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.

Harrisburg Dead Animal Tip: How to get a dead animal out of your car

It is very possible for animals to die in your car. When they do, you will have the carcasses to deal with. Having dead animal carcasses in your car is always an unpleasant experience. The smell of the decomposing carcass would make being in your car a very unpleasant experience. It is also unhealthy to be exposed to the odor of the decomposing critter in a closed space like a car. Carcasses are generally hazardous materials. The danger of exposure to carcasses is compounded by the fact that other pests are typically attracted to carcasses.

Rodents and other small critters could infest cars and die there. You should work towards getting a dead animal out of your car as soon as you notice it. Here are the steps for getting rid of dead animals out of your car. To remove carcasses from your car, you will need materials such as a flashlight, face mask, gloves, and plastic bags. You will also need deodorizing materials. The smell of dead animals in a car is usually very strong because it is a small closed space. Rodents, the commonest critters that die in cars, also produce a strong odor as they decompose. Follow the odor of the decomposing carcass to find it. The area with the strongest odor has the carcass.

Critters could enter the air circulation system and die there. If this is the case, turning on the car will help to identify the location of the carcass. The smell will become stronger when the car is turned on if the critter is in the air system. Finding carcasses in a car requires a thorough inspection. A thorough inspection will require pulling out the cabin air filter system, removing the seats, and lifting the carpet. Afterward, check thoroughly for any indications of pest activity in the area. Check for food pieces, droppings, urine, and hairs. You can also check for the materials the critters use for making nests.

You should also remove all the removable parts of the dashboard and inspect them. You can look under the car with a flashlight too. This is to identify small spaces through which the critters can enter the car and nest.

The engine area and the general area under the hood make a great nesting spot for different critters. Check this area specifically for the activity of the critters. A thorough inspection following the odor of the decaying carcass will lead you to the location of the critter. After finding the location of the critter, remove the critter wearing a glove. The glove is to prevent direct contact with the critter. Be sure to remove all pieces of the remains of the critter. Also remove other pests that may have infested the area, such as maggots.

Remove the remains of the critters and place them in a plastic bag. Dispose of the carcass yourself according to established regulations or make plans for an expert to handle the carcass disposal. The cleanup and deodorization of the area are especially important when dealing with the remains of critters. A deep cleaning will remove all the particles that you missed. This is an important process for making your car completely hazard-free. To deodorize your car after removing the carcass and cleaning the area, you can use any of the natural options or commercially available products. The household products you could use to deodorize your car include coffee grounds, baking soda, activated charcoal, and white vinegar. They work by absorbing the bad odor to eliminate it from an area.

An animal can enter your car and die there. Rodents and small animals are common culprits. If you suspect that a dead animal is in your car, follow the odor to identify its location. After identifying the location of the carcass, remove it and dispose of it according to the local regulations.

You should also disinfect the area to remove all traces of hazardous materials. It is also important that you identify the entry points of the critters and seal them. If your car has attractants such as food particles, you should also remove them. Keeping your car clean at all times will help keep it unattractive to different critters that could infest it. We should also mention that you could opt for professional critter removal if you’re not up to removing the critters yourself.
