Dead Animal Removal
Mortality is a fact of life for all living creatures big and small. The most commonly seen type of dead animal removal is that of a dead rat or squirrel in an attic or wall, often when the dead animal's decaying carcass causes serious odor problems, swarms of flies, or even stains on the ceiling or wall of a home or office. If you discover any deceased animal in your home we recommend immediate removal for your health and safety. After the animal dies, it starts to decompose which can attract other animal pests. Decomposing wild animals can also be the source of insects (such as parasites like tick and fleas). As part of the decaying process, animal carcasses support the growth of bacteria and molds which are hazards to anyone's health. The area where the dead animals lay needs to be deodorized and disinfected to get rid of the foul smell, pests, and the mold and bacteria. All of the parasites that were living on the dead animal also need to be thoroughly exterminated, before they find a new host (on pets, or humans). It is important to get the problem of having a dead animal on your property remedied before it leads to larger problems for your health or your property.
Do you have a dead animal problem?
- You will detect a strong putrid smell. The dead animal could be under the building, in the attic, in the walls, or even in the air conditioning duct work. The awful smell will not go away until the dead animal is removed, or the dead animal carcass thoroughly decomposes (which could take months).
- Flies swarm around an area of a home or business. When flies are seen flying all around an area of a home or business building, it frequently means that there is a dead animal in a wall, in the attic, or under the structure.
- Pets or humans become infested with parasites. The ecto-parasites that once lived on the dead animal - fleas (which can transmit Typhus), ticks (which can transmit Lime Disease), mites (which can cause Scabies),and lice (which can cause Hair Loss) – look for new hosts, such as pets or humans.
