When animals die inside or under your home or business, they stink. That's one of the reasons why at Rid-A-Critter, we do all our interior animal-removal work non-chemically. When animals are poisoned, there's no way to control where they die. Usually, they die where they live; and if they were living in your home, then chances are that that's where they will die. By using traps instead of poisons, we avoid that problem.
Very often, however, we get calls from people whose primary reason for calling is that an animal died in their home, and they need it removed and something done about the odor. Sometimes the animal died because the customer tried DIY pest control using poisons, and the animal died in an inaccessible void. In other cases, the animal died from some reason having nothing to do with poisons such as illness, accident, injuries sustained in a fight, or simple old age.
Most customers aren't interested in the reason for the animal's death, however. They just want both the animal and the smell gone.
In addition to the odor, dead animals in your home present a number of potential health hazards. For example:
In short, your home can't be considered a healthy place if you have an animal's carcass rotting away somewhere. It needs to be removed and disposed of.
