Strong odor is usually a sign there is possibly an animal carcass on your premises. When an animal is sick or wounded, its first instinct is to find a place to hide. Where do they hide? Usually underneath your home; or in your attic and walls. An animal that has died in your walls or under the home can be difficult to retrieve. We have the tools and the skills to remove these carcasses. We will also look for where the animal entered the home. Sealing up these entry points will prevent other animals from getting in.
- Rats or squirrels dying in attic
- Animal odors from walls
- Opossums, skunks, squirrels or raccoons dying under the house
- Animal remain in yard
Performing Dead Animal Odor Control
We often find mothballs in the attic or crawl space in use to cover an animal odor or smell in The Woodlands homes. This can help with the smell somewhat, but it does not take care of the problem. Leaving an animal carcass in the attic can lead to more problems. As the animal decomposes it will attract other animals and insects to the body. This may make your animal infestation worse. The best
thing you can do is remove the decomposing animal and seal up where it got into the home. Animal exclusion ensures the area is properly sealed off to prevent any animals from returning.
Safely removing animal carcasses takes experience and knowledge. It isn’t always a simple process. It usually includes crawling into tight, cramped spaces in potentially hazardous conditions. The animal must be found, removed and properly disposed of. Then the area must be cleaned and decontaminated. It is also critical to perform animal exclusion.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do you get rid of dead animals?
A. Unfortunately, there is no magic spray or device that you can use to make them go away. Perfumes and masking agents won’t help. The use of a moth ball or other repellents often fails during this process and is not a legal repellent for wildlife.
Q. Can you get rabies from a dead animal?
A. Rabies aren’t able to go through unbroken skin. People can get rabies via a bite from a rabid animal or possibly through scratches, abrasions, open wounds or mucous membranes in contact with saliva or brain tissue from a rabid animal.
