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.

Tallahassee Dead Animal Tip:

What to do if you have a dead animal in the chimney

Often rodents, bats, bird's raccoons, and other creatures will crawl in a chimney only to discover they cannot get out. Often they simply die there from dehydration and starvation. Often young animals on a roof will end up in a chimney while exploring, and the mother cannot get to them, so they are left to die there. Another scenario is a small creature that gets wedged behind the panel of the fire pit becomes trapped and dies. Often the homeowner hears sounds in the chimney, but when they quit they think, the animal is gone. Unfortunately, most of the time, it means the creature has died in your chimney or flue and is slowly rotting away. When it finally gets to the point where you can smell it, so can bugs and other carrion eaters. You might wait for the smell to dissipate, but make no mistake- the stench is going to get horrible long before it goes away. The smell of decay will persist until the carcass is consumed by pests like maggots or completely decays. The process can take more than a month, depending on the temperature outside, size of the body, and airflow. A body not only smells as it rots, but also attracts carrion feeders, creates bacteria and can attract other unwanted creatures. .

Even after the corpse decays, the harmful germs, and bugs can remain indefinitely. If you feel that you cannot handle the job, you can contact a highly qualified professional in your area that will take it for you. A wild animal removal service consists of trained specialists that are well versed in a variety of animal problems and how to handle them. Not only is the job done the right way, you do not have to deal with body disposal. If you choose to DIY, there are a few things to know.

Removing a dead animal, some basic tools and accessories you probably already have on hand. Anything you do not already have can be purchased almost anywhere. Disposable gloves, masks, and goggles are important to assure no particles of dead animals or debris get in your eyes or mouth. You will also want garbage bags, rags, enzyme based disinfectant, and bug spray. Now decide whether you have a better angle from the roof, or from your inside damper. Roof removal will require you will need a long pole fitted with a chimney hook. Damper removal will require a sturdy stick or a hand shovel. No matter what method you choose, put a container lined with a disposable bag under your damper. If you choose the rooftop approach, wear your gear and take a plastic bag and your chimney hook.

Push the hook pole down the chimney, catch the body, and pull it out. Bag it immediately! Spray any bugs that came out with the carcass. Wrap the chimney hook with a rag and soak in disinfectant. Use this to scrub out residual pieces or oozing. Use the bug Spray to eliminate any remaining maggots or other parasites. The bag lined bucket inside should have caught any pieces that fell when you removed the body. Secure that bag and clean the damper. To remove the carcass from the damper, open it and the body should fall into the bag lined bucket. You may need to use a stick or shovel to scrape it out. Once you have removed all pieces of debris and bugs, thoroughly cleaning your damper and chimney. Dispose of the bagged bodies in an outside trash.
