What Types of Dead Animals Do You Remove?

Our company specializes in the removal of all types of dead animals, from small critters (like rodents or birds) to larger animals (like opossums and raccoons). We handle each removal with professionalism and respect, ensuring prompt and efficient service.

We strive to provide a comprehensive service that meets the needs of our clients, all while maintaining high standards of hygiene and environmental responsibility throughout the process.

How Do You Handle the Disposal of the Dead Animal?

Upon removal, we ensure proper containment and transportation using biohazard bags or containers designed for such purposes. Our methods comply with local regulations and environmental standards, aiming to minimize any potential impact on surrounding biodiversity.

Throughout the process, hygiene and safety protocols are strictly followed to prevent any spread of disease or contamination.

Our main goal is to manage the disposal efficiently while respecting the dignity of the animal and maintaining cleanliness in the surrounding area.

Is the Dead Animal Removal Process Safe & Humane?

Yes, absolutely. Our technicians are highly trained and certified in wildlife management and removal, and we always follow industry best practices to handle every animal we remove – dead or alive.

What does this typically look like?

  • Protective Gear: We use appropriate protective gear and equipment to minimize any health risks associated with handling dead animals – ensuring the safety of both our technicians and your household.
  • Responsible Disposal: We adhere to all local, state, and federal regulations regarding the humane disposal of animal remains. This includes using environmentally responsible methods to dispose of the carcasses.
  • Sanitization Practices: After removal, we thoroughly clean and sanitize the affected area to eliminate any potential health hazards, such as bacteria or parasites, that the dead animal may have left behind.
  • Ethical Procedures: We ensure that our methods are not only effective, but also ethically sound. While this primarily applies to handling live animals, it extends to how we treat and dispose of animal remains – with respect.
  • Transparency & Communication: We keep you informed throughout the process, explaining each step we take and why it is necessary. We want it made clear that we maintain safety and humanity in our operations – and we’re happy to talk through all of that with you.

What if the Mom Is Dead, but There Are Babies That Are Alive?

If the mother animal is dead, but there are live babies still present, we’ll handle the situation with extra care and sensitivity. Our primary concern in such cases is the welfare of the surviving babies. We’ll take all appropriate precautions to ensure the babies are relocated safely to an environment they can thrive in.

This might include the following practices:

  • Identifying the species and determining the best course of action based on their specific needs and behaviors.
  • Carefully and humanely capturing the baby animals, ensuring they are handled gently to minimize stress and injury.
  • Using specialized equipment designed for safely capturing and transporting young wildlife.
  • Placing the babies in a warm, secure container and maintain a quiet/calm environment to keep them comfortable while we determine the next steps.

We work with licensed wildlife rehabilitators who have the expertise to care for orphaned baby animals. These professionals provide the necessary care and nourishment until the animals are old enough to be released back into the wild. We coordinate directly with these rehabilitators to ensure the babies receive the best possible care.

Our goal is to handle every wildlife situation with compassion and professionalism, ensuring the safety and well-being of both the animals and our clients. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Do You Offer Cleanup & Sanitation Services After Removing a Dead Animal?

Yes, we do! After the removal of the dead animal, our team will thoroughly clean and disinfect the affected area to remove any residual biological material. This helps to eliminate any potential health hazards associated with the carcass, such as bacteria or parasites.

We’ll also inspect the surrounding area for any signs of contamination that may have spread from the dead animal, such as fluids or droppings, and address these issues as part of our cleanup process.

Finally, if the presence of the dead animal has caused any damage to the property, such as stains or structural issues, we can assist with minor repairs as well.

What Precautions Should I Take While Waiting for Dead Animal Removal Services?

So, you’ve gotten over the initial shock of coming across a dead wild animal, and you’ve got our team members on the way. …what should you do in the meantime?

  • Avoid direct contact. Do not touch the dead animal with your bare hands. Dead animals can carry diseases and parasites that are harmful to humans (and pets).
  • Keep pets and children away. Ensure that pets and children are kept away from the area where the dead animal is located so avoid illness or infection.
  • Use protective gear. If you must handle the dead animal, wear protective gloves and, if possible, a face mask to avoid direct contact and inhalation of harmful pathogens.
  • Seal off the area. If the dead animal is indoors, seal off the area to prevent the spread of any potential contaminants.
  • Maintain ventilation. Ensure the area is well-ventilated to reduce the buildup of any odors or harmful gases.
  • Monitor for pests. Be vigilant for any signs of secondary infestations, such as flies or maggots, which can appear around dead animals. These pests can also pose health risks.
  • Wash hands thoroughly. After handling the situation or cleaning up, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

By taking these precautions, you can minimize the risk of infection and ensure a safer environment until our professionals can take over the situation.
