    Default Help dead rat under floor boards!!!

    We found out a rat was living in our house and we proceded to get rid of it... well it was stealing my apples of my dining table and shitting all over the house so It was time to go. We knew it was a rat cause it would eat half an apple a night and leave big rat sized doppings.

    now we tried using rat traps but the sneaky rat kept taking the bait and not setting the trap off somehow. So after a few days we went with the poison option.

    It done the trick and we woke up to a smelly kitchen this morning. after ripping the whole kitchen apart not finding the smell we noticed there was a hole going under the floor boards right in a corner under the built ins. (bout the size of a 50 cent piece)

    now how can we stop this unbearable smell.. can we just block the hole with somthing or is there somthing that we can drop down there to stop the smell??
    im not admiring your car im looking in disgust

    itll only last a week or so. but could breed other nasties. spray a shitload of pineoclean or something down there to kill the crap. will help with the smell as well.

    Bastard rat got the last laugh hey.

    Glad you got the bugger, I,m in a rural area and during grain season, we can get overurn with mice and rats.
    When they're really bad we make up suicide buckets for the varmints where they try to get the bait over a bucket of water, a lot of times I,ve caught 20 or 30 in one bucket.

    But that stink is so bloody awful, ( I guess this post won't make it to British search engines, because the Poms don't like that word).

    I've made sure my house has no holes or gaps anywhere so they can't get inside, think I've got it beat this year.

    Even worse smell, my dogs caught a large goanna , and had taken it under the house , a couple of weeks later we wondered what the smell was, and I had to crawl under the house dragging this maggot infested dripping carcass out, maggots falling off , I can tell you I gagged a bit with that one .

    little tiny geckos can be pretty potent too. 10cm long but stink out half a house.
