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.

Annapolis Dead Animal Tip: Does a dead animal carcass cause flies?

There are times when flies in large numbers start to come out of a particular location. In other instances, you may notice many flies accumulating at a certain place. A dead animal carcass attracts flies. These flies however are not the same as the common housefly. In fact, the flies found around carcasses have a shiny appearance and they also have blue and green or even a metallic shiny color. For this reason, flies that surround a dead animal carcass are known as blow flies and in some instances, they are called bottle flies.

Buzzing noise
Flies that surround a dead animal carcass will irritate you because they make a buzzing noise which is very troublesome. It is not a coincidence that these flies accumulate at a particular place. The reason for this is they are attracted by dead animal carcasses. It is important to be wary about these flies because they are the bearers of different diseases. When these flies sit on carcasses, they not only obtain their supply of food, but also, they carry many germs as well as decomposing agents which are borne by the legs and wings of the fly. When these flies come into contact with human beings or their food, they can disperse the germs directly and thereby they pose a health risk.

Find out where the flies are coming from
Thus, if you notice flies around a particular place, you should first of all find out where the flies are coming from and then you need to dispose of the carcass in order to not only get rid of the flies but to also control the number of flies.

Attracted by dead animal carcasses
Dead animal carcasses do attract flies and in great numbers. The sad part is the blow fly is able to detect the presence of dead animal carcasses from many miles. These flies resemble a bluebottle and hence they get the name bottle fly. The worrying part is these flies will work in conjunction to spread diseases and this is why they are a danger to humans and their pets.

Transmitter of diseases
After these flies have made their way to the dead animal carcass, they will then carry diseases with their feet and wings. If it enters your home or sits on your food, then the disease it was carrying will be transferred to you and your family members. These flies may start flocking around the carcass about an hour after the animal died. It can leave its larva and eggs in your food and in this way, it becomes a major health risk. Some of these flies feed on the dead animal while others will lay their eggs and some work to attract other scavengers.
