Is Final rodenticide place packs a dehydrating poison?

We know we can poison them, but they just go in the walls and die and it smells horrible. Looking for a product that dehydrates and dries up the dead rat without the smell.

Answer:

There are no products on the market like what you speak of.  It has been a myth for years that a product like this exists, but it does not.  Anticoagulants prevent the rodents blood from clotting and the rodent will die from internal bleeding.  Contradictory to popular belief, there is no poison that will make a rodent go outside to die.  If it does die in a wall it will smell for a short amount of time.  There is no poison that will make the rodent not smell.  If there was then no professional company would every use anything else around homeowners.  There are other ways to kill and/or capture mice such as glue boards and snap traps.
