Is there a product that kills mice and rats that when they die, it does not cause a smell?

Answer:

Unfortunately the "special poison bait that will stop decaying rodents from smelling" is a myth. No known rodenticide will have this affect.  While there are odor control products that will help eliminate the odors resulting from decaying rodents, there are none known poison baits that prevent such odors. Please take a few moments to read our article Myths About Rodents to help sort out rodent myths and facts. The only way to avoid having an odor indoors is to use snap traps and glue boards so you will know exactly where the rodent has died and you will be able to remove the carcass.
