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.

Riverside Dead Animal Tip: Why Do Squirrels Die Inside Houses or Attics? How to Remove.

Squirrels are cute medium-sized rodents with fluffy tails. However, there’s nothing cute about a dead squirrel - the same is true of all dead wildlife. For one, the putrid smell from the carcass will cause discomfort for you and your family. Furthermore, a dead squirrel is a breeding ground for several potentially harmful diseases. Squirrels are solitary creatures that mainly live in the wild. But from time to time, they might reside in the attic because of the extra safety and warmth it provides. Unfortunately, a squirrel might meet its demise in your house. In this article, we look at some of the reasons why squirrels die in houses.

Why Squirrels Die in Houses and Attics
Here are some of the most common reasons:

Getting Trapped
As noted earlier, squirrels primarily reside in the wild. However, they’ll get into your house to feed on grain and other foodstuffs. Sometimes, they are unable to get out, especially if the doors are shut. Although squirrels are great climbers of trees, their feet are not well-adapted to climb a smooth wall. A squirrel can also be trapped if the entry hole into the attic is sealed up while it is still inside. A trapped squirrel that is unable to find its way out will eventually die of starvation, stress, and exhaustion.

There are several predators of squirrels in the wild. Some of which include red foxes, wild cats, badgers, and weasels. But in your house, your domestic dog and cat can kill squirrels.

Many people make use of poison for rodent control. Poisoning causes paralysis and death after consumption. Therefore, squirrels can die after eating poisoned bait. If you make use of rodenticide, then the dead squirrel in your house might have fed on it. However, it is important to note that the use of poison is frowned upon as it is inhumane.

Territorial Fights
Squirrels are moderately territorial and will fight any intruders to defend their nests. Such fights may result in serious injuries that may lead to death.

Squirrels primarily reside in attics because of the warmth and safety it provides for them to raise their young. If the mother is separated from her young in your attic, then the babies will eventually die due to lack of parental care.

How to Remove Dead Squirrels

Follow the Scent
The foul scent in your house is the biggest clue to finding the squirrel’s carcass. You need to walk from room to room to pin down where the scent is most concentrated - this is the likely position of the carcass. If the squirrel is inside the wall, then the area of the wall with the foulest smell is where the carcass is. If the squirrel has been dead for a while, you might hear faint buzzing of flies or see strange stains on the ceiling or wall. All these give away the location of the carcass.

Remove the Carcass
Ensure that you put on your gloves before coming in contact with the carcass. Pick up the carcass and place it in a plastic bag. Pick up all remnant materials, including droppings, nesting materials, maggots, and so on, and put it in the bag also. Double the bag and seal it up so all germs and bacteria are properly contained.

Make use of an enzymatic cleaner or a solution of bleach and water to clean the infected area. Make sure you remove the stains and fluids.

In most areas, you are allowed to throw a dead squirrel away with your regular trash collector. However, make sure you consult your local regulations first so you do not dispose of the carcass illegally.

The squirrel that died in your house or attic must have gotten there somehow. You must identify and seal all entry holes so new squirrels will not come in. Also, make sure that you repair the wires, wood, and insulation that the squirrel might have destroyed or contaminated.

Wrap Up
Finding and removing a dead squirrel from your house or attic is not as easy as it sounds. If you’re unwilling to go through the stress, you should get a wildlife professional involved to help you with the process.
