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.

New Orleans Dead Animal Tip: How to Find a Dead Animal Inside a House?

Inside houses, pests of all kinds are often hidden from view. They live in walls, attics, or other cavities that are not easily noticeable. Even worse, if the pest problem persists, you will eventually have a dead animal lying somewhere in your home, unbeknownst to you. Such pests include rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, and even a neighbor’s pet. Early signs will be almost invisible. You may notice a mildly foul smell and think nothing of it. After all, an odd smell isn’t that out of the ordinary. Then, gradually, day by day, the signs grow stronger. The next time you catch a whiff, it smells rancid. After a few days, the dead animal is in full-scale decomposition. The smell of rotting meat is almost unmissable. At this point, you scour the house, searching for the carcass in the open. But no matter where you look, you cannot locate the body. There is only one conclusion: it is hidden from view. If you find yourself in such a situation, follow the steps below:

Hunt for Clues
Animals as small as mice can be hidden in open locations where you would not think to look. Behind sofas or wardrobes, underneath floorboards, or even in the walls. Leave no stone unturned (or corner unexamined).

Your most potent clue is the smell: you can follow it to a dead animal’s locations. Remember to take account of wind flow and drafts through your property. If you have a dog, it may be useful to let them hunt for the animal, if possible. Dogs have a profoundly strong sense of smell.

Another common sign is the presence of insects. That doesn’t just include sightings but the sound of buzzing. Several days after an animal has died, ants and flies will be attracted to the carcass. Such clues are an indicator of possible locations.

Look Everywhere
Meticulously go through the attic and rafters. Look inside the insulation. Check basements, crawl spaces, and any other area unique to your property where an animal could have reached and died. Your last resort will be to check inside the walls. Many homeowners are loathed to cut into walls due to the cost of repair. The alternative is to wait it out: smells typically dissipate within two weeks. However, if left, the smell can linger for much longer.

Close Up Cracks and Holes
Once you’ve located the source of the smell, attempt to remove the carcass. Also, be careful not to directly touch the body, as it is likely a carrier of diseases. Next, seal up any holes or cracks in the wall nearby. If flies are present, then take appropriate action with a preferred method of killing the flies. The aim is to keep the smell contained and prevent flies from reproducing.

Use a Cleanser
Not all carcasses will be removable or even reachable. In such cases, your only option is to spray a deodorizer through a hole towards the carcass. You may even need to cut a small hole in the wall to spray the deodorizer, enzymatic cleaner, or odor neutralizer.

Open Windows and Doors
Shutting doors and windows might seem like an excellent way to contain the smell. However, you are merely increasing the concentration in one locality. By doing so, it is sure to persist for longer. Instead, open doors and windows to let the air circulate and remove the smell by allowing fresh air. Fans are another useful tool for bringing in plenty of fresh air from outside. Also, consider air filtration systems. If you manage to locate a dead animal and don’t know what to do, call a professional. There is no need to battle on alone, removing the carcass. Pest removal pros are trained and experienced in removing dead animals. They will be able to advise on proper deodorization methods. It may cost a little more, but you’re guaranteed that the job will be done effectively and efficiently.
