We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:

  • Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
  • When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
  • Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
  • Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
  • Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
  • Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house

Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.

Raleigh Dead Animal Tip: What to Do If You Have a Dead Animal Under Your House

Several wild animals, including raccoons, opossums, rodents, and more, have learned to depend on human settlements for shelter. The crawlspace is one of the most common spots wild animals reside in because of easy access. An animal residing under your house will leave droppings and may cause damages to the wooden structure underneath your house. However, nothing comes close to dealing with a dead animal under your house. The first sign is usually a foul smell rising from under your house as the decomposition process starts. The carcass may also attract flies, cockroaches, bugs, and scavengers.

Why Animals Die Under Your House
There are several reasons why you might have a dead animal under your house. The three most common reasons include:

The use of poison
If you used poison for animal control, then there’s a strong chance the animal consumed the poison.

A dying animal will naturally retreat to a secluded spot to rest. The crawlspace is an ideal location for a dying animal to remain hidden.

Brought in by pets
It’s not unheard of for a dog or cat to bring rubbish from the garbage can back to your home. That’s why that carcass under your house might have been brought in by your pet.

Steps to Remove Dead Animal Under Your House
How the dead animal got under your crawl space matter less to you. What matters more is how you can promptly get rid of the carcass. Here’s how to do that:

Don’t Leave It Too Late
This might sound redundant but it’s surprising the number of people that fail to deal with the signs they notice ASAP. If you observe a foul smell coming from the crawlspace or you notice increased pest activity there, investigate the problem to find out what’s wrong.

Stay Protected
Before you begin the search, you have to ensure that you’re well protected. Why? Carcasses of dead animals are breeding grounds for diseases. If the dead animal was rabid or sick, it exposes you to an even greater health risk. That’s why you have to avoid direct contact with the dead animal, its droppings or urine, and other bodily fluids. That’s why you should wear gloves, protective goggles, and a bodysuit.

Follow the Smell
Chances are under your house is quite a lot of space. Therefore, searching through the entire space might be too difficult. To help streamline your search, make use of your nose. By following the foul smell, you can easily pinpoint the exact location of the carcass.

Remove the Carcass
Once you locate the carcass, pick it up and put it inside a garbage bag. Also, remove any maggots that might be feeding on the carcass, as well as other remnants, and place it in the bag. Then seal off the bag to prevent the spread of diseases.

Dispose of the Carcass
There are several disposal methods, including burning (or incineration), burying, or giving it to a waste collection service. The approved method is what is stipulated as such by your local wildlife authority, so make sure you check with them.

Disinfect the Place
Even after removing the carcass, the microscopic bacteria may still pose multiple health risks. That’s why you need to disinfect the space. Spray an enzyme-based disinfectant to destroy all microscopic biohazards.

Odor Control
If possible, let some air out so that the foul smell can dissipate rapidly. You can also make use of natural deodorants like baking soda, vinegar, or ground coffee to soak up the foul smell and restore freshness to your home.

Carry Out the Necessary Repairs
You have to repair the damages the animal might have caused under your house. This may include torn insulation, chewed wood, or damaged electrical wires. If an animal died under your house, then it must have gotten in somehow. You need to find the entry hole and seal it up, so more wildlife doesn’t take up residence under your house.

Wrap Up
If you have a dead animal under your house, the key to solving the problem is to promptly follow these steps. But if it seems like too much work, then you should contact a wildlife professional to help take care of the problem.
