I caught a pest! What should I do?
You don't need to do anything. The dead pest will either be scavenged by another animal or decay into the environment.
A dead animal will start to smell after a few days, especially in warm weather. To avoid this, we recommend removing the body from the trap stand and burying the carcass under a few centimetres of soil or compost. If that’s not an option for where you live - pop it in the rubbish.
