dead animal removal

When removing a dead animal from your property, you need to choose a company that will not worsen your worries. Once your nose caught the faint stench of decaying flesh, call our hotline immediately. Whether it is within the void of your walls or in the inaccessible part of your attic, our people will work hard to retrieve the carcass. There are various reasons why you should rely on us when dealing with a dead body, especially if you do not know the cause of its death. If you don't take care of it, the dead animal will soon emit a strong putrid odor. You may find it uncomfortable to stay at your house. The dead animal will also draw the attention of parasites such as fleas, beetles, and maggots. Dead bodies can also release fungal spores that can transmit a range of diseases. To stop the bacteria and mold, it is essential to remove the dead body at an opportune time. We will also sanitize and deodorize the place and eliminate all the parasites to prevent them from spreading. If you suspect that you have a dead animal on your property, be sure to give us a call. Once we are done with our work, it will look as if the problem has never existed.

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.

San Jose Dead Animal Tip:

What to do if I find a dead deer outside?

You wake up one morning and are surprised to find a dead deer lying on your lawn. You're likely to have lots of questions. What happened? How did it die? But sooner or later, you're going to face the obvious problem? How on earth do I move it?

If you leave the deer for too long, you're going to be stuck with a carcass that'll take weeks – or even months – to decay fully. The stench will be eye-watering, and you're likely to get a few complaints from neighbors.

There's only one problem; if you've even tried to lift or drag a deer, they are cumbersome. Likely over several hundred pounds. Even for a full-grown man, that's a lot of weight to shift, and you're liable to cause yourself an injury

So, what do you do? And what happened?

Why is the deer dead?

If your home is located near a busy road, then the answer is a simple one. The deer was most likely hit by a car and then limped off only to die on your lawn. Deer collisions are so common they cause an estimated $40 million of vehicle damage every year. 

However, contrary to preconceptions, collisions often don't damage a deer's outsides. Instead, the accident causes internal bleeding, allowing the deer to cover a significant amount of distance before death. When the time approaches, the deer will find a secluded location, such as a back garden, and ultimately dies. 

How to remove the deer

If you're fortunate to own the specialized equipment, you'll be able to move the deer yourself. However, even then, you'll have significant trouble loading the carcass onto a truck or trailer. You may also have the added problem that someone removes the head from the body. Antlers are a prized trophy in many communities, meaning someone may help themselves to the body. 

Therefore, the most common method of removal is to contact a professional deer removal company. They will have the necessary equipment and experience required to remove and dispose of a deer carcass. Alternatively, local authorities may offer to help. If the deer was killed on public property, the deer should always be left for the authorities to handle. However, they may appreciate a call letting them know.

Deer disposal isn't the cheapest procedure. That's because there are many hidden costs. First, there is the running and maintenance of the equipment involved, alongside the gas cost for running the machinery. Then, there is the time taken to remove the deer and handle it after. 

In certain situations, the deer may be in a difficult-to-reach location, thereby complicating removal. In such cases, it may take over an hour or more to complete the removal, and if the deer killed is a fully grown stag, then shifting the weight is even more difficult. All these circumstances radically change the nature of the job.

Even once removed, the deer must be disposed of. Usually, removal companies will put the deer in a landfill. However, landfill sites will charge the company for doing so, which the removal company will then pass onto the customer. 

Then, on top of all those expenses, the removal company still has to turn a profit. Unsurprisingly, deer removal can cost several hundred dollars at least. However, if you ask around, you may be able to find a company that'll do it cheaper.

To recap

If you find a deer dead on your property, the most likely cause was a car collision. Deer often don't die on site, instead, suffering internal bleeding, which causes later death. 

Once they've died, you'll struggle to move the carcass due to the tremendous weight. Don't try to handle the deer yourself, as you are at risk of contracting a disease from the ticks living on them.

Therefore, you will need to contact a deer removal company. Depending on the situation, several factors can complicate deer removal, impacting the price. These include the deer's size, the location of the carcass, and time spent during removal. Alongside other factors such as the cost of landfill disposal, you can expect to pay several hundred dollars for removal.
