Handling a Dead Animal On Your Property

Handling a Dead Animal On Your Property

Coming across a dead animal in your home or on your property is not a pleasant experience. Once you’ve gotten over the initial shock and emotions that come along with locating a carcass, you will then need to remove the deceased wildlife. Due to the smell, flies and health risks that come with an animal carcass, it’s imperative that the body be removed as soon as possible. Pest Kings Wildlife Removal & Pest Control does not recommend DIY deceased animal removal.

Risks of DIY Dead Animal Removal

Spread of Disease

deceased wildlife spread diseasesCarcasses of dead animals are capable of spreading a variety of diseases, many of which are transferable to your loved ones and pets. DIY dead animal removals include putting on some gloves, picking up the body and placing it in the trash bin. This method leaves you vulnerable to airborne diseases carried by the carcass. Depending on the length of time on your property, the carcass may have attracted rodents, flies, maggots or pests. Not only are you at risk of contracting diseases from the animal, but also all the life that’s been feeding on it.

Improper Carcass Disposal

Many people forget about their friendly, neighborhood garbage men and women. Placing a deceased animal in your families garbage bin, organic waste bin or recycling is illegal in many municipalities because of this hazard. Cities do not provide dead animal removal services if carcass is located on private property. This leaves property owners solely responsible for proper removal and disposal. Pest Kings Wildlife Removal & Pest Control’s technicians are experienced in dead animal removal and disposal. If you’ve located a dead animal on public property, such as a park or sidewalk, contact your city for removal options.

Parasites, Ticks & Flea Infestations

Once these animals die the parasites will now begin looking for a new live host. These pests will latch onto the first warm body that comes into contact with the carcass and this warm body could be yours. Fleas, ticks and other parasites spread a wide range of diseases including Lyme disease.
