dead rat. Make sure to look in less visible places first. Attics and basements are particular favorites of rats since they offer more intimacy and fewer chances of being discovered.
If you can't seem to find the rat yourself, call in a professional removal expert. Once the dead rat has been removed, make sure to thoroughly clean your home.
