“The overwhelming stench of at least two dozen dead rats hidden in the walls of Orlando International Airport caused a stink this week, forcing officials to close a customs checkpoint area until they were removed”
For any homeowner that has found themselves at the mercy of this foul odor when a rodent turns up dead in your house, you can sympathize with the travelers at Orlando who became ill after visiting Orlando International Airport.
“The airport is undergoing a $321 million renovation, which upset the rats and sent them crawling into the celing and walls of the building in early March, Carolyn Fennell, an airport spokeswoman, told the Orlando Sentinel”
“Exterminators poisoned the rats, killing the rodents inside the walls.”
This is a common result when construction takes place disturbing a rodent population, your home may have never had a problem before, and even a neighbors renovation can stir up activity.
“Crews scrubbed air ducts, tiles and carpets with a peroxide solution last weekend, Fennell said.”
I personally had a rodent die in the walls behind a kitchen cabinet. At first it started out where you’re the only one is house asking “do you smell that?” After a couple of days forget scrubbing the kitchen, I wanted to scrub myself the odor became so strong. Luckily all it took was one of our saavy pest control technicians to visit my home, and remove the rodent, that with a little deodorizer and I was back to waking up smelling the coffee instead!
