Dead Animal Removal Process


While pests are annoying enough when they’re alive, they can cause plenty of havoc once dead as well. Their dead bodies will start stinking up your home and will attract a load of other pests as well. That’s not even mentioning all the diseases they could cause. For these reasons, it’s essential to always remove a dead animal as soon as possible, as it prevents plenty of headaches down the road.

Finding the Dead Animal

The first step to getting rid of the dead animal is to find it. This is much trickier than you might initially expect. Not only do pests like sticking to the walls and staying in hiding when alive, but most animals will naturally decide to go into an even smaller and more secluded area once they know their time has come to an end. That’s why we’ll be looking at some different methods you can use to find the dead animal.

1. Searching the Common Spots

As mentioned earlier, animals will go into a secluded area when they realize they’re about to die. Whether for good or bad, there are only a small number of spots in your home that fit the bill. That’s why it’s always a good idea to give those a look when trying to spot a dead animal. These spots include inside your walls, your crawl space, the attic, the basement, and even your chimney. They’re all nice, quiet, and dark. Unfortunately, that also means they can be tough to search through.

2. Using Your Sense of Smell

It goes without saying that any dead organism will slowly start to smell. Once an animal is gone there’s nothing keeping their body’s organs from doing their jobs. That coupled with the fact that there’s nothing maintaining the state of the body anymore results in the corpse slowly rotting, which gives off an awful smell. That’s why you can use your nose to follow the scent until you arrive upon the body. Just be warned that it takes some time for the body to start rotting, meaning you won’t be able to find the corpse for quite a while.

3. Look Out for Stains

Once a living thing dies, it’ll naturally let go of itself. That means all the water and food inside the body will be released as feces and urine soon after death. While this is disgusting, it can also be used to help locate the body. Depending on where the animal died, it’s waste will stain the surfaces around it. Your walls or floorboards will also absorb some of it and will turn to an orange or brownish color. That’s why you can find out where an animal died if a new stain appears in your home.

4. Follow the Bugs

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that insects, particularly flies, are attracted to dead bodies because they’re massive mounds of food for these small critters. You can use these animal’s natural survival instincts to your advantage to find the dead animal. All you have to do is see where there’s a large gathering of insects, and search that area closely.

Dead Animal Disposal

Once you’ve found the body, you can relax since the hardest part of the job is done. Unfortunately, you must now remove the body, which is the most disgusting part. How filthy it is depends on how long it takes you to find the body.

If you find the dead animal within a handful of hours of it dying, then you’ve gotten lucky and can dispose of it with ease. If it takes you half a day, you can expect it to be much filthier and contaminated with the animal’s waste. If it takes you a few days, however, you’ll now have to deal with both the dead animal and the insects infesting the area. Any longer than that, and you’ll have to deal with a decomposing corpse.

No matter what you do, however, make sure you’re wearing gloves when handling the body. Then gently pick it up and wrap it in one or two layers of plastic bags, before properly disposing of the body.


Once the dead animal is gone, you’re going to have to clean the area to keep your home sanitary and keep yourself safe from diseases. First make sure any insects in the area are dead. Then use disinfectant or a mixture of bleach and water to soak the area for upwards of five minutes before using a rag or mop to wipe the area clean. With that, the dead animal will have successfully been removed.

Professional Help

Of course, getting all that done is both disgusting and a headache, so it’s best to just call a professional to help remove the dead animal for you. Not only will you be spared the trouble, but these experts will even be prepared to remove the body from hard to reach places, like the insides of walls. That’s why calling a professional is always a great idea.
