Hello everyone,

I’m not sure if I’m in the right place to make this post, but I don’t know who else to turn to, and my situation is rather urgent.

I had a rat problem at home, but unfortunately, I had some bad luck as I was advised to use poison baits instead of natural repellents or traps. Now, it has been five days since I’ve heard any strange noises in my attic. However, I have a dead rat somewhere in my house, and I’m afraid it will soon start to smell bad. I would like to know if anyone here could help me find a solution to this problem.
