I commonly extract dead animal carcasses from homes and property. The very animals that commonly invade houses die inside houses, and when they do, they create a very unpleasant odor as the carcass decays. The successful removal of deceased wildlife definitely requires experience and knowledge of building architecture and animal behavior. I've cut and pried open every nook and cranny imaginable to locate and remove rotting critter bodies. I am the best - I always find the animal, deodorize and decontaminate the area, and seal up the hole I've cut open. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Dead Animals page.

Dead Rat in the Wall - This is probably the millionth time I removed a dead rat from someone’s wall (Okay that was a bit exaggerated!). Removing dead rodents from the walls is more like a routine job for me now and is something that makes me yawn even when I think about it (like right now. Yawn!). Anyways, I got a call from this homeowner complaining of bad odor around the place and since they suspected there was a dead animal somewhere inside, they thought of calling me (smart move). Right from the moment I received the call, I knew it would be the same run of the mill kind of work that I usually do. And I was not wrong.

Back to my usual sniffing self, I went around the house and started to rule out the areas where the stench seemed to be relatively light. When I sniffed around the walls, I knew immediately that whatever dead animal there is has to be somewhere hidden behind the walls. I kept sniffing until I was completely sure which wall the smell was coming from and once I did, I got to work right away by drilling a hole in the lower corner of the wall.

It was one of those moments where I wanted to pat myself on the back because I could not have been more accurate about the location of the dead rat. There it lay on its back, dead and its long tail hanging out. Seriously when I looked back at this picture just now, for a moment I thought it was some wire that fell out of the wall. Anyways, I took the rat out of the hole and put it in a garbage disposal bag, wrapping it around tightly. After disinfecting and deodorizing the site, I closed the hole and made sure that the wall is restored to the way it was.
