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.
Macon Dead Animal Tip: How to Cut Out a Dead Animal from Inside a Wall
It’s a homeowner’s worst nightmare: a dead animal trapped inside the wall. Bad enough to deal with a pest infestation. But a dead animal will lead to a terrible odor, attracting flies and other insects. Even worse, it may stain your walls and cause other long-term problems. Therefore, removing the dead animal as soon as possible is your utmost priority. However, saying so and doing so are two very different things.
In short: you will need to cut the animal out of the wall.
Follow the below steps as guidance when removing an animal from inside a wall cavity. If at any point you feel you cannot – or do not want to – continue, you can always contact a wildlife control service. They will be able to advise on your next steps or conduct the removal.
Step 1. Smell the wall
The clearest sign of a dead carcass inside the wall is the smell. At first, the scent will be very subtle. You may not even notice it is there. However, over two to three days following the animal’s death, the smell will grow and become considerable.
You may find it disgusting; however, it is the surest sign of finding the animal's location inside the wall. Smell along the entire length of the wall, where you suspect the body to be. Naturally, the smell will likely be most potent over the area where the animal is located.
It might sound like wishful thinking, smelling the animal through the wall. However, it is a reliable method of detecting the location of the carcass.
Step 2. Use a drywall saw
When cutting into the wall, using a drywall saw will allow a precise hole to be cut. Do so at the location where the smell was most pungent. Before you begin sawing, draw a rectangular box on the wall in the place you plan to cut. Cut a smaller box first and then expand if necessary. Remember: you can always cut more, but you can’t decrease the size of a hole you’ve already cut.
Step 3. Remove the carcass
Once you have cut the hole into the wall, identify and locate the carcass. Prepare appropriate containers, such as heavy-duty garbage or gardening bags. Then, using rubber gloves, remove the carcass from the wall and place it into the bags. You will also want to remove maggots from inside the wall and other animal- or insect-related detritus. Finally, give the area a thorough clean with an enzyme-based cleaner. Close the bag and place it in a suitable temporary storage location.
Step 4. Dispose of the carcass
For disposal, there are two primary options: burning or burial. Both are satisfactory ways to discard the carcass. However, burial reduces the health risks and interaction with the dead animal, whereas burning can leave more lasting signs. The choice is yours.
Step 5. Fill in the wall hole
Lastly, the hole in the wall needs to be fixed. That means replacing the drywall and insulation and then re-plastering. At this point, you’ll be grateful for only removing as much wall as was necessary. After all, the bigger the hole, the more plaster is required. There are patch kits that can be purchased to cover small holes – around a couple of inches. But for a larger hole, more extensive repairs will need to be conducted. If you do not have any prior DIY experience, we recommend hiring a professional. They’ll likely cut a drywall piece to fit the hole and cover it with plaster before repainting.
So, to recap, how to cut a dead animal from a wall. Use smell to detect the dead animal’s location, finding the spot where the smell is most pungent (1). With a drywall saw, cut the smallest possible hole into the wall at the location where the smell was strongest (2). Remove the carcass from the wall, placing it into a plastic bag. Then clean the area with an enzymatic cleaner (3). Finally, dispose of the body by either burning or burial (4) before filling in the hole using a kit or a professional’s help (5). As mentioned, if you feel the job is better handled by a professional, hire one.
