OH man, I feel for you. I hate that smell. Depending on the weather, it can last from 2 to 3 weeks. I hate mice and I hate to smell them even more. A bowl of vinegar setting in the room will help some.

Charcoal brickets will also help with the smell. I answered your discussion from my email so I did not read the comments first. This time of year, the mice are looking for a warm place to stay in winter. Often a female will be expecting little ones. They tend to have alot of little ones and when they grow up, you are going to have trouble. I feel so sorry for you. It is not anything that ykou are doing wrong. It is just the way creatures are.

I put a pot of water with cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg and ginger and bring it to a boil. Simmer it all day long and add water when it is low. You can also use one of those electric potpourri pots.

Bless your heart!! I really don't know Terry. I would think it wouldn't take that long. Their little bodies should dry up pretty quick. Hehe When I had the fish smell, someone suggested to use some baking soda in some cups or something and it took the smell out of her closet in a few days. Try setting out some baking soda in some bowls or something. I sure hope it goes away real soon! Bay Lay Gray xx

Call an exterminator. They can get them out. If you can't find them to dipose of them you want to get rid of them fast. This is a real health hazard now. Ekk. Take care of yourself.

Dont know but it sounds horrible. Maybe you should call in an exterminator maybe they can pinpoint where it is, I think rotting flesh is toxic and harmful to children, if you have some you may want to get rid of that.
