We do not advise the use of poisons and toxic fumes due to the dangers related to them. Nonetheless, most people who will experience an infestation will still use this method. These animals will usually die in places that are out of our reach. They can be found in our ceiling, void of our walls, or in narrow spaces on our property. Other companies will leave the animal when it is beyond their reach; they will just mask the odor using deodorizers. With us, you can guarantee that we will be able to retrieve the dead body. We have a camera probe that will help us inspect even the tiny spaces inside your property. We have catch poles, tongs, and snares that can fit on small areas to make it easier for us to retrieve the dead body. We will choose the least invasive method when performing our service. Our people are proficient in using sanitizing and disinfecting products that eliminate bacteria-causing diseases. We also follow the local policies and regulations; we promise to remain compliant with the existing standard. We carry liability insurance that will keep you safe from any unforeseen expense. We will provide you with an efficient, secure, and honest service.

We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:
- Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
- When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
- Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
- Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
- Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
- Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house
Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.
Lansing Dead Animal Tip: How Much Does Dead Animal Removal Cost?
You’ve probably heard a thousand times not to handle dead animal removal yourself. Why? Because dead animals are breeding grounds for several diseases and you put yourself at a serious health risk when you come in direct contact with their bodily fluids. That’s why involving a wildlife removal specialist is usually the best course of action. They have the technical expertise and tools to handle the problem effectively and safely. However, their services aren’t free! Before employing any service, it’s prudent to know the potential financial costs. That’s why we’ll explore the cost of dead animal removal in this post.
Average Price of Dead Animal Removal
If you have a dead animal in your house, on average, expect to spend between $150 and $250. This payment will cover the removal of the dead animal, as well as the decontamination of the polluted space. However, note that the cost of dead animal removal varies widely depending on your specific scenario.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Dead Animal Removal
Let’s briefly explore some factors that will affect the price of dead animal removal from your property.
Cost of Running the Business
Reputable wildlife control companies do spend money on licensing and liability insurance, among many other things. So, if you start to feel like the amount you’re being charged seems to be too much, know that the cost of doing business is reflected in the final price tag.
Location of the Dead Animal
Removing a dead raccoon from your yard isn’t the same as removing a dead raccoon from inside a wall. In the first case, all the technician needs to do is pack up the carcass from your yard and dispose of it, probably by incineration. In the second case, the technician will get into the attic to try to pull up the carcass. If he’s unable to reach it, he might have to cut a hole in the wall to pull it out before closing the hole back up. As you can see, that’s a whole lot of work, and you’ll have to pay way more.
Type of Dead Animal
Removing a dead skunk from your yard will cost less than removing a dead deer. Why? Because disposing of larger carcasses requires more effort. For instance, incineration of carcasses is usually billed per pound. So the wildlife company will spend more incinerating a deer compared to a skunk. That will also be reflected in the final cost.
The Intensity of the Problem
Do you have a couple of dead rats in your attic? Or do you have several dead rats scattered across your house (maybe after using rat poison)? In the second case, it requires much more effort to locate all the dead carcasses and that means you’ll have to pay more.
If the dead raccoon in your attic has been residing there for long, there’s a strong chance it would have torn up the insulation, chewed on wood, wires, and pipes, and even pollute your attic with its feces and urine. This means serious repair work has to be carried out even after the carcass has been removed. You might have to replace a section of your insulation or change some wires and pipes. This also adds to the total cost.
Possibility of Wildlife Infestation Problem
If you have a dead animal in your house, then you know for certain a wild animal was residing there. There’s also a strong possibility that you have other animals there. For instance, if you find a dead rat in your house, then there are most likely other rats, and you need to take care of them before you have more dead rats. This means asides from getting rid of the carcass, you also need a wildlife removal service to take care of the live animals remaining. This can add to the original dead removal service. Here are some examples to give you a bit of perspective. Removing squirrels from your attic will cost anywhere from $200 to $600. Rodent elimination will cost between $150 to $450. Raccoon removal will cost between $350 and $600. Note that this cost covers both live removal, repairs, and decontamination.
Dead animal removal costs can range from about $150 to $250. However, based on your unique circumstances, you may have to spend several hundreds of dollars to fully rectify your wildlife problems.
