Dead Animal Odor Control and Removal

Wildlife, like all living things, will eventually die. When this unfortunate circumstance happens, the deceased animals need to be removed and disposed of properly. Do not try this yourself unless you are a trained expert.

Here is a list of the “Top 10” dead animal complaints we receive:

  • Horrendous odor inside your home (especially if they have died somewhere in the house)
  • Strong odors on the outside of your home
  • Flies swarming around the carcass
  • If outside other live animals fed ding the dead animal
  • Health risk concerns
  • Dead animals potentially can carry multiple diseases
  • If dead inside of the house stains may appear on the walls
  • Dead animal stuck in my wall
  • Dead animal stuck in the chimney
  • Dead animal stuck in heating or cooling vents

The fastest and easiest solution is to have them removed.  

So, the removal of dead animals from a house can either be simple or very complex.

No matter if it is simple or hard, it’s going to be dirty. This is not a job for the experts like Thomas Wildlife control. Most issues arise because the animals just don’t die in plain sight but rather in difficult and sometimes challenging places to reach in a home. This presents many challenges.

Issues such as location can and do present many challenges. If you find one more might come back to take up the residency left behind.

Again, let the professionals remove the animal. Professionals also remove odors, de-sanitize the areas, check for relatives, etc.

Dead animals can be a nuisance:  

The number one problem with dead animals around your home is the smell. In just a short amount of time, it can become unbearable and unsafe. Within three days of an animal dying, the smell will peak, and the strength of the odor depends on factors such as the following.

The factors that contribute to the smell include the size of the deceased animal, the species, location of the carcass in the house, state of decomposition, temperature, humidity, and airflow, just to name a few.

Dead animal diseases:

While not experts in this field, there are certain things that we see and smell when removing dead animals.

Most are covered with parasites like ticks, fleas, mites with all these microorganisms potentially able to carry and transmit disease.

The real trick is to find the dead animal and remove it. After years of experience, it has become rather easy to locate most dead animals.
