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.

Allentown Dead Animal Tip: Why do raccoons die inside houses or attics?

Raccoons are wild animals that sometimes come into your home. Not only that but often they make their way to your attic. Once in your home or attic, they will build their nests and sometimes they will even end up dying inside your house or attic. Read on if you want to know why raccoons die inside houses or attics.

Isolation and stress kills
The first reason for raccoons dying in your house or attic is they are isolated and stressed. Isolation kills raccoons like nothing else. Since they like to live together, when a raccoon becomes isolated it will have to survive on its own. If they do not have other raccoons to keep them company, they will become tense and stressed and this is what kills them sooner or later.

Second, raccoons die in houses or attics because the homeowner may have left some poison which the raccoon consumes. There are some poisons that can paralyze the raccoon and if they eat something lethal, then they will first suffer from paralysis and then they will die.

Fight each other to the death
A third reason why raccoons die in the house or attic is they have got into a fight with another raccoon. Since they are territorial by nature, they will fight each other for space and for mating. When they fight, the male raccoon in particular will fight fiercely till their opponent dies. You can tell that a raccoon died in your house or attic in a fight when you see a real mess there.

Raccoons can die because they contracted a disease. They can suffer from a variety of illnesses and diseases and these can kill the raccoon. When a raccoon falls ill, it will normally try to leave its nesting place but if they cannot escape your house or attic, then it will die there.

Defending babies
Fifth, raccoons can also die because the mother raccoon died defending its babies. Baby raccoons are known to wander about without having a good idea where they are going. Your pet or cat can come across a baby raccoon and will attack and kill it. Alternatively, the mother raccoon might abandon one or more of its babies and once the little raccoon is left to fend for itself, it may not be able get food and water and may starve to death. As a homeowner, you need to make every effort to get rid of the dead raccoon’s body. Also, it pays for you to identify the reason why raccoons are entering your home and after inspecting your home, you should either block their entry points or humanely try to evict them. If you succeed in preventing raccoons from entering your home or attic, you will have won the war against them and then you won’t need to worry about why they die in your home or attic.
