Getting Rid of Dead Animals

Typically, you will discover a dead animal in your Bloomington home through odor—dead animals aren't always visible but you can most certainly smell them. Wildlife critters often crawl into (or fall into) chimneys and walls, and many stay there forever. Read more below to learn why it's important to remove dead animals from your home as soon as possible to protect your family and pets.

Are Dead Animals Dangerous?

  • Both live and deceased wildlife are carriers of disease. Some illnesses humans can contract include:
    • Leptospirosis
    • Rabies
    • Plague
    • Encephalitis
  • Carcasses can cause permanent stains to drywall, flooring, and more
