Dead Animal Removal in Dallas, Texas

The Rodent Control Experts ™


There are few things more disturbing than finding a dead animal in your home, and few things more tense and revolting than the rising stench of what you suspect may be a dead animal, but are not sure. Omega Animal Removal is the superior locator and excavator of dead animals in your Dallas, Texas home. Whether it’s an opossum, rodent, raccoon or bat, locating the source of the problem is the first step. Once our Rodent Control Specialist pinpoints the exact area, they will go into the attic and search for the dead animal.

If our Rodent Control Specialist does not locate the dead animal in the attic, he or she will check the crawlspace, particular to homes with a pier and beam foundation. If the decomposing animal is inside of a wall void, the process can become complicated. Our Rodent Control Specialists use state-of-the-art techniques to locate the animal, always starting with their most natural and useful tool, their own nose. Locating where the dead animal is in the wall is most often done by smelling along the area until the odor becomes strongest.

Signs of a Dead Animal

  • A rank, musty smell is the most obvious sign of a dead animal stuck inside your Dallas home. It is important to move fast if a suspicious smell arises, so do not hesitate to call Omega Animal Removal at the first sign.
  • Infestations often result in dead species stuck inside the insulation or crawlspaces as animals tend to crawl into a solitary, dry space to end their days away from the unpredictability of the elements. If you hear noises in your attic call a specialist to inspect the area directly


Once our Rodent Control Specialist has pinpointed the exact area of the wall that the dead animal is in, he or she will drill quarter size holes into the drywall and then use a snake camera to check in the space between the beams to find the animal. Once found, our Rodent Control Specialist cuts a larger hole in the drywall to remove the specimen, and begin decontaminating, deodorizing and cleaning the affected area.

While removing the dead animal from your home certainly provides an instant relief from the treacherous odor that was lingering in your home, we want to solve the principal issue that caused the animal to die in your home, which is how the animal found a way into your Dallas home in the first place.

Fortunately, our Rodent Control Specialists are the best in the business at solving rat infestations, squirrel, raccoon, opossum and bat infestations among others. Our Rodent Control Specialist will thoroughly examine your home from top to bottom to determine where the animals are coming in, what type of animal infestation you are dealing with and what needs to be done to properly exclude your home’s attic or crawlspace from future infestations.
