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.
Dallas Dead Animal Tip: Does a Dead Animal Carcass Cause Flies?
If you’ve found a dead animal in your home, you might be concerned about it attracting flies. After all, trash attracts flies; food attracts flies; surely a dead animal attracts flies too.
You’d be right.
Flies are scavengers that lay their eggs in animal flesh and animal waste. You’ll often find them buzzing around outside, but they’ll be at their highest concentration near a carcass. If you live near garbage bins, landfill sites, animal farms, or other similar locations, flies will be familiar. Nevertheless, they are likely hunting for a place to lay their eggs. Dead animal carcasses are a prime location. Once they’ve hatched from their eggs, maggots feed on the carcass for several weeks before they develop into full-grown flies. These flies then head off in search of a mate, and the cycle begins again
Types of flies
To the average person, a fly is a fly. What’s the difference? They all look pretty much alike. But if you’re forced to get a closer view, you’ll notice a wide variety of diversity. Some are blue or green, some have big bodies, while others are small. These changes are indicators of the species.
By knowing what to look for, flies can be a useful indicator for a dead animal somewhere on your property. You don’t want an animal rotting without your knowledge. So, read on.
House flies (Musca domestica) are the most common buzzing insect you’re likely to come across. They have broad bodies with sizable red compound eyes. Despite being common, they’re not often associated with dead meat. Instead, they prefer moist garbage or rotting plant matter.
Blowflies (Calliphoridae) are an indicator of dead animals. You’ll first notice their shiny metallic color, coming in copper, green, blue, or black. These flies are known to lay their eggs in dead animals and decaying meat or garbage.
Flesh flies (Sarcophagidae), as their name suggests, like flesh. Look for a gray body with black stripes running behind the head. Their lifecycle is similar to blowflies: eggs are laid in dead meat, then maggots feed on carcasses before turning into flies. You’ll most often see them lingering around garbage dumpsters or carcasses. They are the surest sign of a nearby dead animal.
Such species of fly will arrive within an hour or so following death. Therefore, if there are a substantial number of flies, you can be sure the animal died some time again. There’s a reason why forensics uses flies to identify how long a person has been dead.
How to prevent flies
The most obvious solution is to find and locate the dead animal carcass. Once located, place in several heavy-duty plastic bags and dispose of them according to your local area regulations. If you can, burial and burning are incredibly effective.
Next, scrub the affected area removing all remaining aspects of animal matter. Even a small amount of flesh might attract flies to the site due to the smell. Therefore, using enzyme cleaners and a strong disinfectant is essential.
If you are unable to remove the body from the area, then try to seal it up. Before doing so, inject disinfectants and deodorizers and consider treating it with an anti-fly/anti-pest compound as a precautionary measure. Once you’ve done so, regularly check up on the area and listen to ensure there are no flies inside. If you do find flies, ensure they are unable to leave after hatching.
Finding flies is often disgusting: we rightfully associated them with disease and death. However, they can be a vital clue to discovering a dead animal carcass hidden on your property. Flies, such as blowflies and flesh flies, lay their eggs in rotting flesh and hatched maggots then feed upon it. You can prevent fly infestations by finding and destroying the carcass. Then, ensure the area is scrubbed clean to remove any remnants of animal flesh. Otherwise, use anti-fly sprays and compounds to deter flies from nesting on a carcass and seal up the area affected. Flies will only persist as long as there is rotting flesh present.
