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.

Athens-Clarke Dead Animal Tip: Why do rats die inside houses or attics?

Rats can be quite vicious. They are also gluttons and of course they cannot resist eating anything and everything. They feed on any foodstuff they find lying about in the house and are ready to feast on whatever they come across. Sometimes, they even die inside your house or attic. This is when it makes sense to find out the reason why they die inside houses or attics. Here is a brief look at possible reasons. The first thing to keep in mind is rats will make your home their home. They can dig tunnels and they are also ready to make nests. If they make their home in your home, there is a strong likelihood that they may die within.

Predator attacks
Rats can die inside houses or attics because they were attacked by a predator. Cats are a prime example of the predator that feeds on rats. They are quick and can easily catch and kill rats. They love the flesh of the rat and will hunt them and once they find one or more, cats will kill them and eat them.

Injuries can lead to death
Second, rats can die inside a house or attic because they are not strong and can easily get injured by other rats or by a big animal such as your pet dog. Once they get injured, rats will retreat to their nests to nurse their wounds but this is also where you are most likely to come across a dead rat that has succumbed to its wound.

Die from a disease
Rats carry a number of diseases. Some of these diseases are actually quite fatal and can kill the rat. A rat may have died because of a disease and the common illnesses that can kill rats included weight loss and falling hairs. If you notice a dead rat that has died because of an illness, you should call the animal removal service to get rid of the body.

Poison kills
Rats can also die because they were poisoned. There are many people who use rat poison to kill rats and once the rat ingests this poison, it will soon die. Even if it has consumed poison left in your neighborhood’s house, it may wander into your house and die there. If you find a dead rat, make sure you dispose of its dead body immediately as you don’t want your pet dog feeding on it because your pet could die from eating the poisoned flesh of the dead rat. Sometimes, rats die in attics or houses because they are very young and were abandoned by their parents. They are not able to defend themselves and are also not good at fending for themselves. They can die from various things including hunger and an attack by a predator.
