    Default Help .Dead rat smell.

    i have a hair salon as a client in a shopping mall. A rat has died in a cavity wall. The owner says just find it. Thats impossible. What can hide the smell of decaying flesh. This is in the toilet that has no ventilation and is 1,8x 0.9m in size.

    Depends on how much they are willing to spend vs living with the odor for a while.

    Maggots will help with the decaying flesh but will cause the annoying flies

    Lime.

    Pour a few kgs down each of the cavity walls.

    Gooi a dead fish down the cavity wall, the 2 will cancel each other out.
    Can only imagine how horrible that must be in a small space.

    Drill a hole at the bottom if the cavity wall. Use a drain inspection tool/borescope to locate the rat. Once you have found the rat, enlarge the hole to allow you to a hand or grabbing tool into the hole, or treat it in situ with lime or other solution. I assume that there is only on cavity wall.

    Chillies, eat lots of chillies and down a couple of red heart rums, wait a few hours then go take a dump. The dead rat will get up and go stink somewhere else.
