One of the obvious things that we all know about is the fact that when an animal dies, it starts
decomposing and a strong odor is releases. With Miami opossums, it is not so easy to tell whether it is
dead or nit. This is because of theopossum’s ability to play dead. It faints and takes all the
characteristics of a dead body and this includes the really foul smell.
At times, the Miami opossum can die in areas where you cannot find it but the odor tells you that there is indeed a dead animal in the vicinity. When you smell such an odor in the house, you need to narrow the searchdownto the roomwhen you smell the odor in a more concentrated way. The architecturein such an area needs to bedetected. You need to askyourself how the Florida animal got in. Where exactly is the hole? Is it above or below?
You then have to sniffaround the place. Walk around as you stick the nose on the wall and floor. You also need a ladder so as to reach the ceiling and smell there too, Even though it is a very gross thing to do.When youare near the body the odor actually changes very sharply. The change isn’t all about the intensity, the nature of the smell also changes. When you find that kind of an area, you can cut a hole in the wall or crawl into the attic or beneath the house to the placewhere the body is located. If you cannot find the Miami opossum, then you have to continue sniffing.
After you have found the Miami opossum’s body, it is time to pick it up and bag it. Makesure that detritusis mopped. You now need to sprat that area using disinfectant to killany pathogen that may be left behind by the body.
