Awful Smell and other problems
Ok this is going to be a little nasty and a little embarrassing for me but oh well.
So I live out in the country and there is a 50+ acre field behind me along with 2 large ponds. This added up equals mice and rats. I have this HUGE phobia of wild rats. When my 2 year old brushes up against me I cant barely stand it. AHHHHHHHHH just the thought of it makes my spine twinge and my skin crawl. We have tried EVERYTHING to keep them out. I can not afford at pest man at $75/hr so its left up to us. We tried filling all the holes with that foam that hardens up, they ate threw it. Traps, bypassed them. (snap and glue) So we used poison. I know I know BIG mistake but that was the LAST straw believe me. NOW, uh its so awful to even think about, I think one has died up under my bathroom counter, like up under the wood. Whenever you open it the smell about knocks you on your feet. The sent is leaking out of the cabinet and is faint but you can deff smell its there. Trust me it is a dead animal smell (I collect skulls for art reasons). I was wondering if there is any quick fix for the smell till I can convince my boyfriend to go up under the crawl space, which freaks me out to no limit. I CAN NOT stand a rat. If one were to jump on me I might have a heart attack, I honestly dont know what would happen to me if I were stuck under the back corner of the house and one was on me AHHHHHHHHHH. So you can 86 the idea of me going under there. But anyways..What other cleaning do I need to do to make sure rat pee isnt lurking around my house. I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old and it is just not sanitary..
