    Dead Animal Removal Melbourne

    Dead animal removal from homes and offices in Melbourne is our specialty. It’s an unfortunate part of life that some animals prefer the warmth and relative safety of our homes and offices in preference to living outdoors. It’s also unfortunate that on occasion, these same animals will die indoors either in the subfloor, a wall or the roof space.

    The most common house invaders will be possums, rats and mice. A decaying mouse, possum or rat will be extremely potent. In fact, some would say it is unbearable.

    Melbourne Pest Control | Dead Animal Removal Melbourne

    A common sign of a dead animal is the presence of blowflies.

    These flies are able to detect a carcass very quickly after death. They will lay their eggs in the flesh. The eggs soon develop into maggots and they will begin to consume the flesh. By this stage there will be a very noticeable smell. If you don’t remove the carcass the maggots will develop into blowflies and they will soon enter your living zones as they will be attracted to the light.

    When dying, these animals have a habit of concealing themselves in a secure location that is hard to reach, such as a wall cavity. We specialise in locating the source of the odour, as we know the common tell tale signs of their presence.

    The smell of a decaying carcass can linger for months and depending on the wind conditions, the potency of the smell can fluctuate.

    There’s nothing quite like the smell of a decaying animal. Call us to remove it now. This is a rat and contaminated insulation we removed from a Melbourne house.
