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.
Reno Dead Animal Tip: Why Do Raccoons Die Inside Houses or Attics? How to Remove.
If you’ve ever found a dead raccoon in your home, you might have wondered how they ended up inside? After all, raccoons are sizable creatures, more commonly associated with the great outdoors. However, their size is a critical factor in their deaths. Somehow, they’ve managed to squeeze into a space in which they can’t get themselves out. That’s commonly an attic but could be throughout your home or even the wall cavities. Another factor that’s often not considered is raccoon death after sealing up. If a property has been evicted, raccoons may find themselves locked inside. Raccoons are not renowned for their climbing abilities and so struggle to get out. Without food or water, they’ll inevitably starve, overhead, or suffer dehydration.
Here’s a list of the more common reasons raccoons die inside your house:
Stress: After finding themselves trapped in a location, raccoons are alone. Most often, they thrive in teams, working together to hunt for resources. Devoid of a team, raccoons can rapidly succumb to stress in a matter of days.
Fights: Fights are common in the animal world. Raccoons fight for food or a mate. Typically, there are no serious injuries. However, if one animal is severely injured, they may seek refuge in a house and then die there.
Poisoning: If a raccoon has been poisoned, it may look for a refuge, safe from predators. That could mean an attic or a house, increasing their chance of dying inside.
Abandonment: If a mother raccoon is killed while hunting for food, it is unlikely her offspring will survive. Many will die in their nests, which may be inside your house or attic.
Disease: In the animal world, diseases are a constant threat. Houses offer a safe location with plentiful food. Therefore, many ill raccoons will be attracted to the site.
Relocation: Animals survive based on their knowledge of their environment. When they’re relocated to a new location, they can quickly become lost or disorientated. That may lead them to hunt for food inside houses or attics. When inside, their poor climbing abilities often cause them to become trapped, with no hope of escape.
How to remove a raccoon from your house or attic Humans are used to living till old age. For animals, it’s a harsher world. Raccoons often don’t live past the age of two or three. With high mortality and an attraction to houses, it’s little surprise raccoons often die inside.
But what to do if you suspect a raccoon?
Well, the first sign you will notice is the smell. Over a few days, the smell gradually becomes more pungent until it affects the entire house. That’s when you know there’s a dead animal. Follow the strength of the smell to the carcass. Make sure to check all potential locations. Attics, crawlspaces, outbuildings, under floorboards, and even wall spaces are all places where raccoons can die. Other useful clues include staining on the ceiling or walls and the presence of flies.
Disposing of the raccoon
You will need to cut a hole in the wall to access the raccoon in a worst-case scenario. However, in most situations, you’ll be able to gather up the dead animal without causing any significant damage. Make sure to use heavy-duty plastic bags and always wear gloves and protective equipment. Animals – especially raccoons – are vectors for all manner of diseases. Therefore, be careful. Once you’ve managed to bag up the animal, you’ll need to dispose of the carcass. We advise calling your local animal control authority for advice on disposal. Depending on your location, the regulations may be particularly stringent. Two potential options are burial and burning. However, in dense urban neighborhoods, these may not be applicable. If you do not want to handle the raccoon, there are always professional pest control services. They will have all the necessary equipment required for animal removal and may even dispose of the body. If the animal is stuck in the wall space – but you can extract it from the attic – a specialist may be able to remove it without cutting a hole in your wall.
