Dead Animal Challenges & Causation

When seeking a swift solution to tackle a rodent issue, many customers opt for rodent poison, often unaware of the potential harm it can cause. However, it’s important to note that the problem doesn’t lie in using poison itself, but rather in its bad placement or improper usage. At our company, we employ proper rodent baiting techniques for effective rodent control, ensuring that we never have to deal with dead animals inside the property.

Regrettably, we’ve encountered numerous instances where “Pest Control Operators” inadvertently exacerbated the problem by placing poison incorrectly, leading to a distressing scenario where we had to extract multiple deceased rodents from various buildings.

Frequently, our phone lights up with calls related to dead animal removal or odor control, typically stemming from squirrels finding themselves inadvertently trapped within the confines of a wall void, unable to escape, resulting in their unfortunate demise. Furthermore, animals may naturally complete their life cycles and seek out your attic or crawlspace as a peaceful final resting spot.

In addition, we’re no strangers to calls regarding dead rats. These rodents often meet their demise within wall voids, beneath insulation, or within ductwork, whether due to poison or simply as part of their natural lifespan. A huge pet-peeve of ours is when someone sets rodent glueboards and never checks them, just leaving the animal to suffer and die. Regardless of the cause, our proficient Dead Animal Recovery team is equipped to locate, extract, deodorize, and disinfect, allowing you to return to your daily routine swiftly. Among the most prevalent requests for dead animal removal in Ellijay, rodents and deer rank at the top.

Most dead animal removal calls within the structure or wall are remediated in under an hour, with our team’s efficiency and expertise. Dead animal removal goes by various names such as dead animal extraction, carcass removal, dead animal body removal, and dead animal pick up, depending on the circumstances. Each task presents its unique challenges, yet we’re committed to identifying the culprit responsible for the unpleasant odor. Extracting deceased animals from wall voids can be daunting, but our specialized tools and training enable us to reach even the most inaccessible spots.

In the case of dead deer, they often meet their fate following vehicle collisions or entanglements with fences, leaving homeowners to grapple with the potent odor until they discover the decomposing carcass nearby. Our aim is to respond promptly and conduct dead animal pickups on the very same day as your initial call, if too late in the workday then it will be the next morning.
