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.

Baltimore Dead Animal Tip: How to Properly Dispose of a Dead Animal Carcass

Whether you’ve recently had a rodent problem and you’ve installed traps, or you’ve just discovered a dead animal on your property, you’re faced with the same problem: disposal.

So, how do you properly dispose of a dead animal carcass?

Contact your local health department
Depending on your location, various rules and regulations will apply. In rural areas, you’re likely to have more freedom about disposing of the carcass, including burial and burning. Whereas, in a densely populated urban environment, your neighbors may complain if you start burning rats in your backyard. Therefore, speak to your local officials to get the go-ahead for disposal.

The problems of burial
Burial may seem like the best way to handle the carcass. After all, it limits your exposure. However, there are several complications to consider. First, diseases and parasites may leach into the surrounding soil, which in the close-quarters of an urban location can cause many problems. Next, there are probably pipes and wires running below your property. Digging a deep enough hole – 3 to 4 feet – risks damaging this vital infrastructure. The last thing you want to do is burst a pipe or trigger an electrical failure. Plus, if you fail to dig down far enough, you may still be faced with the smell of a rotting carcass. That means you’ll have to dig the body back up or just leave it. Decomposition can take weeks or months to fully complete, meaning you have to put up with the smell for all that time. That’s without considering the scavengers who will dig in your yard hunting for food. If they can smell it, they will dig for it. Imagine waking up to find the corpse of a dead rat spread across your yard.

What about burning?
Once again, in rural environments, burning is a definite option, not in urban settings. However, if you have space, build a sizable bonfire and place the carcass inside. The fire will need to be hot enough to incinerate the carcass and not just cook it. If you have a pet you can’t bury, then contact your local animal hospital. They’ll provide you with the details for cremation.

Throwing in the trash
For small animals like mice, it may not be a problem. But for large animals like rats and squirrels, garbage companies will complain about disposing of dead animals. They may even refuse to take the trash, leaving you back at square one. Even worse, the carcass may attract scavengers to your trash cans. For those responsible for disposing of garbage, scavengers pose a significant risk. If you decide to throw the carcass into the trash, remember to triple bag or use a durable plastic container. Decomposition will occur immediately after death. If a carcass is left to rot in a bin for a week, the stench will be considerable.

Animal services
Your local animal services or pest control will have reliable and legal methods for removing dead animal carcasses. Give them a call to find out what you need to do, and ask if they accept dead animal body disposals. If yes, then the problem is solved. You may have to pay a nominal fee, however.

To recap
There are numerous methods for the disposal of a dead animal body. However, these will depend on your circumstances. Before disposing of a carcass, you should always contact your local authorities to find out the correct procedure. In rural areas, regulations are likely to be laxer, meaning burning or burial are viable options. You can still consider these in an urban environment, but be aware of the possible consequences. These include attracting scavengers, leaching diseases into the soil, and creating a stench. For animals bigger than a mouse, trash disposal is ill-advised. If you are disposing of a dead animal carcass, remember to triple bag or use a sealable container. You do not want to attract scavengers. If you’re struggling, contact your local pest control or animal services, and they’ll provide you with details for reliable and legal disposal.
