Dead Animal Removal

Professional Wildlife Control in Treasure Valley in Idaho and Southern California

We understand that finding a dead animal in or around your home or business can be upsetting and unnerving. Call in the experts at J&J Termite and Pest Control for help! We will make sure your space is free from unwanted pests or animals that have passed nearby. 

If removal of dead rodent is possible we will do so. However, if we are unable to locate the source, we will place an odor control bag in the general vicinity of the odor source. These odor bags will assist in controlling/eliminating the odor during the course of decomposition.

If you need an animal removed, give our Ventura County office a call at (805) 900-4008 or our Treasure Valley office a call at (208) 408-1992. You can also send us a message online to get started!

Signs of a Dead Animal in Your Home

If you suspect there may be a dead animal in your home, there are several signs to look for. First, you may notice a strong and persistent odor coming from a particular area of your house. 

This is often the most prominent sign that something has died. Another telltale sign is the presence of flies or other insects in your home that have congregated around the carcass. 

Finally, you may see maggots or other larvae near the site of the deceased animal. These creatures only feed on decaying flesh, so their presence is a strong indicator. If you notice any of these signs, your suspicions are most likely correct.

What Are the Most Common Areas For Animal Carcasses?

An animal carcass can be found anywhere in your house. However, if you are aware of the most common locations, you may be able to locate it more easily.

  • In the attic, animal carcasses may be found in insulation, behind walls, or in storage boxes. 
  • In the garage, animal carcasses may be found in car engines, on shelves, or in storage containers. 
  • Under the house, animal carcasses may be found in the crawlspace or basement. 
  • In the crawlspace, animal carcasses may be found beneath floorboards or inside ductwork. 

While these are the most common places for animal carcasses to be found, they can really be anywhere.

How To Handle Dead Rodents

Dead Rodent removal is a multi-step process that consists of:

  • Inspection of home, attic, and/or crawl area
  • If openings are identified during inspection, make exclusion recommendations
  • Locating the dead rodent / source of odor
  • Removing the dead rodent if physically accessible and safe
  • If unable to physically remove the source, an odor control bag will be placed to assist in controlling/eliminating the odor during decomposition

What Are the Benefits of Professional Dead Animal Removal?

Dead animal removal is an essential service offered by professional pest control companies, and it offers numerous benefits for property owners. Prompt and proper removal of dead animals can prevent potential health hazards, unpleasant odors, and property damage.

Here are some key benefits of dead animal removal services provided by pest control companies:

Health and Safety

Dead animals can pose serious health risks. They can attract disease-carrying pests like flies, maggots, and rodents, which can spread diseases to humans and pets. Dead animals can also release harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites into the environment, which can contaminate your air and water.

Professional pest control companies have the expertise and equipment to safely handle and dispose of dead animals, minimizing the risk of disease transmission and protecting the health and safety of your family.

Odor Control

The smell of a decomposing animal can be extremely unpleasant and can quickly permeate the surrounding area. It can be especially problematic in residential or commercial properties where the smell can disrupt normal activities and create an uncomfortable living environment.

Our dead animal removal services can effectively eliminate foul odors by locating and removing the dead animal and sanitizing the affected area. This can help restore a fresh and clean environment, improving the comfort and well-being of your home.

Property Protection

Dead animals can cause damage to property if not removed promptly. For example, rodents and other scavengers may be attracted to the carcass, leading to further infestations and property damage. Additionally, the decomposition process can release bodily fluids and other substances that can stain or damage flooring, walls, and other surfaces.
