Removing dead animals from your property
When animals end up dying in attics or within the walls of a home, or even in yards, the issues can arise. If you are not a trained wildlife removal expert, then you may not know how to handle such issues. Some of the most commonly found animals that live near homes include skunks, squirrels, opossums, stray cats, dogs, rats and mice.
Homeowners may risk stains and odors if they just leave the dead animal bodies to be. They also risk contamination and disease. Future pest infestation may occur too, which is why it’s important to have the animal/animals removed as soon as possible.
Walls, dark crawl spaces, and ceilings may make it difficult to actually see the corpse of an animal, but there are signs that can arise as time goes on. These signs include gasses that fill the area, and these gasses will smell bad. Not only that, but fluids may drain out of the area and cause foul stains that spread as the corpse continues to rot. These signs can attract insects and other animal pests to inhabit the area because they will want to feed on the carcass, and this can create even more problems.
Locations Where Dead Animals Are Found
Many animals such as mice, rats, squirrels, and raccoons inhabit areas close to human activity. Sometimes they will make home within a yard or make their way into a house. Wherever these animals are, that is where their corpses will be found when they die.
Some of the areas they are commonly found in includes beneath floorboards, underneath porches, in crawl spaces, in pools or in yards to name a few. Many animals are considered to be pests by humans and these animals include rats and mice, which is why many people lay down traps and baits. However, toxic baits will increase the chances of animals decaying in places that are difficult to reach. Also, if traps are not checked regularly, then animals could end up being caught only to be left to decompose.
Issues And Disease
Vultures, flies, and worms are a few of the types of animals and insects that have been known to feed on animal corpses. Fly larvae can grow among carcasses and worms and beetles tend to eat the leftovers. Not only that, but some of these pests can cause even more problems.
Humans who are near dead animals may be at risk of contracting a disease. When you leave a corpse to continue to rot, then your soil or water sources may become contaminated with diseases that can cause great harm, and these diseases include bayliscaris and cryptosporidium. Your pets may also contract diseases or parasites just as easily.
You can take action to prevent creatures from getting into areas. You can seal up crack and holes in places such as your exterior walls, and secure your chimneys, vents, and doorways. If animals meet their deaths outside of your home, then it won’t be as inconvenient for you and other members of your household as it would be if it died inside your home.
