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.

Bridgeport Dead Animal Tip: How to properly dispose of a dead animal carcass

The disposal of dead animal carcasses should be according to established guidelines and methods. The proper disposal of dead animal carcasses is important to prevent the spread of diseases to other animals and humans. In this article, we highlight the different accepted methods of properly disposing of dead animal carcasses. Let's begin by highlighting the importance of following the local laws in disposing of dead animal carcasses. The laws guiding the disposal of animal carcasses vary across locations. Always find out what applies to your location and act accordingly. Although there are general laws that apply to the disposal of all kinds of critters, regulations typically differ across locations and according to the animal. The generally accepted methods of disposing of dead animal carcasses are highlighted below.

Landfills are accepted measures of disposing of dead animal carcasses in certain areas. Municipal landfills in certain locations accept dead animal carcasses. Dead animal disposal through landfills may be associated with requirements such as double bagging the carcass. It may also be an expensive option, depending on the location and associated requirements. If the landfill is an acceptable method of dead animal carcass disposal in an area, animal collectors may serve the area. Animal collectors take the dead animal carcass to the landfill, according to the established requirements.

Dead animal carcasses could be buried, if this is a suitable method in your locality. The disposal of dead animals through the burial method involves digging a pit, filling it with the carcass, and covering the carcass with soil. The carcass should be wrapped in plastic bags and placed in boxes or coffins. This method is especially suitable for areas with a deep water table and non-porous soil. Burial is an unsuitable method for getting rid of carcasses of critters in areas with a lot of sand. Requirements such as the reinforcement of the pit may also apply. Burial sites and practices must be in line with the local regulations. For example, areas prone to floods and areas close to underground water sources are unsuitable burial sites. It is particularly difficult to bury animal carcasses in areas during winter, especially in colder climates. Burial, as a method of disposal of animal carcasses, is highly restricted as improper burial practices could cause the outbreak of diseases.

Dead animal carcasses could be incinerated. Onsite and mobile incinerators are available for the disposal of dead animal carcasses. This is perhaps the safest method of getting rid of the carcasses of infected critters. The incineration of dead animal carcasses is heavily guided by local regulations. Operators of incinerators require licenses and have to abide by the required regulations. Incinerators should be operated to prevent contamination and air pollution from bad odors. Incineration is effective for reducing the mass of the carcass and destroying pathogens. After the carcass is incinerated, the ash could be sent to a landfill. Incineration is described as a capital and labor-intensive method.

Dead animal carcasses could be rendered. Rendering could be described as a process of recycling dead animal carcasses and converting the carcass into pathogen-free byproducts. These byproducts could be agricultural feed. Rendering generates useful material as well as wastes that could be sent to incinerators. It is noteworthy that rendering is not a popular method of dead animal carcass disposal because it is not considered environmentally friendly. There are also chances of disease transmission, especially during the transport to the remote rendering sites.

This is another dead animal carcass disposal method that involves the recycling of the waste. The carcass is converted into organic matter through the natural process of decomposition. This method is particularly applied on farms and is considered a cost-effective method. Bacteria and fungi decompose the carcass into organic matter that could be applied as fertilizers. Farmers could compost dead animal carcasses to generate fertilizers. Proper methods of disposal of dead animal carcasses prevent the transmission of diseases. The method of disposal should also be cost-effective and efficient. It is noteworthy that the acceptable methods of dead animal carcass disposable differ across locations. Always check local guidelines before disposing of animal carcasses.
