What will happen to the body of the rat that died from the First Strike Soft Bait and is stock in the wall

Will it smell? Will it release Gaz or anything else that can be dangerous to human or pets? I have at list 2 deded rats stock in my walls! Do I absolutely need to open my wall to reach the body of the dead rat or I have the option to securely leave them in the wall? Thank you very much for your quick response. I am very nervous about this situation.


We do not recommend using rodents poison inside of buildings because of the risk of the rodents dying inside of a wall void or other inaccessibkle areas. The carcass of a dead rodent will be very odorous and should be removed because of the bacteria, virus, or parasites that may be left behind which is not healthy.
