The thought of an animal dying in or around your home or business is unpleasant. However, any wildlife that can enter your premises can also sadly die there. To alleviate the stress and discomfort of dealing with carcasses, Creature Control can promptly and professionally dispose of them, no matter their location.

When an animal unexpectedly dies outside of your home or business, the process of removing the corpse can be extensive. It is not uncommon for deer and large mammals such as raccoons, opossums, and skunks to occasionally wander onto private property and die. Animals attempting to recoup from their fate may roam onto your yard from a failed hunting excursion, illness, or perhaps it was struck by a car. Most animals prefer to spend their last moments in a private, enclosed location like under a deck or a porch.
Creature Control routinely receives a call, “We think something is dead.” People can smell the odor, but they can’t always locate the source. That’s where our technicians come in. They locate the corpse, extract it, and dispose of it according to county and state law.
Of all pests, dead squirrels and mice are the most commonly found carcasses in Colorado homes and businesses. They generally fall into wall voids and are unable to get out. Bird corpses are also regularly found indoors as they get trapped in exhaust events. Abandoned animal litters where the mother has gone out to retrieve food and was killed is another typical occurrence. The juveniles either remain at large, crawling throughout your home, or they too parish.
Sometimes rotting animal flesh can be quite rancid and overwhelming. This putrid stench is not necessarily associated with the size of the corpse or the number but rather the location. The smell can linger in one room or area, or it can permeate through the entire house. If the carcass is near a heating or cooling air duct, the vent sucks in the surrounding air and disperses the stench throughout the home.
Other issues with deceased animals are the presence of large bottle flies or “hide beetles” (little black or brown beetles that feed on decaying carcasses) that sometimes accompany the decaying corpse. Carcass sweating (common in mice and rats that have died in a drop ceiling) can cause a small wet spot to appear on the underside of a ceiling. Attic or wall voids are typically where animal bodies are found, and removal can be tricky. Some cases require wall cutting, fiberoptic cameras, and special lighting to identify the remains.
