"Our Rat Bait Keeps Dead Rodents From Smelling Bad!"

How often have you heard that one?   Here are some more treasures often repeated by so-called "pest professionals":

  • This bait makes rats dry up into dust so they won't stink.

  • Our bait makes rats so thirsty, they run outside to drink water and die outside.

  • Rat bait "mummifies" rats so they don't stink.

The list goes on and on.  There are technicians out there who persist in telling their customers that the rodenticide being used is "secret stuff" that keeps rats from smelling in your home.   The truth?  There is no such rodenticide.  If you are baiting rodents, you can rest assured that they will die in areas where they normally frequent: their nesting site, their food source, or in between.

To lessen the chances (or amount) of odor, incorporate glue traps or snap traps into your baiting program.  You will then have dead rodents that can be removed before there is an odor.
