Dead Possum Removal

Possums die. It’s a fact of life. But sometimes possums die in the most inconvenient of places. Dead possum & rodent odours are unpleasant and can linger for weeks before the carcass dries out enough for the smell to decrease.

But even after the initial smell of the dead animal has diminished, the carcass still remains. If left in place within walls, ceilings, or subflooring, the dead animal carcasses can be a health hazard.

Acting quickly to remove the dead animal reduces the amount of time that the smell will linger, it also reduced the risk of damage to your property that can occur when the bacteria involved in the decomposition process penetrate porous or absorbent surfaces.

If you are dealing with a bad smell and you can’t figure out what it might be. Chances are that you might have a dead possum in your roof. Dead possums in roofs can leave a smell affecting your entire home.

You should get this removed as soon as possible as the dead animal smell will only get worse and can become a safety hazard.

Dead Animal Control

All dead animals should be removed from your home. Dealing with a rat infestation can lead to dead rats that you should get rid of. But also, larger animals such as possums should be removed from your property and home.

When an animal dies a closer look should be given to different control methods, it is important to look at affected area points. These should be dealt with to prevent animals from re-entering the affected areas. It is important to find the source. Looking at wall cavities and roof cavities to see where the animals might have entered is an important prevention method.

Dead Animal & Carcass Removal Melbourne

If you need a dead animal removed from your property or home, we can help you get rid of them as soon as possible. All Pests offers same day pest control and dead animal removal services across most Melbourne suburbs.

Quick and discreet carcass removal services

The removal of dead animals from your property, whether they’re little or large, is a job that is not only unhygienic to do yourself, but also potentially upsetting, especially if it’s a pet.

Rather than dealing with the various logistics of the removal, it is more sensible to utilise the services of an experienced dead animal removal company to quickly and discreetly do the job for you.

Safe and hygienic removal of animal remains from experienced professionals

One of the residential services All Pests specialises in is dead animal removal, from mammals to birds, throughout Melbourne – we cover both urban and rural areas within regions including the North-West, South-East and Melbourne, offering a wide range of potential jobs to take on. Our policy is to always get to your property (at your convenience) as quickly as possible to minimise distress and inconvenience on your part.

Safe dead animal removal

Mother nature knows her job and at some point, you might find one of her doings around your property - an animal that has passed away. Needless to say - the carcass needs to be removed as soon as you have spotted it.

When an animal dies, if not found soon enough, its decomposing body becomes a health hazard. It rapidly starts filling your property with foul odours and can cause an unsuspected flea infestation, as well.

So, if you spot a dead animal near your house or inside, don’t waste time and get professional help.

On that note, we also offer the removal of your deceased pet friend in the most emphatic and considerate manner if you can’t bring yourself to deal with the loss and its cremation at the same time.

  • Don’t try to move the creature to avoid spreading of potential parasites lurking in its fur.

  • Try to isolate the area, especially if you have pets. You need to eliminate all health-hazardous risks.

  • Consider ordering our disinfection service to sanitise the area and remove all possible harmful bacteria from your property.

I have used All Pests services for the last 2 years. Ryan was very professional and approachable, answering any questions I had. We will be having them back again next year. Great service. Due to the recent rains I had to reschedule many times, each time they were very understanding and offered great friendly service.

Dead Animal & Carcass Removal FAQ

What's the best way to get rid of a dead animal?

  1. How to Dispose of a Dead Animal
  2. Do not touch the animal.
  3. Use a long-handled shovel to pick up the dead animal and place it into a plastic bag.
  4. Put on gloves before handling the plastic bag.
  5. Tie a knot in the top of the bag.

What do you do with dead animals?

Three common effective methods of carcass disposal are: incineration, burying, and rendering. Incineration is the preferred method to use when the carcass is diseased; however, it can also be the most expensive. An acceptable alternative is to bury the carcass.

Is pest control worth the money?

Smell does not usually contain bacteria, which carry disease and are much larger than the gaseous molecules that make up a smell. So the odor itself cannot make you sick.

What to do when a dead animal is in the walls?

It is usually difficult to remove them when they are inside a wall. A room deodorizer might help. The only way to get rid of the carcass would have to be by cutting into the wall. This may be difficult, as the odor may permeate through the walls and it is hard to localize the exact point to cut the wall.

How do you dispose of a large animal carcass?

Proper disposal of carcasses is important to prevent transmission of livestock disease and to protect air and water quality. Typical methods for the disposal of animal mortalities have included rendering, burial, incineration, and composting; each with its own challenges.

How do you dispose of the dead animals?

Once the pest technician spots the unfortunate animal, he will use sturdy gloves to place it inside a tightly sealed plastic sack. The expert will then deliver the animal to the nearest incinerator to prevent any diseases from spreading.

What dead animal carcasses do you remove?

The professional can remove all sorts of deceased animals from your property, including rats, squirrels, foxes, cats, dogs, bats, pigeons, seagulls, adders and more.

How does your dead animal removal service work?

Your property will be examined by a skilled pest controller, who will then take the deceased animal’s carcass and dispose of it in line with all health and safety regulations.

How do I remove the dead animal smell in my house?

Once the carcass is removed, you can mask the repugnant odours by applying an enzymatic wash and a deodorant in the affected area.
