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.
South Bend Dead Animal Tip:
What to do if I find a dead deer outside?
Finding a dead deer outside is not quite an anomaly. The critters are more commonly found in the countryside, especially in rural areas. Although finding a dead deer is more common in rural areas, the dead critters could be found in cities and other urban areas.
Let's consider what you should do if you find a dead deer outside.
Why a deer could die outside
A vehicle could hit the deer and kill it. This could be the case when you find a dead deer on the side of the road. The whole body of the deer could be intact.
You may also find a deer that died of a sickness outside. The deer could succumb to the symptoms of diseases and die in a public or private area.
What to do about a dead deer
Since it is a large animal, deer carcasses are much more difficult to handle than the carcasses of other critters. The steps to take after finding a dead deer outside are dependent on the location of the carcass: whether it is on public or private property.
Like every other animal, deer carcasses will begin to decompose a few days after death. The decomposing carcass will produce strong horrible smells. The size of the carcass particularly contributes to the strength of the smell.
In addition to the smell of the decomposing critter, the size and the outdoor location makes it easy to find the carcass.
When you find a deer carcass on public property, the authorities should be in charge of the removal. If the carcass was on the side of the road, you could call the local transportation authorities. They will be in charge of the removal and disposal of the carcass.
If the dead deer is on public property but not on the road, the local animal control services should be in charge of the removal and disposal.
When you find a dead deer outside on private property, the removal and disposal of the carcass are up to the property owner.
Deer carcasses are large and will produce a horrible odor, an important reason for removing them as soon as possible. The carcass will also attract other pests, including flies to the area. The size of deer carcasses will cause them to attract a lot of pests that could spread diseases and cause a serious mess.
The removal of carcasses like deer is best left to the professionals because of the size and special requirements. Professionals offer these specialized services across different locations. If you find a dead deer on your property, your best option is to engage the services of these professionals to get rid of the carcass.
Professional carcass removal services typically include removal, disposal, and cleanup. Repair services may also be included to fix the damage associated with the presence of the critters in the area
After the removal of deer carcasses, it is important that measures to keep the critters out for good are taken. This is especially necessary for private properties. Since deer removal from private properties could be quite expensive, it is best to eliminate the chances of attracting deer on your property in the first place with prevention and exclusion measures.
These measures including fencing, growing unattractive plants, and applying homemade repellents
Fencing is a general method for limiting the accessibility of deer to an area. The access of the critters to a fenced area could be completely eliminated. Habitat modification measures such as the growth of plants that the critters do not find attractive will also help to reduce their activity in an area.
Homemade repellents could be applied to get rid of deer in an area by targeting the sense of smell of the critters. Such homemade repellents include garlic, hot pepper, and ammonia. Hot pepper sprays could be applied to susceptible areas. Ammonia-soaked rags placed in an area could deter the activity of the critters.
When you find a deer outside, consider its location in handling it. If you find the carcass on your private property, focus on getting rid of the critter and preventing future occurrences.
