The removal of a dead animal is always a dirty situation. Sometimes it is an easy removal. Possibly an animal in your yard. But, most of the time, it is more complicated than that. It is usually because when an animal knows it is dying it will look for a cozy place. Most of the time it will be a place in or under a home that is difficult to reach. This presents many challenges and the need for special equipment. Sometimes, we find the dead animal is not alone. The last thing you want to encounter is an aggressive, live animal while trying to remove a dead one. Let the team at Thomas Wildlife Control do the hard work for you.

Dead animals can be a nuisance:

The number one problem with dead animals in or around your home is the smell. In just a short amount of time, it can become unbearable and unsafe. Within three days of an animal dying, the smell will peak. The strength of the odor depends on the size of the deceased animal, the species, location of the carcass in the house, state of decomposition, temperature, humidity, and airflow. It is dangerous to breathe in without the proper equipment. This is especially true in small spaces with no ventilation. Please do not put yourself in danger. Contact us as soon as an odor is noticed.

Dead animal diseases:

All of the things you do not want in your home and around your family. Our team will not only remove the animal for you, we will sanitize the area and deodorize the property to get rid of the odor.
