dead animal removal

Suspecting that you have a dead animal on your property is never a pleasant experience; some people may find this upsetting and troubling. It will even be more unsettling if you can't find the source of the nauseating scent; you may be forced to move out of your house temporarily. For businesses, they will be at risk of closing down due to sanitary issues. Our company has designed a systematic process to ensure that the whole treatment will remain organized. After we identified the source of your problem, we will be wearing protective gear to uphold our people and our clients' safety. We will completely seal the dead body with a durable bag and place them inside a box for a secure and proper transfer. We will then disinfect the place and sanitize the area that will keep your house smelling fresh. We will then take the body to our incinerator to ensure proper disposal and prevent disease transmission and contamination. We have removed all types of deceased animals, including adders, seagulls, pigeons, bats, foxes, deer, squirrels, rats, and mice. We can even handle your beloved pets, and upon your request, we can schedule them for cremation. We will make it possible for you to say a proper goodbye to your pet.

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.

Lakeland Dead Animal Tip: How Long Does It Take Rats/Mice to Die After Eating Poison?

While some people might think that mice are adorable in the pet store, having an infestation of them in your house is a different story completely. Within one year, a couple of mice can blow up to a nest of between twenty-four to eighty-four, making your house a literal mouse hotel. Mice can also cause massive destruction in your home: chewing through wires and causing electrical fire; spreading disease and filth; or causing damage to household items.

While there are many ways to get rid of mice on the market today, and more becoming popular every day, the most popular, generally time and cost-effective one is rat poison: a small block of this poison can kill anywhere upwards of half-a-dozen mice, taking care of your infestation quickly, with little mess overall.

After finding out that you have an infestation, and buying your poison, you might wonder how long it will take to rid your house of your furry little invaders. This answer varies depending on the specific brand of poison that you are using, however, many poisons will take anywhere from one to five days to take hold.

A general rule of thumb for all poisons, for both mice and rats, is that after eating a lethal dose of the poison, they will begin to die within one to two days. Typically, this is due to the type of poison that is used in traps, which also makes it lethal to humans. Long-acting anticoagulants (LAAC’s) are often used as an active ingredient in rat poison. These poisons target the mouse’s way of processing vitamin K, which is usually responsible for allowing blood to clot how it is supposed to. This leads to the reasoning behind why the poison takes so long to act on the rodents, as well, as it only affects the future blood circulating in the bloodstream, not that which is already in circulation.

Eventually, though, within one to two days, the rat or mouse will begin spontaneously bleeding, often uncontrollably, and will die.

Many poisons on the market today also ensure protection against ‘double-poisoning’ which means that the mouse or rat goes and eats more poison before dying, leaving a buildup of it in their system, and causing the risk to other animals that might hunt the mice or rats- including household pets- might get a hold of the poisoned rat and hurt themselves.

While this type of protection against ‘double poisoning’ is becoming more and more commonplace for manufacturers of rat poison, you should still practice basic safety when placing poison out for mice and rats, especially when they are areas frequented by children or pets. Store any product that you are not using away from pets or children, and ensure that the bait is left in locations that either your dog or children will not come upon on accident. Also, ensure that you collect and dispose of dead rodents, as well as any left-over bait, within a timely manner to prevent either animals from eating the poisoned rodents or the left-over bait.
