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 Diego Dead Animal Tip:

Odor from animal feces in attic

Critters like rats, squirrels, opossums, and bats infest attics. These critters settle in attics and make a mess from their regular activities, including the production of feces. This article focuses on how infesting critters make a mess of attics with their feces and what you should do about it. 

The activity of critters in attics

Attics are usually unoccupied, giving critters a lot of room for their activity. The critters that infest attics do so because of the safety, comfort, and easy access to food it provides. Opossums and squirrels, critters with excellent climbing skills, can crawl into attics after using any available materials as bridges. 

Flying critters like bats will enter attics through small entry points. Large colonies of bats can infest an attic and cause significant destruction. 

The odor of animal feces

Since the critters that infest attics are basically at home in your home, it is natural for them to begin to produce feces in no time. The number of feces produced will depend on the type of critter. Whether the critters are solitary or live in groups will also determine the number of feces they will produce. 

Bats infest attics in large numbers. A colony of bats could infest attics and produce large quantities of feces. The feces of bats are called guano. 

If a smell is coming from your attic, and you cannot exactly place it, it may just be the droppings of the critters infesting your attic. The odor comes from the compounds that make up the droppings. The odor of animals coming from attics could make a property uninhabitable. This is usually the case when a colony of critters like bats infests a property. 

Because the odor of pest feces could particularly be unpleasant, it could be one of the first indications of a pest infestation. The smell could be from the mixture of feces with urine. 

If the odor from the attic is combined with scratching and scurrying noises, it is most likely from infesting critters. If you have bats in your attic, you will also see them as they leave for the night. 

Problems associated with animal feces in attics

The odor is just one of the problems associated with animal feces in attics. The critters can also spread diseases through their feces. The diseases could be contracted through direct contact. The infectious agents from the feces could also be inhaled.

Guano can also cause structural damage to properties. Structural damage is bound to accompany the deposition of large quantities of guano in attics. When bats infest an attic in large numbers, extensive repairs are usually required because of the associated damage, especially those associated with guano.

Removal of animal feces in attics

Since the odor of animal feces usually points to the presence of critters in the attic. The removal of the critters should be the first step. After the critters are removed, repair and cleanup should follow. 

Professional cleanup and repair services are available for attics, especially when they have large quantities of feces. Attics could also be cleaned without professional help.

If you will be cleaning your attic without professional help, you should begin with wearing protective clothing that will completely protect you from hazardous materials. The protective materials you will need include gloves, a hazmat suit, and masks. 

You will also need cleaning materials like a high-powered vacuum cleaner and cleaning products. You could also get an atomizer. The atomizer will remove particles that the vacuum cleaner may miss. 

When cleaning attics, you could pick up the bigger pieces of feces with your gloved hand before vacuuming the rest. 

Replacing the insulation is an important repair process that should accompany the cleanup of feces from attics. Soiled insulation will be difficult to disinfect and manage and should be discarded. The elimination of all entry points and reinforcement of vulnerabilities should also accompany the cleanup of feces from attics. 

The odor from animal feces in attics is notably unpleasant. This is especially true if the feces are mixed with urine. The odor serves as a sign of an active infestation. The infestation should be managed through the removal of the critters and means of prevention and habitat exclusion put in place. 

Attics with animal feces should be thoroughly cleaned. The insulation of the attic should also be replaced to completely remove hazardous materials.
