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.

Ocala Dead Animal Tip: How to Get a Dead Animal Out of Your Car

You open up your car door, and it hits you like a massive tornado - the unmistakable stench of death. The source is most likely a small creature that had found its way into your engine for warmth before meeting its demise. Asides from the appalling odor, a dead animal in your car exposes you to several health risks, including rat-bite fever, leptospirosis, hantavirus, and others. Hence, you need to find the carcass and get rid of the odor promptly. In this post, we explore how you can accomplish that.

Supplies Required
Before you begin the process, get the following items ready:
Thick rubber gloves
Disposable bags
Cleaning fluids - strong disinfectant, antibacterial cleaner, and bleach
Odor removal products

Step 1: Finding the Dead Critter
What you’re looking for is most likely a small animal. So, it could be a rat, mouse, squirrel, chipmunk, or even opossum. And just so you have your expectations straightened out, finding the carcass, most likely, won’t be easy. This is primarily because of how the components of a car are tightly coupled together, leaving several crevices and spaces that are hard to reach.

But your best bet is to follow the smell. Use your nose to smell different sections of your car. Once you’ve identified the section with the strongest concentration of foul smell, you can be almost certain that the carcass is near that region.

If the suspected region is dark - like in the engine compartment - use the flashlight to search carefully. If it’s inside the passenger compartment, you may remove the seats and check for signs of remains. You should also lift the carpet and search every nook and cranny. With enough patience, you’ll eventually find the carcass.

Step 2: Removing and Disposing of the Dead Animal
Once you’ve found the animal, it’s time to remove it. But before that, put on your hand gloves. This will help prevent direct contact with the bodily fluids of the animal. This is important because dead animals carry several diseases that may put you at serious health risks. Once you pick up the carcass with your gloves, soak the carcass in a disinfectant solution of 1-part bleach to 10 parts water for about five minutes. Thereafter, double-pack the carcass with disposable bags.

You can then dispose of the carcass with your normal trash. The waste collection service in most cities accepts the carcasses of small animals. But to be certain, you should first confirm with them.

If you’re unable to find or remove the carcass, maybe because it requires you to remove parts of the engine, you may have to involve your local service station. They will be able to help you remove the animal.

Step 3: Getting Rid of the Odor
Removing the carcass is just half of the solution. You also need to deal with the terrible odor. However, this is the tricky part, especially if the infected area isn’t easily accessible.

First off, you need to get rid of the remnants left by the animal. This may include nesting materials, droppings, chewed carpets and wires, and more. Put these remnants in a disposable bag. Also, pick up maggots, dead roaches, and other insects and put them in the bag before sealing it. Make sure you wear your gloves to avoid direct contact with the remnants.

Thereafter, scrub down all the surfaces that the dead creature had contact with using a disinfectant. Alternatively, you can use a bleach solution. Ensure that your car is properly ventilated during this process.

However, if the animal died in your car’s air filter or burrow-like ventilation system, there’s a pretty strong chance the odorous bacteria has been circulated throughout the entire passenger compartment. You might have to bring in professionals that specialize in deodorizing vehicles.

Step 4: Making the Necessary Repairs
If you have a dead animal in your car, there’s a strong chance it would have wreaked some damages. Maybe it would have chewed through some wires that might have affected your engine’s performance. Making necessary repairs can sometimes be expensive, depending on the amount of damage that was done.
