I smell a rotting carcass today at home. We smell it in

Customer Question

I smell a rotting carcass today at home. We smell it in every room and even when standing on the deck when the wind blows. We've looked around for a dead animal but haven't found one.We had bees in our attic several months ago and they were treated with spray but the hives weren't removed.Over the past two winters, I've heard scurrying in the ceiling.We'd like to get rid of this smell. What should we do?

Oooh geez! Sorry! Disposal on that won't be easy.....

I was going to say too that you really don't want to hear scurrying feet in your attic either, and that holes need to be filled up to keep the critters out, but also to keep the cold air out.
