Step 1: Physical Removal of Waste
  • Your Wildlife Patrol technician has explored the attic during the trapping phase and knows where the bulk of the droppings are.

  • Rat and squirrel droppings are removed by power vacuum.

  • Raccoon and opossum droppings are removed by hand.

  • 70 - 100% of fecal matter is removed during this phase.
Step 2: Decontamination with BioShield®
  • Bio Shield is a stable liquid suspension of enzymes and cultured live microorganisms and malodor counteractants.

  • It is capable of breaking down and digesting complex proteins, oils, hairs, and other organic wastes.

  • Bio Shield is applied by a power atomizer to all areas where animals have resided.

  • The atomizer blasts Bio Shield up to 25 feet away. This allows treatment of difficult to reach surfaces within the attic, crawl space, or wall voids.

  • BioShield begins to neutralize the waste im mediately, and continues to work over time.

Dead animals will smell until they are completely decomposed or until they are dried out. The damper the site, the longer the odor will last. If a rat dies near a steam pipe, the smell can be horrible for weeks. The odor from a dead mouse may last only a day. In fact, there may be no noticeable odor from a single dead mouse, but several dead mice in the same area could be a problem. A dead rat may smell really bad for a week, but there can be some lingering odor for as long as a month.


There are several ways to get rid of odor problems in a building.

  • You can take the odor out of the air by using an air cleaner with an absorbent filter.
  • You can add something to the air that neutralizes the odor.
  • Or you can add a new, more desirable odor that temporarily masks or covers up the bad odor.

        Remove Animal Waste from the Attic

It is important to Orlando pest control remember that you must eliminate all odor. Even if you cannot smell it, companion animals can, and they will likely try to pee on or mark over the same attic area. They do that out of instinct, not spite. Follow these clean-up steps for wet or dried urine spots.  Soak up urine with a white towel or paper towels. Blot, don�t rub. Rubbing can damage carpet fibers. Clean starting with an area sufficiently outside of the stain ring, moving inward.  Rinse the area with water to dilute the urine. Blot again using clean towels.

* Optional but reportedly very effective: rinse the area with club soda, then blot up.

* Absorb the remaining liquid with towels � stand on the towels or place heavy books over them. Be patient; it may take 6 hours to dry. To hasten the process, extract moisture using a wet/dry vacuum. If you let the carpet or upholstery stay damp, trapped moisture can lead to mildew and eventual crumbling.

  • See if you can find the cause/source. Use caution when looking. Other living animals may be around. Also you should wear appropriate protective equipment in case you accidentally find the carcass. Protective clothing should include but not be limited to 1. rubber gloves inside leather gloves. 2. old clothes, 3. Properly fitted HEPA filter face mask.
  • Increase air flow. Air flow dissipates the smell.
  • Spray deodorant. It doesn't have to be anything special. What you like to smell is the most important aspect. Be careful what surfaces you spray the deodorant on as it may discolor the surface. We have heard good reports with the Citrus Neutrox Odor Counteractant Concentrate. You can learn more about this product at Deodorant If you plan on purchasing it insert WDC001 in the comments section for a discount. WDC doesn't sell this product. But a distributor will give a discount to those who buy from us.
  • Epoleon Corporation makes a number of deodorizing products that have a following in the Wildlife Control Community. I have never used their product. But I have heard good reports on them. You can learn more about their products by visiting their web site at
  • I don't recommend tearing out the walls, because it is easy to be fooled and be one stud away. Thus requiring you to make two holes instead of one. I would suggest not using poisons to control mice as this problem can happen again although it is rare.
  • Remember that the odor will go away eventually. As soon as the carcass dries out the odor will cease. Of course the larger the animal the longer it takes. This need to dry out the carcass is critical. The sooner you can dry it out the sooner the odor will leave. Of course, if you can remove the carcass (using proper protective equipment and recognizing that there may be infectious agents in the carcass) then the odor will go away even faster.
  • We have heard of ozone type deodorizing and/or ionizing devices to dissipate odors. We have not been able to fully get a firm scientific handle on the validity of their claims. Be cautious about such claims from the salesmen of these machines.


* Do not use ammonia, since ammonia smells somewhat like urine to animals. Alternate cleaning/deodorizing method: cover pet accidents with baking soda, let it stand for at least two hours, then vacuum. Proceed with other steps above as needed.

* If a stain reappears on the surface of the carpet a few days later, dilute the stain with water and clean again. Steam-cleaning can be a last resort.

* Commercial cleaners usually advise that you test a carpet�s color fastness before applying a product to clean a spot. Do this by applying a small amount on a hidden part of the carpet, then wait 24 hours to see if the carpet has changed color. Of course, you don�t want to delay cleaning up urine, feces, vomit or other organic stain � so test products right after you buy them, instead of waiting until you actually need to use them.



Signs that the smell is coming from a dead animal

  • flies
  • smell starts small and gets progressively stronger and lingers for days to weeks. This is especially true of skunks which die under decks and sheds.
  • putrid odor

Don't be surprised at the amount of odor caused by something as small as a mouse.

* Use nontoxic products that are specifically made for pet messes and pet odors. They are typically more effective, since they organically break down waste while neutralizing odors, and they are safer for homes with animals. But always check the label to be sure.

* There are nontoxic, inexpensive cleaning solutions you can make at home using standard ingredients such as baking soda, white vinegar and club soda.

* Treat stains properly to avoid permanent damage to carpets and upholstery.
